Armstrong Whitworth Artemis NF1

(1/8) > >>

Ok, another entry....hopefully a quick one.... :banghead:

This is the start. A 1/200 XB-35 and a left-over 1/72 Vampire ( Revell boxing):

Then the vampires fuselage was cut to accept the wings and engines were cut from a Matchbox Meteor-without-canopy. Yes, it's going to be a two seater....

Then after some cutting, gluing and first PSR-ing this imitation of Gonzo was created.

The putty over the radome will be sanded smooth to fit the nose cone, the vampire's gunbay will be put in it's original place, fairing behind the canopy will be made and last but not least: the wings will be cut to accept the engines a la Armstong Whitworth's AW 52 prototype. Lots to do!

Enjoy your modelling!

Interesting.  I was hoping for propellers but jets are OK too.  A very long wingspan though.   :thumbsup:

You make it look so easy.

From the first photo with the glass in shadow, I thought you had it on floats!!!
