1/32nd Lockheed Hudson (Tigger Vacform)

Recommended Posts

Ambitious project and cool subject, Hudson with boat under the belly should look really cool.

 

I'll keep an eye on this one.

 

Cheers,

Jason

Great project, I like the idea because I love lockheed twins.

My father flew for a construction company and they had this Lodestar for a few years. It was white, gray and orangey red. I always thought it was cool.

Did you get a Dauntless yet? Were you planning to take a mould off the engine, or buy two kits?

 

Have you seen this http://www.ebay.com/itm/Vector-VEC32006-1-32-Wright-R-1820-G-late-/140891037032

 

Or, I can lend you my dauntless engine, but it's not built, and I don't want it to be built?? You could glue it together with white glue to make your mould then return it though??

Not even thought any more of the engine yet, just sorting out the fuselage at the moment. Tom Probert does have a spare set that he's going to lend me after xmas. So will see from there :) Thanks for the offer though!!

Apologies for the lack of updates, I get more done and I'm quite busy with work at the moment..

I've managed to get the windows cut out, cockpit floor in place, cabin floor in place and some frame work, curtains plus the bulkheads with some detail. Been making the radio parts they just need painting and fitting but won't be fitted until it's all painted inside. Hopefully look ok but considering your not going to see much.....

Also note the square hole in the side, thats for a spar. More on that later.

Does anyone know what colour to do the seat fabric? Or would it be leather. Also, any clues onto a best match for the interior green. Coming up to paint soon so may just make something that looks 'alright'.

Hi mate,

 

I've noticed you've picked this one up again over at Britmodeller. It'd be great if you could continue the progress with us too. It even qualifies for the new ABIM GB, so I could move it if you like.

Well, I'm back again... and for good this time. I need to get this done for next year, so it can go on the LSP/32ndSIG table for Scale Model World 2018... It's a lot of work ahead, but one of my favourite non-Soviet aircraft and i'm shocked I've had this for as long as I have, I thought it was only 2 years!!

I stripped out some of the old work *ages* ago and have taken a photo just now of where I'm at. So yeah, a lot of work ahead... but my bench as it is as i'm writing this, scratching my head as to where to start.. wish me luck!
