Assembly

Hello PMs

Well its dry so ive had a chance to install the gauges on the dry panel.

This is the lower panel with all its bits:



And now with the upper panel attached:



Right side



Left side



Top view



It only needs the arming handles, fuel shut off and another lever which im not sure what it does.

Oh yes, the compass - its going to be in the way for the framing so Vermin King, ill make it as a seperate item.

Enjoy

levers and handles

Thanks Mike - I will sir

OK, Ive been doing some work on the handles and levers. First of all was the Gun cocking levers x2. I made these from Wooden dowels. Cut to length, sanded and stuck together and simply painted black (weathered a little);



Painted and loose fitted on the panel:

Left gun



Right gun



This one was more difficult, the engine stop handle. I tried to make the handle from card and paper and failed to make something of a substancial realistic shape, so..... I used putty. Its a first time for this material but after a lot of sanding, see what you think?





Lots of sanding



Bit of paint:



Now for the last of my letraset!!



I stuck it on an old ink stamp and painted this black, handle in position:





Hope you got some ideas from this set of pics.

Just the fuel lever left to build!!

Enjoy

Last Part??? I think....

Hello PM's

Just had a week or so to figure out and make the next item. This is the fuel tap or fuel shut off cock as I would call it.

Here's one on a museum C205 (similar aircraft) - it has an orange handle with the Letter B for Benzine:



Nice and simple at first with just a card arch made from brown/white packing card:



And sanded smooth:



It was next sprayed black and varnished. The lever was 2mm MDF, cut out to shape and sprayed silver:



The end of the handle had me stumped for a few days but I reverted back to basics and glued a load of white card together to shape whilst attached to a drill:



The handle was too short at first but I simply added more card however, the superglue I used was strong! It took me ages to shape it!!



Eventually shaped:



Very top of the handle:



A little orange spray:



I had some MR DECAL left over from an Amazon buy some years ago and so designed a letter B to fit the end (oh and some other Macchi Graphics) of the handle like so:



This I then printed off on the special paper and cut out:



Simply placing it in water for 30 seconds allows you to tranfer it onto your object - really cool stuff:



Here it is in place:





It really is starting to look good!

A few more little items to go before she is mounted and completed.

Enjoy

Well, as I see it, there is a niche in design/creation and you are it. Way to go, pro!

Every time I tune in here I'm utterly amazed at the creative and and 'thinking outside the box' way that each part of these panels is dealt with. A true artist and modeller.
