Hello All!

First of all gutted, I couldn't Peterborough Model Show on Sunday, I had to work...

Apologies Phil.

 

Took a bit of work but finished the Radar OPS Station.

Added a few bits of etching, as an engineer, the frames would be held on the wall by The Force without bracketry.

Milled a slot as well ready for the cables.

How are you doing the stubs for your wing mounted HVAR Rockets?

Also not sure if the 3D printed oxygen bottles are for the main landing gear Bays as in the B version you don't see them

Hi,

Regarding the HVAR, I haven't a clue!

Something bespoke no doubt to reproduce this;

 

d713a56a-abf3-4893-8368-75e549a07bd5.png

 

Mixture of photo etch and 3D Printing probably

Do you have any ideas?

I know that I am going for the 5 inch HVAR Rocket,4pcs by MK.1 Design #MA32002

 

Also, I agree on the oxygen bottles, I need to research this a bit more before I make a decision.

In this photo, I reckon you will see them from the Gear Bay though?

On the B version the landing gear hatches close so you actually don't see the air tanks. I don't want you doing more work that you won't see. On the Rockets I'm actually doing something right now. it's for the B-25 though. You may be able to Rob something out of the Avenger kit or look at ISARACAL P-51 Mustang HVAR Rockets Stubbs
