MORE ENGINES & FINS!!!



I couldn't decide weather to have more Engine Details or more Fins...then I found these parts!

These are the Engine "Backs" for the X-Wing. I added strips of plastic on the edge and then sanded the strips down to a sharp edge.

I also cut 2 pieces of plastic tubing, flattened them a bit and glued them on as shown...

Here are the New Engines & Fins in place!

Ira,

 

Just found this one and all I can say is really cool.  You come up with some interesting ideas and use some interesting kits to make it work.

 

Keep up the good work.

Looking forward to see this at the NNL West.

WINGS UP FRONT!!!




I cut 2 Wings out of sheet plastic and Filed down the edges, Nice & Sharp!




DSCN9595S.jpg



I used Foam Sanding Boards and Sanded the Mounting Edges of the Wings Flat and made a Flat Spot on the Body. Then I glued the Wings in place with Zap-A-Gap, Green Label Glue.





DSCN9598S.jpg


Here they are in place!

CUTTIN' THE BUBBLE!!!



I wanted to cut off the front of the Bubble Top and make that piece , part of the body. I used a strip of Blue Tape as a guide and, Carefully cut off the front of the bubble with a Kona Razer Saw.





DSCN9620S.jpg




Here are the 2 sections of the Bubble...




DSCN9623S.jpg


I glued the front piece of the Bubble in place on the body. The Bubble Top was used to position the piece.

NOSE JOB!!!


I cut a strip of plastic to fit between the body and the front piece from the Bubbletop. When glued in place this Piece will make the Nose a little more Streamlined..

 

DSCN9626S.jpg


Here is the Piece glued in place. I also cut 2 triangular shaped pieces of plastic that were glued between the Piece and the Body.


DSCN9628S.jpg


After adding putty and doing a little sanding the Nose looks like this...

Here is the Body with some primer sprayed on the area!
