The nice thing about all these hours of work is that the results will only be excellent.

Excellent work on the scribing and riveting. Depending on what the group build is I might be putting myself through the same thing (just in 1/48 instead of a big 1/32). Looking forward to more.

Thanks Kenny, yeah I'm hoping your suggestion gets through, I think it will. And one thing I won't be doing in the GB is re-scribing and riveting (at this level anyway.) [smile]

Yeah I told myself that I would make sure to not get another kit with raised panel lines after I rescribed (didn't really feel like I could handle re-riveting at the time). Then I went and bought a bomber that I would have to do that on [crazy]. Should still be a fun GB. The scribing and riveting work you're doing on this is inspirational. If I ever find myself complaining about scribing I can now tell myself "at least it's not a 1/32 f-14" [cool].

Thanks Kenny, comments like that and from others inspire me to give it a good crack too. I have no doubt the level I'm attempting is way above my experience. But I'm going to attempt it because I think I can do it. And if I can pull it off to the level I think I can, then I can put myself comfortably in present company. [smile]
The level of work that comes from this site is top-notch.
And I just want to get some "runs on the board".

I'm back on the top now, this is going along a lot quicker than underneath now all the R&D is done, so I should have it finished in a week or so. Good timing as I'm expecting to order all the AM stuff for this first week of Feb, then I can start, in earnest, on the actual build.
I won't post too many more rivet/rescribe shots as to avoid putting my audience to sleep, but I thought you might like to see a big blank spot sorted out with some rivets. It's quick and easy and makes a nice bit of detail in the end, I hope. [smile]

The blank area near the engine exhausts need some attention.


Some lines drawn using my little set square against the exhausts is close enough.


Rivets in place.


Thanks for looking.

Cheers Mike, it's not even testing my patience any more. Nearly finished the seamlines on the back half (rivets are already placed), found a fantastic way of cleaning up the panel lines. It's quick and you don't damage the plastic if you slip, it makes the panel line look like it was moulded, almost. I use a toothpick. Perfect tool for the job. [smile]
So that's the riveting and the scribing methods sorted now. It helps when you do a job this big, it enables the engineering side of the mind to kick in and go "how can I do this better?" I won't have any hesitation in doing either job again. [smile]

I don't believe it! Got a big day in today on the bench, if I can get the same amount of time tomorrow, the scribing and riveting will be done!! [biggrin]
Hoobloodyray!


I managed to get a shot of the top rear piece before I sanded it. You can probably see the riveting a little clearer on this one. It's a bit bumpier. lol

Haha, thanks Mike, sorry for the repeated shots of the same thing, I just didn't nail it with the other shots.
Anyway, once it gets a wash it should stand out quite nicely I reckon. [wink]

It certainly looks like it would. That's an awesome scale for doing that kind of extra mile (Kilometer?) on. She's going to be sensational when you're finished.
