Default Airfix Eagle Transporter accurizing?

Hey guys,
When attempting to accurize an airfix eagle some years ago, I cut away the solid portions of the cages and sanded them to 3/4 round only to have the tubework looking barely passable from straight on but horrible from any other angle.
I have 3 unopened fundimesion eagles, 4 poorly assembled monogram issues and the one airfix to work with. I was wondering what suggestions you all might have as to combat this problem. I figure if I went to full round on the tubing it would become to thin after correcting for the flat inside. Also any suggestions on how to make the cm front cage connection look better would be appreciated.
Thanks

Default Same Question, Me Thinks

I'm new here too - forgive me if I'm asking a question(s) that have been answered before. Point me to the thread and I'll soak it up....

I'm seeking a "tweaks list" for working with the AMT/ERTL (Airfix?) Eagle Transporter too. I have some references, but don't know which are faithful to the studio model(s) and show references. Likewise in modeling the Eagle Transporter.

If there isn't a "tweaks list" - it sure would be welcomed!

I could have sworn eimb1999 posted a few images here about accurizing... It might have been lost when the forum went down.

This is the pic I posted before that shows how my old Authentication kit was made. They are the instructions that went along with the text. Studying these photos may help you...

Heh heh - thanks for posting the link over at Armorama! Man, I never thought I'd find a Forum dedicated to my favorite space/sci-fi vehicle.

Armed with these tidbits of info and having confidence instilled after seeing a "certain shipyards" works, I believe I can go forth and make a decent rendering. My slow season is almost upon which is perfect timimng
