Thank you, Troy.

 

I have three references.  The first:

The drawings have come from this book.

 

Rex pages:  Fair Use Act in play:

I see in the middle right photo that maybe I should change my raised fillet to a scribed fillet.

For panel lines and cowling breather openings.

 

The third:

There are other Rex's in the book.  There is a counter rotating prop one and one with a spinner that is found on the George.  If you'd like I can post pictures of those.

 

Thank you for looking and liking.

Sincerely,

Mark

Is that the orange prototype, with the two, two bladed props?   Id LOVE to see any pics you had of that.

Brother Bear

Simply stellar work on the scribing and corrections to the kit; perfect execution!

Easy to see you have done all your homework and have a well stocked arsenal of reference materials

Keep 'em coning

Last of the Many.  Different exhaust pipes, spinner. cowling gun opening location.

 

Thank you, Brother Bear.  Lots of measuring, calculating, drawing, scribeing!, and cleaning!  The line-work isn't perfectly perfect, some hiccups here and there, but there comes a point of no returns.  The panel line locations are close enough that I can live with them.  There is still plenty to think about and do.

 

Thank you for looking and liking.

Sincerely,

Mark

Thank you, MARU.  You are a CHAMP!

 

'but seeing it in orange would be great.'

That would be a fun result to have.  I'll think about it, as there is the addition of the cowl scoop with everything else required.

 

Thank you, Rick.  Ugh!  It's a beast!

 

Thank you, Guy.

 

Last photos for awhile until I finish the right side fuselage.

DSCN6037_zpsghrhzgnp.jpg

Sanded an outboard float support to an airfoil shape and molded and cast a couple.  I figured it was easier to cast a match than to sand a match.  Still needs some clean-up.  Inserted a brass rod for structural support.  Over time plain resin would sag with the weight of the float at the end.

 

DSCN6038_zpssk6h2nmh.jpg

Scribed the fillet location, removed the applied fillet, sanded smooth, or tried to, and added fastener locations.  Right or wrong, this is done for now.  It's time to move to the other fuselage half.

 

DSCN6039_zpsh7u2jjmf.jpg

Close-up I.  Hopefully a wash will help that scribed line look better.  'Cause it looks raggety here.  We'll see.

 

DSCN6040_zpso7bje7wg.jpg

Close-up II.  Hmm, I see it's blown out of alignment.  Something for later.

 

DSCN6041_zpscupyow0h.jpg

Close-up III.  Still need to tie in the diagonal panel line to the top-most fuselage panel line, then make an arc from the fuselage panel line to the fuselage glue line. 

 

Thanks for looking and liking!

Sincerely,

Mark

Great rescribing of the panel lines this is really impressive to watch nothing quite like a scratch build or a conversion that bring an aircraft in scale back to life in scale that is.

 

Nice work mate
