  2. Skyraider Production Memo (#10) Working with the inner surface of the wing 1. I cut the machine gun and the magazine so you'll be able to see it. Lightly sand it off from the back in order to make it look more real. The cartridge isn't shiny, but I decided to paint it to have more of a dull and smoky essence. I think that the cartridge I used before is normally shiny, but I wanted to play around with it a bit. What I used here is wood brown + olive drab in small amounts. 2. Before gluing this together, put masking tape behind the inside of the aircraft make sure that the paint does not
  3. Skyraider Production Model Memo (#9) How are you doing? Take here. Today I'll show you the cut part of the main wing! 1. The assembly steps are basically the same from page 17 to 19 of the instruction manual. The application of the pylon hole can be put in many various places. On the instruction manual, after assembling the parts that are written in “caution†we'll be opening a hole guide line. This is going to be a big deal, so please do not forget about it! 2. Disconnecting the machine gun! The machine gun part of the inner and outer part of the wing have been cut. Cutting this p
  4. Skyraider Production Memo (#8) Continuing from yesterday. The whole part is ripping so the base is painted with primer and we'll continue to paint the whole part green is a choice but… since the whole part is cleanly ripped, I'm going to go with the black wire instead. 1. First off, put cords in the already opened holes of the cylinder's plug 2. Insert the earlier cylinder into the back and front, 3. When the aluminum line and no. 6 wire glued together, it'll come out very smoothly 4. The Wright R3350 Engine is finished! It's so cool! This is the heart of this tough guy! A power c
  5. Skyraider Production Memo (#7) How is everyone doing? Take here. All right so last time we left off at the detailing of the engine. This time I'll be introducing to you the plug cord. ■Additional Plug cord piping assembly 1. I've changed a bit of the diameter of the plug cord pipes by making them smaller. There isn't a perfect ring-shape for the pipe so while trying to look for it …. “Vallejo color†cap is just the perfect size! ♪ With a diameter of 1.5mm, wrap the cap around the aluminum line. If you cut the lighter parts, it will turn into a neatly cut ring. 2. Make 36 ti
  6. Skyraider Production Memo (#6) Hi everyone! How are you all doing? Take here. This time we'll be continuing on the exhaust and air intake pipes. 1. Painting the exhaust and air intake pipes. Using wood brown, tan, and black paint you can create a gradation to add a burned effect. Adding more flat base all around will turn it into a nice matte color! Paint the bottom a little unevenly so it looks more and more real. It's looking pretty good! 2. Application of the exhaust and air intake (page 15 of the manual) Set up middle intake pipes (C-13) just as they were explained in the manual
  7. Hello RnoAF! You can purchase the SWS Option Part here in the link I've included for you. However, this item is only on sale through VOLKS USA and ships to USA, Canada, and Mexico. http://volksusastore...&product_id=803 Thank you very much for your interest in ZOUKEI-MURA!
  8. Skyraider Production Memo (#5) This time we will be making and processing holes for the exhaust pipe. *Giving the exhaust pipe more detail. Drill the mouth part of the hole and process it to look like a pipe. The atmosphere will look even more realistic, so please let's try this out! 1. First, make a guide to open a hole on the top using 1 mm drill. Focus on the center and carefully open a hole. 2. The made hole should be around 1.7 mm and any size around it is a-ok! Lightly drill the hole so you don't happen to tear it. So how is it? It's looking pretty good right? After cutting t
  9. Skyraider Production Memo (Number 4) Hi! How are you all doing? Take here and I'll be showing you the how to detail your engine up. 1. Before gluing the cylinder blocks, paint the flat parts silver. After removing the parting lines from the air intake. Paint the bottom part silver. I will ink the cooling cylinder fin at this point. 2. Here we cut the cylinder head that is protruded out with a cutter. Open up a hole with a plug cord at about 0.5mm with a drill. It will open up the front and rear cylinder. 3. I've created gear housing with the plug cord piping instead of the B-12 hous
  10. (Here are addition pictures of the fuselage side!)
  11. Skyraider Production Model Memo (Number 3) We will now cut the fuselage side Using a sign pen to make cut lines, use a motor tool to shave off and cute. Be careful when cutting and rotating because the shape of the plastic might warp and even melt. Use the motor tool and chisel to make thin expressions on the fuselage part. On the cut fuselage part, we'll recreate the ribs. The plastic plates are made one by one. So what do you think? It's looking like the real thing already right? Next is the engine and how to up its detail. We'll introduce the installation of the main wing.
