I started this project back in June and hoped to have this done in about 3 months ..........
ok right who am I trying to kid.
Here we are 6 months down the line and at least now I do have something to show for all the work.
I'm not posting every little step but if any one has any questions I'll do my best to answer and add any photo's I have.
So here's the start a few months ago.
Skip ahead a few days and here's the mold for the fuselage.
and the dog house
The first fuselage came out of the mold a week or two back and here's how it looks at the moment.
Chris (helijenks) has been working his magic and drawn up about 50 different scale parts and accessories for me (thats the white bits on the fuselage) and having spent years scratch building bits for my Aircrane I'm still in shock as to how quickly you can add fantastic detail with printed parts.
Here's a close up of the undercarriage leg, this is a printed cover which fits over the aluminium u/c leg. The winglets that cover the aluminium spar are being molded this week,
The door steps
and with a coat of primer, the detail really stands out.
