Migrating from “Work in Progress – Aircraft”
This was started in February and is now moved here
I have to admit that nothing has happened with this one in almost 3 months, but with the limit of one year on this GB, it should be an inspiration to get it done!
Just a quick round of what has happened so far;
I started with installing the windows, as I wanted to sand them flush
Here you have a comparison of the sanded and un-sanded versions
I made a cabin full of very basic chairs, adding a floor and airstair
Painted the lot and by the way, cut out the cockpit/cabin door.
The nosecone had a lot of lead to balance the plane
Some later removed as it was overweight
I corrected the front to take a vac-formed homemade windscreen
And that made me come to a screeching halt!
I have no experience in making vac-formed things, and most likely I will try to make a piece of glass from a heated Perspex that is pulled down over the mold.
The finished plane will be made as a Greenlandair example with the aid of some LN-decals – a few pictures of it;
The last two being when it had Greenlandair Charter titles – the decalsheet is for the GRØNLANDSFLY version.
The original version of this build on iModeler is to be found via this link https://imodeler.com/groups/work-in-progress-aircraft/forum/topic/dhc6-300-oy-pof-gronlandsfly-revell-1-72/
Hopefully it will now move back to the workbench – time will tell!
