Tigger (ID Models) Ki-45 Nick Vac - DONE !!!!!

Recommended Posts

Yup - good group build topic.... I'm in. Time to  finish this one.

 

A 'Anything but out of the box group build' 'survivor'

 

This is how it looks today

Although I did post something 3-4 months ago a build time of over 3 years make me declare this as on the shelf of doom...

Allright... I'm not dead. I am still working on this one from time to time. Gotta get it finished before the ZM Ki-45.

 

Anyway I'm sanding away on the exterior - I really really really loathe sanding. For that simple reason I will never do a vac again.

I THINK this is the last bit on the wing/fuselage/nacelle sanding odyssey..

 

Meanwhile I've gotten some brass tubing and I am planning how to do the main gear. This is the first sketch, out of scale and proportions - simply to show the parts and to be able to note down the dimensions as I nail them down.

Holy s*** they want 40 USD / month - they've gotta be crazy

 

Anyone know of a good alternative ?

 

I use Imgur now. Much easier, no ads that tie everything up either.

Ok back on track

 

I spent the day working on the gear, building it from a couple of copper pipes and rods. Feel allright with this, although it needs to be detailed a bit with some styrene. The retraction arms etc will be in styrene, only this one I wanted in copper because of the strength. Fun to try something new
