Cheers Andy, I've not seen you around for a bit, good to have you back ! Not fallen yet, but I'm not feeling confident about the intakes, worst case scenario is I butcher them, and have to use FOD covers, but I have to try and fix them, I'm not going to rush it softly softly catchy monkey lol

Ive glued the intake and taped it In position, just leaving it to dry before I do anymore work on it, I am doing one at a time my logic being if I stuff it up, I will only have to make good the damage on one side ! So I looked for something else to do and so clipped off the engine faces
And glued the "bullets" on

I sprayed them with alclad steel, I didn't prime first but if you lay it on gently the lacquer won't harm the plastic. I'm going to wait until the intakes are done before I do anything more to them, this is just a base coat

That took all of 5 minutes ! So engine cans next, this is what Tamiya give you

And the real ones, lots of detail inside

But luckily Eduard provide a solution in the set

16 of those in each can !

I'm not going to lie, it's been a few years since I did any serious photoetch ! Look at the dust on the bug !

I used photo etch scissors to cut the parts from the frame and started the bend of in the bug. I put a tiny dot of loctite gel on the part with a cocktail stick and pressed it down with tweezers

Same story to fit them inside the can, 2 down 14 to go on this one !

Eduard don't give you any spares either ! Edit : you get one spare for each can, I just found it stuck to the back of my arm lol !

And after an hour the first can is done !

I found bending the little tab around the lip the hardest part, thankfully I had no dramas other than gluing a cocktail stick to my lip !
Top tip don't put the glue end in your mouth when you need to free up a hand lol !
I have got to do all this again on the other one, but intakes first

The piece at the back does need to come off ! A dry fit showed that I won't be able to get inside them to fill and sand properly

I managed to get it out without any damage to the fuselage, I must admit I was nervous cutting it lol !

Here it is glued to the rest of the intake

Hopefully these pictures will show a bit clearer what I'm trying to achieve, the gap at the top will be glued once the bit I just cut and glued has dried

Once it's all glued together this part will be easy to make seamless

Blending it into this part however will be a bit of a job !

And once it's glued to the fuselage it will hide all of my cutting

And to end a long day at the bench, I decided to put the etch in the other can

And that's about it for day one, not a massive amount done ! But the state of the intakes did throw me off a bit this morning, but I'm quietly confident it will work, so tomorrow I will cut the other side, that way I'll be able to fill and sand them as a pair

Thanks for looking in

Pete

Nice work! In 1/32 scale work you do really matters. In this stage it's nice that you can choose what part you can do next, one burner can at time.. there are some work in intakes too!

Yes they make a big difference to the insides, I wish I had painted inside the cans before I added it though as the colour of the etch looks very much like the real thing

Thank you mate ! 1/32 is nice for details, but not so good for storage or display lol ! The intakes are going to be a pain, but better to get them away at the beginning. I really don't know what the kit designer was smoking when he came up with these intakes lol

Great start Pete those cans look fantastic, just a thought on the intakes could they be reproduced in aluminium sheet, say something about the gauge of take away foil trays, and you may get the stressed aluminium appearance of the real thing. I might try this on the 1/72 F4  I am going to build.
Good luck with the rest mate will be following with great interest.

Thanks Gary, the etch really makes a difference on these. I've got some thin plastic card that I will line the front of the intake with so it should reduce the filling a bit, the foil is a great idea though.

LOL, lawn cuttings obviously [smile]

anyhow I like the tin foil idea for the intakes


I can't help but wonder how much the kit with all the extras came to cost wise thus far and how much extra would the resin intakes be for this ?

exhausts looking good already, i wonder if you use something to undo the glue so you can paul them out and paint the plastic and then refit them again ?? big ask perhaps...I wonder if ink might work in this scenerio and wipe the etch clean after as the cloth probably wouldn't touch the plastic on the inside of the exhaust nozzles, crap idea ? I am not sure, but just a thought [smile]

anyhow, haven't you finished it yet ???? [biggrin]
