Surprise

Well Sky 1 is back ,all moulded and what a fantastic job , as you can see its all in one piece apart from the nose and the rocket tubes , a couple of smalls just to give the modeller something to do .
.

There's hardly any prep work to remove any flash left over from moulding , so as soon as the pattern for Eds car is finished i'll be staight on this .

The Diver section will be moulded next yr , that gives me time to assemble and paint Sky1 .

more very soon , so watch

Hi Guys

Back from the depths of wall papering , and in need of some scratch building .


Well Eds car is nearly ready for moulding , and as i mentioned last time , SKY1 was next on my hit list to finish off.


This has been a long build , but now all the moulding is finished its a case of putting the model together , so with that in mind here's todays work load .

The nose section ive added a rear wall , 4 bolts are glassed inside, and the nose has been attached to the main body , the Rear section has also been attached , all gaps have been filled with p38 filler , and now i need to cut out a small panel underside to gain access to the cockpit area , the 4 bolts sticking though from the nose cone can then be tightened up from inside .

I'll leave all the interia till last , next job rockett tubes .
More soon

Hi Guys

Weapon rocket pods assembled and fitted to the uderside wing slots .

I must admit i could have used a another pair of hands here trying to keep everything parallel to the main fusalge , using a large set square , with the model resting on a large wooden box the pods were offered up to the model until they were parallel and then tacked glued .

Resin was then poured around the joints , and now its a case of p38 car filler and sanding .

Here's the up todate photo's along with some photo's of the other ufo hardware .

Just in time for you guys to have a good read over the week end .

Hi Guys

Managed to do a little bit more this morning on SKY1 , its getting chilly out there .

The top fin detail parts have been firmly glued in place , i also scratch the behind , so the glue has something to bite into , the same for the detail part im going to glue .

I have also cut an opening beneath the cockpit area , so i can start the detail inside as well .

more soon

Hi Guys

Here's a look at SKY 1 latest update , over the last couple of days ive been adding the main fusalage detail, its taken a little time as ive had to cast some parts up as ive gone along.

There's a couple of domes left to glue to the wings ,and then the large strips that are above the rocket pods that are glued to the top side of the wings .

Main windows next , sanding and then its the interia i might even give it a light spray in plastic primmer .

More soon
