When the warp fairies put the kibosh on my attempt to join in the Tornado build I started this.

Because what everyone needs is a carrier capable bizjet.

I've got the cockpit well under way, have painted the pilot and today cut some windows for the passenger compartment.

Worthy replacement for the VA-3B, I like it. :thumbsup:
I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.

Nice. Turboprops (e .g. from an Hawkeye?) would be an option, too?

Sorry I don't recognize the source: is this a Lockheed S-3 Viking in which you cut windows for passengers inside? (that would be great!) ;D

Yes Tophe.  It is indeed a Lockheed S-3 Viking.  It's the Revell (formerly Hasegawa) kit.
When surplus Vikings are re-purposed by zenrat industries they become ziking Ragnars.

Today I extended the door opening (boxing it in internally), added a floor & bulkhead and started scratchbuilding some passenger seats.  I'll probably make the windows from white glue so not too much will be seen through them but I would like the blurred shapes to have the correct outline.
Of course, if I get carried away with the interior i'll have to cut windows from clear.
Pilot is from the Airfix Stratos IV.

Progress is happening.
I have painted the interior, fitted the seats, fitted some windows (cut from 1mm clear sheet - not sure what exactly it is or where it came from but it glues OK with Revell Contacta) and closed the fuselage up.
Pic from before I did the last (obviously  :rolleyes:).

Seats are a bit crude but even with windows cut from clear you can't see much more than the backs anyway.

It could be kinda like a Tornado if it had swing-wings....

Also, how is the pilot going to be comfortable in that seating position when she's used to one more like a racing motorbike?

She's been to a chiropractor for her neck and is much happier now she gets a proper seat and isn't positioned as if she is about to be violated.

Fit of the fuselage halves isn't brilliant but that is prolly down to the f**king about with them i've been doing adding an interior.  The worst mismatch is on the underside where the bomb bays are.  This is a Good Thing as I was going to fill the engraved bomb bay detail anyway.
I've test fitted the wings and it looks like their fit is pretty good.

Canopy masked and attached I decided to slot the wings and tails on so I could do a balance test.  Weight was needed.
The component between the handles of the sprue cutters should have been attached to one fuselage half before they were closed.
Oops.
Luckilly there was a gaping hole behind the undercarriage bay through which I could insert it.

The fit of the part I left off (arrestor hook bay), wings, nose gear bay and the panel behind the undercarriage are, once slight flash is trimmed, very good and minimal or no filler will be needed on them.

I'm at the fuselage PSR stage.  This is complicated by the fact i've sanded back the windows, filled around them and will be polishing them.
Canopy fit isn't all it could be so I cut my own canopy mask and have blended the edges.  I probalbly shouldn't have peeled one corner off to check the cockpit was dust free as it won't now stick back down.
A "proper" canopy mask is on its way.

Only just seen this Fred, I am liking what you are doing to the s-3. I am wondering if one could be stretched a bit also if being flown from land

I don't think stretching one would be simple due to the cross section of the fuselage not being constant.
You'd need two kits.
However, if you had two kits then making it a 4 engined aircraft would be a doddle.

This is awaiting the arrival of a canopy mask.
