  1. Ok here is my new project. First a little history. I grew up on the China Lake naval base in the late 50's and early 60's. Yes I am that old. Anyway I would see all of the Navy jets flying over the town almost everyday. And when I got a little older I could ride a bus out to the airfield on Armed Forces day and walk around the real jets. Early jets are in my blood. So where to start? Here is where. Years ago I started a 1:48th Vigi and with the Cutting Edge conversion I began building an A3J. Got pretty far along but...you know how it goes. Shelf of Doom for at least 15 years. So this is my starting point. I will use the SOD model and try to reproduce it in 1:32. Yes I will look at 3 view drawings but this is my main reference. With some calipers, some crude drawings and basic cad knowledge I am off. First I began with the central fuselage. Basically a rectangular box with some rounded edges. It was too big to print all at once on my machine so....2 pieces. You can see that I have incorporated some cutouts for the MLG bays. Almost 7 inches tall already. I have also added wing roots onto the fuselage sides. I tried designing in some tabs to aid in alignment and construction. They didn't print as well as I had hoped. Here are the intakes still sitting on the print stage. Lots more to come. Dan
