Are you going to use engines from a B-17 for your engines?

Quite possibily yeah, not looked that far into the build if i'm honest.. 

 

 

Regarding the build, it's in full swing. I've been all over the place with building recently, becoming a dad in Sept, health issues and other stuff all got in the way but i've been keeping my feet in with it. 

 

Brought the Tracker into work today and despite being busy, I've managed to get all the surfaces straight and sanded down finally! I will get some photos up later on or over the weekend.

Nice choice as the tracker should look great in 32 scale.

I'm well and truly getting into this....some photos so far. Still needs some more sanding around the tail area (still too thick!), but I think I'm going to cut it off and redo it as one then re-attach it to the fuselage.

It's going to be fun attaching the engine nacelles to the wings.... guess that's the fun part of vacforms!

Little update -

 

I've drawn around the Kinetic kit's internals and some other parts and enlarged on a photocopier to 150%. The bulkhead does need a bit more sanding as I cut them a bit larger so I could sand them to a better shape. But a test fit is good....

Good to see some progress. Using the Kinetic kit is a great idea.
