Very nice work Isaac. The parts fit nicely, and you're doing a very clean build.

Cool Final small details

At this point, I added the nose gear aft door , the pitot tube in the tail and the other fuel tank and fins.

Only thing remaining is to make a plug and vacuform a canopy

Cool making a canopy mold

First step is to make a paper mold/ tub to pour the plaster into.


Here is the template

and now formed into a paper canopy ( glue tabs on the outside )

Test fit on the model

cross section check

and here is the tub

Cool making the plaster plug

next is to pour the plaster of Paris

FJ-1 Fury in 1/33 scale-img_2975.jpg


add wood pedestals to the top ( this will keep the plaster mold off the vacuform table for a better conformity ).

after it is dry, use hot water and fingers to break/melt the paper mold away.

and here is the initial plaster canopy plug.

and light sanding, it needs fixing where I left the internal frames ( next time, when the tub is dry, remove those before pouring the plaster ). I had to gouge them below the surface and add putty. Nothing major though.

putty repair and all is well. sanded and smooth.
