Do it right. uh huh. do it right. do it right, do it right, do it right, Do it right! Uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! [chorus] Twist it! shake it, shake it, shake it, shake it baby! Here we go loop di loo! Shake it out baby! Here we go loop di lie! Bend over, let me see you shake your tail feather (bis) Come on, let me see you shake your tail feather (bis) So - talking of Tail Feathers... Tail fins have been primed with Halfords grey plastic primer and laid over a blown up scale drawing from priginal Lockheed plans. Dimensions cross checked and shape corroberated against photo's. The moulded fins are too short - luckily by about the thicknes of the tailplane. You can see the fin being split in two where it will go either side of the tailplane - along with the cut-out rudders. Here's one half after surgery. A lot of cleaning up and re-shaping will be needed... Here's the tailplane - smoothed - shaped/corrected - and under multiple coats of primer... Have fun... Iain
I have been after something big (32nd scale) to get into, I lost interest in the Hudson when I cut to much out, the scratch built Savage has progressed and I just keep looking at it, and I don't own too much 1/32nd stuff so the Tracker is top of the list. As you can see I've already cut it out and added a keel, I have no need to add any bulkheads within that section as John "Tigger" uses nice thick plastic, so it's quite rigid now. I will of course add bulkheads for the cockpit and rear of the keel.. Not sure on scheme, I'm just going to concentrate on getting the main areas built for now. I'm very lucky to be able to take my models into work until further notice, so at the moment I'm progressing very nicely on a Combat Models Martin Mars, and now this. This is todays work and it's some size! It's next to a Kinetic 48th kit that I'm going to use for reference. Apologies for the poor photos, I'm up at 5am and not got time to get all my stuff out... Piccys.
Hello and good day to you all. At first, for all the large scale plane lovers happy newyear. After i saw the build of Ian his Early Warning Star i tought:"Wow, this is big and this is SUPER". So i order a Connie at Tigermodels. Almost a year now it was parked on a shelf in my hobbyroom. I think it is time to make a little start now. The idea is to build a EC-121R Batcat. A Connie that flew during the Vietnam war. The plane flew as a relay aircraft over the Ho Chi Minh Trail. A lot of sensors were dropped on the trail. The sensors send its signal to the Batcat. They pass the signal true to a base. This was a small part of operation Igloo White. My Batcat will be the famous Da Nang Glider. Plane number 67-21487. This plane had it's four prop's feathterd during the flight. The plane made a emergency landing on Da Nang airbase. So here are some pics. A Batcat over the trail http:// A pic. in one of the many books i have about the Connie http:// The body finaly on the workbench http:// The main body filled with foam. http:// So this is it for now.
