"[yes, they are theoretically undersized--sorry] and the engine nozzle on the back???"


I don't think so at all,
look at the size of the nozzles on a Harrier compared to it's huge
fuselage or the exhaust nozzles on sports jets like the BD5 which was tiny [smile]

They look about right to me bud, if they were electric fans then yes, way too small
but add fuel and heat and the nozzles and intakes don't need to be large at all.
So all that is looking very plausible thus far [thumb] [smile]

It's nice to know that the pilot is still safe in case of engine break.. I'll like the thinking of all of those parts, safety is important!

Now that project reminds something like Mad Max, but when it gets paint I'll think my opinion changes.

Thank you gentlemen. I always seem to begin with just an idea of something that has an interesting look, then eventually start thinking about "How does that function?" or "what is that". this project is not really tight with the function vs form idea, but at least kind of hints at it.

Temps up locally today and heat was on at the Storage Facility---much more bearable atmosphere and I got a lot of work done. I believe the pictures will tell most of the story?

one "trick" I did not show? the circles on the sides of the Mercury were made with a regular "leather punch" tool. When you have access to both sides of the styrene [or any material], you can clamp it in the tool and then toggle the styrene [material] back and forth to create a perfect circular panel line. the punch will make about 6 sizes of scribing or punching. On one of the scribed circles, I took the punch, and keeping it the same size as the scribing, punched a piece of styrene sheet, then glued that "cut out" [punched] circle over the scribed area to make it stand off the body of the car. Its a fun tool to use to make circles. I also have a 1MM punch from the hobby store.



I hope someone explains to the pilot about the cockpit before he.....................................oops, too late!!!





Sort of an overview of the main POD engine design and parts. LOTS to add of course. The next picture puts it all together......almost. I at least got core components together. I was worried abut the Plexiglas rod trick and getting the "tanks" [from a Phantom F4] spaced correctly inside the outer jackets of the engine. WHEW!







NO, NOT CANNONS or any kind of gun jutting out the front of the Mercury. The cables and conduit coming from the headlamp openings will need some kind of "support" since they take a LOT of strain. There will be an armature under the cables to help support them, thus some styrene "tubing" is the start of those armatures.

Please note :that I have closed the front wheel wells and the remainder of the windows.

Also note that the blueish color of the "plasma flow" was created in Photo Shop. I hope to get it that color or very close using Tamiya "Clear Blue" paint.

Wow Ted !
you really are building up a head of steam now !
You're like a freight train with the moment you're building up [smile]

You finishing this model is no longer in doubt,
the question really is what are you gonna build for a second GB entry after this one is finished next week ? [biggrin]

Anyhow, liking the inventiveness of the energy coupling and the engines are shaping up nice too hey [smile]

Very impressive attention to detail Ted! And the plasma stream... genius :-). This is going to look awesome!!! Keep the momentum, looks like you're in the zone.

yeah what Fabian said ! [biggrin]

Really enjoying the pace of this build [thumb]

with inertia like this you will be able to steam through Nigel's SIG build, the Corsair F4-U /diorama, the Phantom F4 and the P-38 !! [biggrin]

And another thing [biggrin]
When you first suggested the pope mobile turret cockpit idea I hated it, sorry but a true story [biggrin]
But I am won over now that I can see your vision coming together so quickly, it's definitely beginning to acquire that Mad Max vibe now [smile]

Fabian, Paul---thanks for the kind comments. I am really enjoying this project, I guess it sort of reflects some of my history with Mixed Media art??


More Bench time at UNIT10 today. I think the pictures will explain the work best:



When the glue is rock hard, trimming and sanding will finish it off.



various cabling and wires added







that's all for today. Primary focus will now be the engines. LOTS to add.
