Why oil canning? It's a one shot deal. Oil canning is usually a result of repetitive stresses

This will be good to watch and learn from. I have the kit too. I am glad that I did not think of a diorama. I would never get done.

Most detail views of V-2s (and exhibits I've seen in museums - including Peenemünde) show a 'distressed' skin surface which, I believe, was the result of spot welding used in construction which, when cooled, caused the skin to contract and shrink unevenly - especially near ribs and stringers. That's the effect I'm trying to replicate.

I'll second the oil canning. Very very noticeable on the example at 'La Coupole' at Wizernes, France. Well worth a visit if you are around St Omer.

Great subject Iain,

 

however, couldn't the V2 be classed as an LSP as its a flying thing?

Just spent another lunch-hour on figures (2 hours total now) - 5 coming together slowly.

 

If I can get access to the family PC this evening I'll post a photo-update - missile and figures!  :)

 

LSP? We had this discussion with Ron's build - it's not technically a 'Plane', although it is 'Large Scale' - so that's why it's over here.

 

I guess if we were LSA - Large Scale 'Aircraft' - then...  ;)

Some images...

 

Main Rocket parts:

 

chA98w.jpg

 

Taped up whilst drying - fit OK - but needed a little fettling to minimise subsequent clean-up:

aHNSTq.jpg

 

Basic rocket sections assembled and de-seamed. A few bits to clean up - then polish and mask ready to do some surface 'distressing':

Rocket exhaust - may do some detailing here - have left loose whilst I assembled the rocket halves. Bit of clean-up needed where sprue went across centre:

Back in a mo...

And the 5 figures - a mix of master Box and Tristar:

 

eJ9YQL.jpg

 

Tristar figure (left) needs some Milliput filler - but they are all coming together slowly.

 

The Masterbox figures are broken down in such a way as to give a thin appearance to the lower sections of the long coats - but the Tristar figure needed a lot of material removing between hem of coat and his legs - all done with a fresh scalpel blade, followed by a brush over with some MEK to consolidate the surface (I meant to put him on his back to illustrate - but in hurry and wrong figure!):

I had this kit until recently, I rushed out and got it the day it was released but then sold it a few weeks back... I had big plans, but they were never going to happen, just a dream. So on that note I really look forward to seeing yours built, Iain. Sounds like it's going to be everything I wanted to do.

More progress - the missile comes together...

 

Fins and rocket exhaust added:

Joint faces of upper and lower sections trued up by rubbing in a circular motion on a sheet of 600 grit wet and try, on a flat surface, just like prepping a vacform kit:

 

Ub568V.jpg

 

And some of the resulting gaps filled with this rather useful acrylic filler - add to gaps with a cocktail stick, wipe away with damp kitchen towel:

Jointing ring bonded to lower section - note internal sprue left in situ to help with strength:

 

hURkNd.jpg

 

And assembled missile body:

Next step - a good polish, some re-instatement of detail - then surface 'distressing' as mentioned earlier in thread.

 

Have fun!

I'm really looking forward to the tin-canning. It's a common occurrence on enough aircraft that learning how to do it correctly would be a huge bonus to any skillset.
