Those moulded gear legs look like the Skybirds86 Maritn Baker MB5.  ;D

An interesting technique indeed.
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

That is EXACTLY what inspired me to do it that way! ;D

Patiently "nibbled" at the sprues with side cutters, took a long time...


Your lego building jigs always impress me.  I must dig some out and have a go myself.


Do so! I'll not stop using lego, easiest way to get things where I want them to be. :thumbsup:

Quick Fockan update, it's the only model I have had time to work on lately, the following pic's are only 10 min old and the glue & filler is still setting. :rolleyes:

Apologies for the bad quality pic's, only have a cheap quality camera to work with still...

Like so:

I am happy enough with how the moulded gear turned out but for various reasons I used the original Stuka gear,now I have them to use down the track along with the knowledge of how to do them again with improvements. :thumbsup:

Oh, and free of the jig just now it is more than strong enough as is not dry to stand on its own legs. Engine tacked in place and canopy only sitting on for pic.



And how it looks on the underside before being cleaned up.

Super cool, bud. Coming together like a set of butt cheeks!  ;D


This is a neat project, for sure. Looks like "all the malarkey" that went onto bottom turned out great... well blended 'n all'at.  :mellow: :mellow:

Taking a few mental notes here for when I get around to taking on a more involved level of scratch building.

Looking good Brad F.

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

Thanks. :thumbsup:

Slow progress, but progress nontheless.
All the "malarkey" is still being worked on. ;D

There we go!!  Looking more refined being all a solid color. Primer I'm assuming.

Back to the malarkey at hand. . .. .  :laugh: :police:

AYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY  ..... what's happ'nin'  cap'n?!?

Lot's of issues & drama but nothing to do with modelling so they can stay unmentioned :angry:

When I can actually start models again I want to start here: I've noted some very close similarities between the Percival Provost and CAC Winjeel so why not have a Jet Provost done up as a Jet Winjeel for the RAAF instead of the Macchi MB.326 for jet training. Not the easiest subjects to find kits of but I will be on the lookout for some soon to go with this idea, a Provost, a Winjeel & 2 X Jet Provost's should look good grouped together in RAF & RAAF colours I think.

RL "seems" to be easing off, with a little luck I "may" even be able to build something soon.  :blink:

Let's hope it continues to ease off for you.  :thumbsup:
