Same colours as the alpha I'm stuffing together right now. 'Cept for being #20 rather than 23
Alright............ ummmm what scale are we talking about Shrike.......... 1/33 or 1/48?
1/33 would go nicely with DN's Peashooter!:twisted: But to be truthful I'm not really worried about the scale.............. unless it something Ray dosen't have to re-scale to build.:grin:
That's ok John, I don't mind doing my own rescaling. I just lighten my colors
a little and print away. Also, I found that if I do find the odd bit in 1/144, most of the time I have to resize anyway for it to be accurate. And, it is fun being one of the minority in building scales. But, I just pushed 44, and am have lost about 50% of vision in my right eye, it is getting more difficult to build small. I may be required to (heaven forgive me) jump all the way up to 1/100!
1/32 scale, as is the B-9. It's a project that I started about 4 years ago, screwed up a few things in the files, got sidetracked, et cetera, et cetera.
I've got all the research I could want. I have the Westburg drawings and literally every known drawing published.
This weekend I'm going to finish tossing the old version together and make a concerted effort to fix the most obvious problems and have something buildable.
Sounds good to me............ got plenty of paper, ink and blades!:grin:
I might even have to find some of that silk thread Eric and Gil been talking about for the flying wires!
Well, I've been working on it for a few weeks. What does everybody think?
This is designed to Fiddlersgreen standards, and is in the rough stages.
The models looks very good so far.
I want to see one more detailed picture of the nose :twisted:.
I'm interested in this plane because was used in Argentine Air Force.
By the way, do you find a good 3d view of this plane with cross sections?
That looks great!
Hey simple is easy and then you can always improve on it. You gotta walk before you run a marathon!:roll:
Post some more pics!
Man that looks awesome! Its jumping right to the top of the build pile as soon as it hits the Magic Keys!
Looks good to me - I better get crackin' on the A-8 and B-9 redraws
I found a good 3 view, but no cross sections. Had to go off of images, memory of seeing the real thing, and imagination.
Here's the nose.
Thanks !!! Very nice. I think you are doing a great job with only imagination.
