But I will soon have to tackle the stunt of trying to apply DC-8 decals onto a 727 fuselage, there's no way around... :-\


An airliner modelling JMN would complain that windows will be the wrong size and shape, but there aren't any of THEM here.  ;D ;) :thumbsup:

Not much new to show here - spent yesterday with small stuff like painting the wheels and mounting the struts to the fuselage, as well as more paint preparations like a black ink wash for the the many engraved flaps on the wings. Also did some post-shading of fuselage panels with Humbrol Polished Aluminum metallizer.

Thanks ericr, you know: even if I don't pay a ericr-Copyright, this model is very inspired by your collection "airplanes/animal/machines/tools mixes", so inspiring!

How tall is it please?

The model is scale 1:500 - so as the "oriignal" is 60 meters in diameter, the model is 12 cm in size.

Before leaving to my summer vacation next week, here is the last update for a while:

All six decks are done now - a few smaller detail work is still required but I will do that when I put the decks together:



A lot of Tamiya tape is holding everything together now:



All six decks seperated - I only painted those parts that are later visible:



And starting on deck 1 - a bit of putty&sanding is required as this had a lot support structure below it when printing. When putting the decks together, some putty&sanding will also be required to make the gap between the decks invisible:

Searching for 3D models on Thingiverse, I found the HMS Thunderchild (from War of the Worlds), so I thought "cool, want to make it". But taking a closer look, this ship was more or less a SMS Siegfrid class battleship, so I decided to make it as such.

Pinted in scale 1:700 (waterline only), with the Aycubic Mega FDM printer, it printed quite good, however, some smaller parts did not do so well. Therefore I printed a few parts - like the smaller guns with the anycubic Photon SLA printer - which can produce a much  more detailed output. At the time when I printed the complete ship, I did not had the SLA printer so I could not use it.

The model was enhanced with a few parts from the spare part box for the masts, I also replaced the 3D printed boats with some from the spare parts as well. The crew is PE as usual.

Zooming into the model, it looks a bit messy, but from the normal viewing distacs, its quite good.





The following 3D-Models were used:
