    I'm busy completing the final version of the model and the instructions.
    I would like verify the amount of work i'm collecting for the release and here some statistics:

    Page A - (Bomb Body) 15 parts
    Page B - (Bomb Tail) 85 parts
    Page C - (Trailer p.01) 62 parts
    Page D - (Trailer p.02) 27 parts
    Page E - (Jigs & Orther) 14 parts
    Page F - (Cradle) 3 parts
    Page T - (Tabs) 14 parts
    Page W - (Wheels) 24x4=96 parts

    Total 15+85+62+27+14+3+14+96=316 parts

    8+3= 11 pages of parts
    6 assembly diagrams
    9 pages of instructions

    Here below a sintetic view of the instructions pages, all in one


    and the comparison between the real one and my model.


    Considering that I had one drawing and some picture, I think that the final result is satisfactory, but I have still to work on the graphic side. :confused: Sure on the next project . ;)

    Soon the announce.

    Best, Nando :)

    Looks beautiful, considering the subject matter. Nice work.

    And here in my avatar pic I'm beneath "Bock's Car".
  3. Nando, this is a superb build and a very good design. The instructions seem to be very detailed, which is nice. I'm sure you will sell many of this because it has very good quality. Congratulations on the completion of this project. You made it great!

    Ok, I can confirm that my model of the Fat Man bomb is available at ecardmodels site.
    Here a picture of my little museum of the dawn of the atomic era.


    Best regards, Nando :wave:

    So that anyone with any questions knows this , Nando's extensive build and design thread here: http://www.zealot.com/forum/showthread.php?t=173307 has earned him the privilege of posting where he is offering his model at. No one may post a link to a commercial site unless it is done with a design, and or a build thread and the link, last, no exceptions.

    Nando, this model is ready for prime time! Good luck, Bueno Suerte. I would suggest the use of balsa wood at any weak point. :)
