    blackbetty got a reaction from DonH in Quinta Studio - 3D printed interior for Su-25, F-16C NEW   
    my personal view is:
    1) i dont use things i can hardly see even with my glasses
    2) with my abilities cant assemble a kit that complements the detail on these, the rest would look like a toy
    3) the price is to high for me
    to each his own

    Getting there....this shape is surprisingly tricky.
     
    I am showing you guys this as I try and figure it out as I go. Allowing you to see how rough it is under the primer. More refining to go and then the other side and replace surface details.  Half of this will be removed and grafted into the piece AlbertD has sent me.
     
    Cheers guys

    Unexpected alright, I didnt see that shape change coming either LOL
     
    I have spent waaaaaaay too many hours just on this corner of the heat shield area. 
    So after bulging this area out with plastic card I have been slowly building up the shape with CA.  I have stared at so many Phantom back-end photos, I am seeing them in my dreams now!
    I wont know if I have it right until I get some Mr Surfacer on there and see if I can get a 'true feel' on the shape...hopefully before I go to bed tonight.
     

     
    Phew!

    Apart from the obvious patch work paint finish, I kept her clean i.e. no oil leaks. The SAAF really maintained their aircraft in good condition :

    plasticcard for the floor of the pit and some old resin seats from verlinden. these are for an F-4 and seem to be MB Mk 5s, so they would work

    since the tailboom is very long, i will have to insert weight under the cockpit floor, but will do this from the back of the front fuselage part

    i started to modify the front fuselage for the cockpit floors. front and back seats are staggered in height. the inside of the 3D part is hollow with just some thin strings of material present, so after cutting through the surface it pretty easy to make room. i used a mini cutoff wheel and stanley knife for this.

    i did some experimenting with spray on filler and it seems to work quite nicely, ll show that later
     
    if you think of this project, you will need this book:
     

     
    the mmp books are excellent, but older publications are hard to find (expensive - good luck finding that one for a decent price), but its a must. lots of pics, drawings and a colour guide
    i also ordered the still availible mmp plans for this aircraft, its 48th scale, but i will blow these up. worked with willie, so it will do here

    Well, the big Trumpy Avenger is done. For those that have followed this build it has been an adventure. Her she is in her glory, warts and all...
