I made cardboard stencils for the Hotwire, and made them from my hand drawn Interceptor plans.

They look great... how do you sand expanded polystyrene?
Without seeing your interceptor bodies I'd have thought I would just shred into little balls!

How do you sand polystyrene you ask?. . . . Very carefully! Lol

You need to use a 200+ grit sand block or flex pad.

Thanks for the kind words Bern!

I've now made the two Interceptor's radar guided Missiles and rear main engine portions and mocked them up to the interceptor's fuse.

Ohh I also forgot to mention these two Interceptor's are 18.5 inches Long.

And I have the cloak device activated on the second interceptor which is right next to the one you can see. . . . . Ohh wait, sorry that's my klingon bird of prey with the cloaking device. . Lol

I'm now coating the Interceptor's Bodies with Ureshell resin in order to give a hard paint-able surface.
