  1. Hi Craig, Don't know how I missed this build but ... MY GOD! .. I hear words thrown around Like "Epic' , 'Awesome' ' Outstanding' and the like ... you are one serious modelling Artisan - who's dedicated , talented, experimental , willing to take risks, push the envelope... just WOW! I like how you turned it from a basic plastic assembly kit to an engineering resin/plastic/metal-miracle! I wished I came in on this earlier... I applaud you no end Craig for your Go-for-it approaches ( whether it works or not) and your obvious Brilliantly Talented efforts here! Phil
  2. Thanks Troy, It's a personal project that's been going on for the last 2 years... maybe half-way through at this point in time ( I hope).... It's an Aussie Ford V8 Called the Falcon GTHO Phase IV - For those of you who don't know it ( from O/S ) It's got the Ford Mustang Boss 351 V8 engine in it... and can do 150 Mp/h or 240 Km/h Thanks Mate , Yep - you're right! It's a real car - yes... a car that I have always been wanting since the 1970's... so now as my future retirement 'toy' ... ( Yes another model toy-though a lot bigger and louder)
  3. UPDATE: Hi Guys, ...for those following this thread project - I've had to hit the pause button for now, as my mum has been the centre of trouble for me - on every level : 94 years old falling down - breaking her Femer - going to hospital - rehab- nursing homes- dealing with Government buearocracies - less than supportive nursing home management- Coroner virus lock-downs, chasing parts for my Muscle-Car project ..... and so it goes on. I have been in the centre of this storm since Christmas ... being the power of attorney for mums affairs .. dealing with all this and working as well,
  4. Beautiful work! How did you do the riveting? ....one-at-a-time or hand wheel? Pip
  5. Sikorsky S-58 or Wessex H-30 + - one was built under license - i believe is was the Wessex but could be wrong Pip
  6. Kent, Your work in all it's forms, continues to amaze and inspire me... You are a very talented man. Thanks for posting Pip
  7. Oh My Goodness Kent... Every new topic exceeds the last one! Truly Awesome work and Artisan too! Phil
  8. They are people who didn't quite make it into the realm of Bureaucracy as a job choice.. ( talented as they are in micro-anal things) and ended up as a shelf shocking technician. Pip
  9. Unbelievable... what non-sense. No aircraft in real life is made with raised panel-lines!... its just plainly stupid.( maybe unless it is a local repair patch with sealer around it) In aircraft production as far back as the 1930's ...The panels are either butted up against each other - riveted and/or sealed or overlapped riveted /sealed. The reason ( as i understand) for raised panel-lines in kits produced is basic economics for the manufacturer. It is far cheaper to engrave lines in the metal mold production cavity ( which makes the 'raised - lines' in the plastic
  10. Thanks Muchly Guys! The funny thing was, when I got it to this partially completed stage - as above ( without the pedals in the front as yet) .....as I fiddled with the thing, to my surprise - the structure did move at the joints! .. it actually does move like the original, except in miniature! I only moved it a little and decided not to play with it as it gave me no end of trouble building the 'THING' ....and getting it to this stage .. so the last thing I need after all that effort, is to break it ( again) and start all over! ..and burn up another month or two.... No Thank
  11. Rudder Pedals Progress ... Though out of sequence ( construction-wise) - for a myriad of reasons, in the following line of photos ....we now move to the centre rudder bar section.... This centre section Rudder bar is an intricate piece to make and also will be a challenge to copy in resin! BUT, Once I've finished the piece ready for copying .... I've figured out how to copy it in the meantime ... wait for it.... in a 1 piece mold! Details will be shown at that future time The Photo above ....
  12. Thanks Anthony - Glad you're enjoying my journey Pilots Rudder pedals - (Cont) What I call : SIDE-LINK BARS This piece gave me the Greatest Grief of all.. very small - very accurate and very fiesty ! What more can I say? I've Highlighted these hard to see or elusive Side-Link Bars, that are obscure by the foot pedals and other bits of the structure in most references I've seen ... but from what i know - I've marked/drawn and highlighted in 'Pink' and supply every photo angle I can find ( only 2 ) to give you at least an idea of what they should be
