Wow another BIG TB2 - it looks great in the primer - wonder what it would have looked like if they had picked that instead of green? it is a sort of construction truck of sorts

Default Update

Small update…reasonably small anyway..

Casting the hydraulic leg blisters



blisters attached and blending process



Smoothed out





Tail vent master to be cast in resin..





Needs trimming to fit, cast vent pieces



Tubes cut for legs..if this does not work then will turn them into pan pipes. Used whatever around the house – copper pipe offcuts, curtain rail poles and aluminium leftovers



Assembled and glued



Test fit



Legs will need trimming down, as it needs to sit just above pod door….but for now..



Assembling the fins to elevator box and adding rear rocket tubes





Adding side intakes – fashioned from cable trunking laminated with plasticard and sanded to shape.







Side booms covered in plastic curved to shape and then fillered



Strut footpad master – too big will redo this so its smaller….



Dry fit thus far…..next windows….



not happy with footpads as they are too large,,,.makes TB2 look like a puppy





You may not be able to see it but there is lining on the inside of the pod ready for rib detail and greeblie parts…not sure which pod to make yet.

Default Beautiful, even at this stage......

I love watching this process, it's fascinating to see what raw materials have been used and how they've all been assembled. The legs are just great. And look how far you've got with her as well, a real development.

She's going to look wonderful. Keep delighting us with your pictures and progress.

Kindest regards

Patrick

Default Portals To The Soul...

Those windows are just dazzling - wonderful close-ups of them, sleek and clean, very deco!

Plan to slip anything in behind them?

Thanks. windows are pretty dark so not much to see. Haven't decided if I'll put in a cockpit front office yet, original never had one I think.

Took another look at pics of those landing-leg tubes; clever sourcing, for them!



"Pan-pipe" legs, has a nice ring to it; good reference name, hmm?...
