    I'm continuing with the project.

    Now I have done rear part and as you can see the rudder and elevators are rotating. I have done clear photo review of my method to design and build rotating elements - may be you'll be interested to take a look on it. The direct link is:

    Best regards

    I'm so excited about this new direction you've taken in your designs.
    And I'm so glad you've chosen the SB2C-3 HellDiver as the subject.
    No rush, but when do you think it will be ready for delivery?
    As I said no rush I'm enjoying the pictures!

    Best Regards,

    … And now some pictures of the turret. I think the detailing is very good for scale 1:48.
    And for those who like the finger’s play there is possibility turret be made with bi-directional motion (it’s shown on the last pic).
    I hope you’ll like it, but trust me it isn’t so easy to build ))

    - the different ways of mounting the main gear
    - variant of wing with open flaps

    Kancho that looks AWESOME! I look forward to your finished model more and more with each update.

    One question, will you be able to move the gears or do you have to choose to glue them up or down?

    Keep up the excellent work my friend.

    No, the gear can't be moved and it is for the supports and lids . The gear can be hard mounted in open or hidden position.
    I hope about week and half and the model will be in sale.

    I'm glad you like it.

    I'm glad you like it!
    I like it too ;).

    And not - the model isn't yet in sale - I need another some day to put some callouts, cover page and mainly - to design html presentation page for process of build (diagram like with Hs-129 and ). B.t.w. I have done photo session of whole process of build and on every detail. I think this one way of presentation - with diagrams, many photos and without many words - is beter for me (For main bad english) and for you.

    And the next model - some words in advence. This one is one of my favorites. I have leaved She to be my first work in scale 1:33. But with every new design I understand 1:48 is my loved scale. I really loke how the SB2C is coming out and I think I'm redy now to design She.

    So the key word for the next one is FrogFoot

    Despite the fact that it does not have Hinomarus, it is an awsome model [​IMG]
    Your models are designed on such a level that it really does not matter if it is 1:48 scale since you can enlarge them to 1:33 without any problems with the look or fit of parts.

    And if I'm not mistaken, your next model will be Su-25 [​IMG]
