Total Scratch build of the front end of a B17G!

Recommended Posts

Good afternoon and cheers for your comments lads :)

Time for a very quick update.

 I managed to scratch the Hydraulic station that holds the electric pump etc which is situated just behind the oxygen tanks on the Starboard cockpit wall.

As per usual ...all made from plastic and wire.................

Cheers Loic !...and hello to all!

 

Here is a small update on a wee bit of progress.

 

The vacuum bottles/flask for the crew to have their fix of caffeine and to keep them warm during those long cold sorties!

 

The hardest part was the paper cups........made from paper! rolleyes.gif

Haven't you finished it yet.. :)

 

It's a wonderful piece of work, love the flasks and cups. I thought it was looking a bit spacious in there... the turret will clutter it up a lot I imagine.

Hi there chaps

 

Slow ...slow ...and slow progress!! sad.png .........but never the less ...progress!

 

It took me some time to get the plug ready for vac forming the upper turret .....as always I used Balsa wood for the plug.....not very exciting photos but shows the small progress I have made wink.png ..................

 

The blocks of Balsa were glued and clamped to dry for a couple of days....
