Dang! That is looking great! Love the cockpit by the way. Did you vacuform it? Or use some other technique? [ I can't recall the name, but there was one where you make a wood mold....]

I actually forgot I had a thread I had neglected over in aviation, so I guess I'll be double posting over here.

I made the cockpit from plastic packaging. I made the cockpit tabs out, then filled the interior with apoxiesculpt (you could use fimo or super sculpey as well), once the material hardened, I soaked off the paper and filled and sanded any low spots. I then glued it to an empty gum container that was laying around.

I cut a piece of packaging and heated it over an open flame. Once it started to sag, I stretched it over the buck, let it cool, and then trimmed it up.

Cool

Hope these were worth the wait.

I wanted to get the prototype almost finished before I posted pics.

17" long (1/48 scale roughly).

FYI: both the tail-fins and the wings fold in and down. I was going to try to engineer retractable landing gear, but that's not going to happen this time.

I have to do some minor redesign on the landing gear and add some textures I missed.

I also have to make the instructions. As I said early on, THIS IS NOT FOR A BEGINNING MODELER!
