Sepecat Jaguar GR3.A FORWARD FUSELAGE MASTERS COMPLETE...MOSTLY&#33

Recommended Posts

It's been a while since I started a proper build thread. So much of my time has been spent on projects for others - I haven't had time to build something for myself. So after finally clearing off everyone else's "to do" lists, I have actually started cutting some plastic. This has been a long time in the making. Some of you may remember the original computer work I posted some time ago. Old Jag Thread. I have since completely redrawn the computer model and finished the exterior details. After some close scrutiny the plans I used to start the model just were not up to snuff and a redo was in order.

Here are the shots: Keen eyes will find some missing fillets and blends in the surfaces (gun shrouds and engine to fuse join - come to mind). These fillets are really difficult to create on the computer model, but much easier on the physical one - so I opted not to duplicate them.

The primary purpose of the 3d model is make sure the parts fit together - for example the flaps - I may even make them posable on the real model.

These are the forms that will make up the internal structure.
