Well, made a rudimentary start on the old girl.
First off, any thoughts of a nice quick build disappeared. This is, unbelievably, the best dry fit of the fuselage halves. Mr. Milliput is gonna have a heart attack when he checks his shares this week.
The plan is to detail a little inside the entry, couple of seats, stretcher bunks, etc.
I made some quick bulkheads and will probably stick in a few stringers. Really, I just want to get to the exterior with this and put the main effort into painting.
Next up I’ll make some scratch exhaust outlets; these are massively over scale and under detailed.
It has to be said, this is fun. Love these old kits…reminds me of that old saying, ‘if only I knew what I know now when I was young…’ You can see the kit’s DNA through the color of the plastic, the HUGE amounts of flash, and injection marks.
Well, started cutting and sawing her now…
