Scratch built Thunder Fighter

Here is my scratch built Thunder Fighter. I know it is not the prettiest, but in my defence, I have never built one of these from scratch and I think I built it too small. The next one I build will be bigger.
I desided to paint it in colonial colors.

I hope that all of you will enjoy it.

Have you seen Martin Sanger's Thunderfighter over on paperaviation.de? It builds up into a nice model which was very easy to customise, good size too.

pretty impressive for a scratch build. how did you get the different sections of the engine to fit together perfectly without using any CAD software?

if i know how to do that i would be scratch building a zillion things.

Sushibones,
I do know about that thunder fighter. I have it and built it. I have to rebuild it. I had some problems with the instructions and mine looks like crap, but like I said, I plan on building a better on later.

Marksolo,
I have line drawings of all of the verients of the thunder fighter (and a few that I have been designing my self). I used those as a guide. I started with two outlines of the plane (as if I were drawing the top or bottum of the plane). I drew out where every thing needed to be placed and started making the pieces and glueing them on.
As for designing the planes, I just hand draw everything, or use paint shop to "cut and paste" what I need.

Thank you every one for the kind words.

my next project is a forward swept wing verson.

Here are the line drawings I have used for my models. I tried to post the new one that I am working on but it will no download. I keep getting the message. (This BMP image has the incorrect file extension.) I am not sure what I have done wrong or what to do to fix it. BTW the MK2B (two/four seater) I designed myself.

Marksolo,
I hope these help you in your scratch build.

Thanks for the details RB. Often all we need is the knowledge that it can be done to make things happen.

Thanks for the inspirations!

Marksolo:
Do you have a CAD program for designing such? If so, I would like to see these made into production models. Also if I can get your e-mail I will send the FSW varient. I tried to upload it but it would not take.

Rhaven,

Load the last file into your paint program and save it as a .JPG file.
Then it will upload.

Nice drawings, by the way.

Mike
