The middle sections of both sides are done . Not perfect … but that’s okay for me .

This morning i did the first sketching of the rear end propeller parts / drive system , this will be continued on a computer with a drawing program .

Back to topic …

I don’t know which variant to build , i want to place the turbine style props into a round shaped housing . Or better complete naked without any cover ?

Please help me :cry:

Not much traffic here :thinking:.

I worked on the wing bases and sanded the shape to fit on the new place .

Cool idea for shaping the wing bases! That’s looking good! :hammer_and_wrench:

The new wing mounts and the body shaping look really good … I’m confused by the turbine props though … Can you show what the props look like for size etc . I would of thought they would need some form of housing around them to channel and direct air flow ??

There is nothing but housings on the pic :thinking: i am not shure what to do …

OK, I see it better now. I would use either of the bottom 2 versions in that case.

Yeah I agree with @Johnnych01 , one of the bottom two.

I would go for the bottom ones as well. They look more finished and streamlined.

I am going to do this after I finish the Winter Wonderland campaign…the new 1/32 Tie Fighter by AMT…

Then I will also try to build and refinish this… the Revell 1/29 X Wing…should scale pretty close with the Tie…out of the box it is pretty much a toy…I have some 3D printed parts coming…but not going totally crazy $$$$…some updated parts, repainting and a new pilot.

Checkmate. …:european_castle: :crown: :thinking:

Hi guys!
Lately, I’ve been working on the diorama base. I glued all of the Evergreen Styrene sheets together (see large joints). In addition, I started scribing and adding a few fractures (bottom left and middle right). The green tabs with red dots are rough landing gear boundary points.

Double-sided tape tacked-in for positioning the concrete sheet onto the wooden base.

Giving the Styrene sheets some time to cure before moving onto the next steps… texturing, painting and light weathering.

“Hurry up and make a move, nincompoop.” :face_with_monocle:

Thank’s for having a look.

First tryout shows that the angle of the wings are not correct, so i have to put a sheet of 1,5mm between to push the wings a bit upwards .

And finally this evening the main parts are together , most of the clear parts must be fixed from the inside …

At all, the kit seems to come from the stone age …

Day 9 .

Much much fine sanding done .
Fuselage and wings are prepared for the landing gear …

The complete silhouette looks good for me .
Maybe i build the props without housing , that could be around 50-60 single blades to made .
Sanding is the ZEN of model work :pray:.

Gerrit, looking good. Shape looks nice with the wings on. Question though … If the blade props are going on the rear of the fuselage, what are you going to use the wing engine mounts for ?
