Latest progress shots
The camera varies, as I have a Sony Cybershot DSC f717, but it's only 5 megapixels and the other halfs camera is a Pentax thingy that is 10 megapixels and does not like me. I do correct the tone and contrast in photoshop before uploading.
Rear detail almost complete, I've left off the bottom universal link for the moment, as it's in a very delicate position.
3rd attempt at the underneath of the front. Some of the parts I dont have and I've mocked up. There are still some pieces I can't identify.
Panel lines added, all external detail complete, only windows, interior detail and grill to go.
Rear detail complete, I don't know what they used on the door linkages...does anyone know?
she's looking fantastic! Don't suppose i could talk you into finishing mine???
I've been using Sony cybershots for years, currently the HX1, and would'nt use anything else!
Can I talk you into step by step shots while building the interior? and a list of what you used?
It'll be months before I can get back to my Mobile, but your work keeps me looking forward to the day!
Hi all, nearly finished, still some graphics and lots of ageing, The Faller parts were made from evergreen strip, and then molded, i think they're pretty close to the originals
I tried to keep the cockpit interior really rudimentary to try and match the original studio model. I think thats part of the charm of building a studio scale model. The figure is an original pilot figure from the film "Memphis Belle" which I just happened to have lying around in the garage.
I've yet to intall the headlight detail and chrome reflector led lights.
a massing of shado mobiles... the second from left I found a few days ago in the garage and it dates from 1972, it's made from cardboard. This was the third Anderson model I ever made...it's a bit tatty around the edges now. The last two you will all recognise.
