  1. Great looks very good. Makes me wonder if I should even try to finish mine.....
  2. Finished the cockpit and now I am trying to get everything together. DSCN1413 by Rick Martens, on Flickr DSCN1407 by Rick Martens, on Flickr DSCN1408 by Rick Martens, on Flickr DSCN1414 by Rick Martens, on Flickr The observers place. Not much to see only the seat is visible. At least I know it is there. DSCN1415 by Rick Martens, on Flickr And it is big, larger then I expected. The overall fit of the parts is not to good so next thing is getting the wings attached to the fuselage. I already cracked up the fuselage so I have to sleep on that one before I screw everything up. I have a question for you. I see people make their own paintmasks with the Silhouette printer. I own one of those but call me a digital nightmare I cannot seem to get things to work. How do you make roundels, stars and bars and letters and figures? Can anyone explain that to me in a way you would tell that to a 3 year old I suppose. Thanks in advance. Rick
  3. Hi Kev, you can move it over.
  4. Offcourse I never made it in time, but I am still working on the Beaufighter. Almost ready with finishing the interieur, only have the seatbelts to paint and some small bits and ends to finish. DSCN1330 by Rick Martens, on Flickr DSCN1335 by Rick Martens, on Flickr DSCN1350 by Rick Martens, on Flickr DSCN1351 by Rick Martens, on Flickr DSCN1341 by Rick Martens, on Flickr DSCN1346 by Rick Martens, on Flickr I know it is far from perfect but it looks ok. Next is finishing the inside and button her up. Rick.
  5. Still working on the Beaufighter. The interieur is finished. Or I am finished with it which is closer to the truth. Made the observers seat and some instruments. The ammo boxes are covered with thissue soaked in white glue. I saw pictures of zipped ammo boxes which allowed me to get an easy escape from a potentional big problem. Tossed in some lines and cables ad voila that should do the trick. 110_6242 by Rick Martens, on Flickr 110_6244 by Rick Martens, on Flickr 110_6243 by Rick Martens, on Flickr 110_6248 by Rick Martens, on Flickr Now I most focus on the engines. They look ok but as far as I know the exhausts came together in a collective ring in the front of the cowling and from there on to the main exhaust. I have no idea how to replicate that now but time will tell I guess. Also some brake lines on the landing gear and after that time for paint. Due to some construction work in our house I am not able to airbrush, hopefully in October everything will be done so I can start throwing paint around. Hope you like it, sorry for the lousy pictures. Rick.
  6. Finished building the cockpit. 110_5545 by Rick Martens, on Flickr Overvieuw, dials are from Airscale, wiring is made out of lead wire. All the rest is Evergreen and the sparebox. 110_5547 by Rick Martens, on Flickr The tub and the port side, all the levers are made out of small strips of metal. 110_5550 by Rick Martens, on Flickr Instrument panel, both sidewalls and the steering wheel. 110_5551 by Rick Martens, on Flickr The seat, the belts are made out of an empty cheese tube, the rest is Evergreen 110_5555 by Rick Martens, on Flickr Dryfit 110_5554 by Rick Martens, on Flickr Port sidewall 110_5556 by Rick Martens, on Flickr Slowly it comes together now. I am quite happy the way it turns out so far. Rick
  7. Nice!! I will be looking to this one allready saw some useful images for my own build. How do the other parts look? Have fun!!
  8. Eric, Thank you for the info, one quick question what kind of vinyl do you use to make the masks? Rick
  9. Great model and great story. What kind of machine you use to make those masks? Can you operate that kind of machine with, lets say not much more then moderate computerskills? Rick
  10. Did some work on the inside and the landing gear 110_5528 by Rick Martens, on Flickr 110_5529 by Rick Martens, on Flickr Working on the internals, starboardside cockpit done. Made the sidewalls behind the cockpit to cover the area to the observers place. I know most of it will not be visible but I know it is there. Ran out of ribbing material... 110_5534 by Rick Martens, on Flickr IP done with a little help from Airscale. Used all references I could get. Maybe not all that accurate but with some paint on it, it might just look right. 110_5536 by Rick Martens, on Flickr Starboard side console done 110_5539 by Rick Martens, on Flickr Made a start with the floor, all out of Evergreen card. 110_5543 by Rick Martens, on Flickr Also made a start with the landing gear. Filled the ejectionmarks and hollowed the wheelhubs. 110_5544 by Rick Martens, on Flickr The bench is the usual mess... Hope you like it.
  11. Yeah I know it looks good but it I like to scratch the interieur with bits and pieces I have lying around. We willl see how it turns out. So far I have made the floor so that is the base to start with.
  12. Hi Brian, Thanks. I sanded everything down and after that I drew everyting on with a pencil, after that I did the rescribing. I do not know if it is all that accurate due to the fact that there are a lot of different references.
