Thanks Vermin_King! Anyway, here's an update for the A-26. Finished the 2nd engine and the turrets for the fuselage. Those little buggers were tricky. The landing gear can wait till tomorrow. Anyway, here it is.


Jarrod,
Spacemen1969



P.S. Sorry if the pictures look out of focus. I'm stuck with a webcam for my pictures. Not the best, but gets the job done.

Just finished the landing gear. And just for a heads up Aaron, the struts for the landing gears that go below the engines are a little too long. About half of the struts should be removed. I'll post pictures either tomorrow or Wednesday. My webcam is at my dads house, and I live at my mom's. So expect them soon

Pictures

Here's the pictures of the A-26. If your wondering why there's a toothpick in the back, it's because that's what I used to counter the weight of the plane. I forgot to put a coin in the front of the model, so this was the next best option.

Very nice. So there's no way to surgically implant the coin now?

Great builds. I better get my rear in gear!
I might pick this one up. It looks like a great model and you did a wonderful build.

I forgot to add weight to the nose of my T-37 too. What I did was cut a small panel opening between the nose gear doors. I used a reeeeeeeaaaaaally sharp new blade and made the flaps just big enough to fit the weight.

By putting it between the gear doors, you can hide any uneven seams left over. You can't even tell where I cut mine open.

Hmm sounds like we have a few neurosurgeons on the forums. Nah just kidding! But still, great advice. Might need to used those ideas in the future. Next up is a OH-6 Cayuse AKA AH-6 Little Bird. Gonna start on Wednesday. I have some beta builds to finish for Aaron, so she's put on hold for now. Until then, good night and good luck.

Are there other people who think A-26 is a good looking airplane in any size?

Well, looks like the OH-6 is put on hold for a little longer. I recently found my RAH-66 Comanche which I started about 4 months ago and misplaced somewhere at my dad's house. Now that I've found it, i'm gonna try and finish it by the end of the weekend. Got a busy next few days. But if it snows in my town again, it'll most likely be done by Saturday. Anyway, here's what I've got done so far.


Jarrod,
