got the stuff you've seen painted up and started working on the HVAC pipes (at least that's kinda what they look like)

i'll put up a quick pic when I get in from Work.

I'm having to do a bit then paint it then do a bit more as the more I add around the walls and roof, the less access I get for painting etc.

as promised, a couple of snaps of the progress so far.

got a splash of paint on and now i'm working on the pipes and wires.

putting a wash on this paintwork at this stage as well coz of my potential access issue once the pipes etc are in place.DSC_0033.jpg

Hi guys, Sorry progress has been a bit slow of late but I’ve had a fairly busy few weeks. Just to bring you all up to speed on the build, I started off with the internal piping and wiring with the oxygen ducting which looks kind of like AC ducting. It has some soft coverings that are silver coloured held on with jubilee clips.

DSC_0037.jpg

This was done with some styrene rod with some tamiya tape to give it the soft covering look. One piece was spiralled around the linking pipe to give an A ducting look to the pipe. Some small pieces of 0.25 lead wire were then wrapped around to represent the jubilee clips. This sub assembly was then painted with Mr Metal colour stainless steel for the soft covered area and AK Extreme metal aluminium for the ends. Then this was glued into place. Another large pipe was bent up from styrene rod with tape applied where necessary to represent joints.

Next I added in some wiring and smaller pipes with 0.25 and 0.5mm solder wire. I got this in 100g rolls really cheap off Ebay (compared to the lead wire for modelling) I needed it to be longer than what already had in lead wire for it to run the length of the fuselage on this beast. Workd like a charm. There is a junction box on the roof of the rear cabin with wires coming out of either side that stands out a little more than others when you look in so I did them first, painted them up and fitted as another sub assembly, then just threw in another few wires etc to fill in the gaps.

Taking a break from the scratch building, I started taking on the raised panel lines with the old scribing tools. And also cut out the flaps to reposition them in the down position as it would be with the rotors in the ‘going up’ position.

I put a few drops of styrene filler in the front wheel well to cover up the EPMs which worked quite nicely. And I got the rear tail section glued together.

Finally I got the resin MG put together ready to start on the ramp mount for it.

As you can probably tell I’ve been doing little bits all over the model just to break up the monotony a little as I was starting to get a little bit bogged down with the interior. Close to getting the 2 fuselage halves together now though.

This interior is fantastic. I just wired a bit of wheel well and underneath the wing and it took me forever. Very well done job.

Thanks Joe,

There's some decent viewing access luckily thanks to the big ramp at the back and the top half of the front door being open.  Might need a torch to see all of it though. [smile]

Yea but it will be worth it you've got a championship build here in my honest opinion.

Thanks guys, A quick update before the England-Wales match starts. I got the interior finished off with a few little embellishments in the form of fire extinguishers and an air/hydraulic tank near the back door.

DSC_0057.jpg

DSC_0058.jpg

Then zipped the fuselage halves together. I also put the tail section on and fitted the canopy with some PVA.

DSC_0053.jpg

Most of the big flat areas went together well but there were a couple of big steps around the front wheel well and one towards the tail. A good bit of green putty and some sanding later and we get to where I remembered to take photos. [rolleyes]

 I masked up the canopy with some thin pinstriping tape and Vallejo liquid mask, then sprayed the whole area with black stinylrez primer to see were I was at with the seam lines.

DSC_0059.jpg

A bit more filling and sanding needed me thinks. I’ve also been working on the dropped flaps. I got a bit of thin styrene sheet glued to the top of the flap and then attached to the wing then glued the bottom edge of the flap to the wing and taped it in position while it dried. Just a couple of gaps to fill up now and a bit of scribing.

Now.. C’mon England!! [biggrin]
