SNCASE SE. 2560 done! Pic page2
« on: March 02, 2020, 03:04:15 pm »
Build was started by covering the missing engines with styrene sheet and putty. While the putty was curing the cockpit (Pavla Alphajet set) was painted. later the correct place for the cockpit was decided and a cavity was made to take the cockpit tub. A little putty was needed to get the fill the old cockpit of the P6M.
The engine (taken from a matchbox Buccaneer) was puttied. The wheel wells really took a lot putty, should have filled it with plasticard and  putty it over. :banghead:

Although it's looking crude at the moment with some sanding it'll become an elegant looking plane me thinks...

Good start - it looks typically French; in other words stylish but slightly bizarre, with apparently random complications for no other reason than "being different".

Here among what-ifers, "being different" is a joke, usual and pleasant I think.
For industrial companies, "being different" may be a bad way to avoid paying Copyright… (I even learned that at French university…)

I presume you will be crafting ring form tail surfaces with the jet efflux passing through the centre?

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

I like where this is going!  :wub:

Must, then, my projects bend to the iron yoke of a mechanical system? Is my soaring spirit to be chained down to the snail's pace of matter?

After a major putty job, hours and hours of curing and sanding, it's time for an update:

The cockpit tub is in and the canopy is dry fitted to check the fit:
IMG_20200306_112713789 by Buddy Holly, on Flickr

Upperside of the jet pod still needed some putty, The hump behind the canopy is to be sanded lower to get a more pleasing contour:

Exhaust a la Atar 9c is borrowed from an Super mystere. Tails are also on:

Update time!

The cockpit was painted and after million times testfitting it was glued in.

Testfitted the engine pod as well. The exhaust is finished with a small tunnel and a resin afterburner face.

First thing is to finish the engine pod, get the seats in and put the canopy on.

TIME FOR AN UPDATE!

Some time passed and all was assembled. Then disassembled the enginepod as the aft empennage was not symetrical. So found a nice replacement in the aft fuselage of an ancient frog Hunter (it was inaccurate anyway ;-)) and grafted it on. Then some PSR.........and some more. Then some polishing and a dash of paint.

The result:

Still some touch-ups have to be made before it's finished.

That looks SO good now it's all one colour.  :thumbsup:
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)
