WINGS OUT BACK!!!

 

I made Paper Wing Templates and then cut 2 pieces of plastic for Rear Wings. I sanded down the outside edges Nice & Sharp.

I also cut out 2 pieces of plastic to fit in front of the Engines and glued them in place.

MOVIN' INSIDE!!!

 

I painted the Interior Flat Black. Then I then I used some Run & Buff and highlighted all of the Knobs & Buttons!


DSCN9766S.jpg


Rather than filling the gaps with plastic, I used Brass Screen on both sides of the seat...


DSCN9777S.jpg


Stiletto is controlled with Handle Bars attached to the Control Column. I carved down the sides of the Rectangular Control Column, Nice & Curvy...

Ira, could you elaborate on how you applied the Rub N Buff to the knobs? It looks great. Keep up the good work, your builds are always fascinating!

Thanks Hugh!

 

I put a little Rub & Buff on my finger and rubbed it on the buttons. It's a paste, you apply a thin layer and you can polish it with a rag or Q-Tip... B)

ED'S NEW RIDE...


The Pilot from the Stinger Kit had an Uniform and Hat. I ground off the hat with the Dremel Tool. I also removed the High Collar and Zipper down the from of the Jacket.

 

DSCN9748S.jpg


I thought it would be Fun to set up Ed Roth as the Pilot. So I added Putty for Hair, Beard and to cover up the Jacket.


DSCN9759S.jpg


After sanding the Putty smooth, I sprayed some Grey Primer/Filler on the Figure...


DSCN9774S.jpg


After a little more putty and sanding and I sprayed a Basecoat of Flat White on the Figure...


DSCN9830S.jpg

 

Looks like Ed is ready for some Painting... :rolleyes:

ADDING A LITTLE COLOR...

 

I started by painting Ed's T Shirt with White Acylic Paint. Then I painted his Jeans with 2 shades of blue.


DSCN9843S.jpg


I painted the flesh color next. Then I painted the hair Black. I used pointed Tooth Picks to paint Ed's Beard, Mustash and Eye Brows...


DSCN9851S.jpg


I added a Rat Fink Decal to Ed's T Shirt. Then I sprayed the body and arms with Testors Dull Coat.


DSCN9861S.jpg


Quick Test Fit !

you can take a pencil top eraser ( the triangel shapped ones... put a thin coat of silver ( realy thin ) and then lightly press and or swipe the raised detail

 

 

 

GREAT TIP!!!
