I have been using Frank Mitchellís excellent ďhow to build an FGRĒ series . I would not have attempted this without it, so thanks to Frank for spending the time putting it together and posting.
After reading through the guide I thought the intakes look harder than the rear end of the airframe for the FG only Srey engines. I was sooooo wrong.
So far I have completed the major surgery on the airframe and the intakes have been widened. The intakes were quite easy really (due to Frankís images), and so was the front end surgery . I was feeling very confident and started the rear end. That has been a nightmare so far. Donít seem to be able to get the right shape for the engines. As I said before I have a spare lower airframes if I need it, and I might!
My plan now is to attack the engine area with both top and bottom parts of the airframes attached together. So the cockpit will need to be installed. Black Box F-4C Box cockpit will be used. I know that the J cockpit would be better to use for an FGR but I only have one J cockpit which will be used with the Wild Hair conversion (FGR2). Most changes are to the rear pit and I have moulded two new side walls ( from the BB F-4J cockpit) and done some surgery to both left and right consoles.
Any input about the rear end would be appreciated, I know it looks a mess at the moment!
