Ira,

 

Looking good as always.  Wish they would reissue the pod racer seems like the engines are perfect for 1/24 or 1/25 scale.

 

See the Olds Aerotech in the background and I saw that in the Quad bike you were doing it next. 

 

Any in progress photos of it yet?

THANKS BOB!

 

No Aerotech photos yet, soon after NNL West I willl be posting WIP photos on 2 other New Projects... B)

ROUNDING THE INTAKES!!!

 

I rounded out the inside of the Intakes with "Half-Round" Plastic Strip and Putty...

Got the Fins and Spoilers molded in, nice & smooth. Most of the Body & Underbody work is done now, so I applied some more primer.

Wow Ira this is a great idea! With all the cutting and fitting it is definitely my kind of build!

 

Hmmm I have a robotech model downstairs.............gears are now turning.

 

Keep up the great work I am for sure watching this!

I've been watching this one, Ira, and it's been a blast (like all your projects)!  I sometimes wonder why you bother buying kits at all; I'd love to see what you would do completely from scratch.

O.K., now that I've stroked your ego (deservedly); the round portholes just don't seem to go with the lines of this flier.  Other than that, I couldn't have done better myself....  Alright, I couldn't come anywhere close to this myself :rolleyes:

 

Thanks Johaan!

 

The "portholes" are where the fuel is put in Pegasus... B)

If I may be so bold...

 

This fantastic build screams for a Red Bull Racing paint scheme.

You don't know me. And this is crazy! But your model skills... ARE AMAZING!!!! This is unreal!! Like many others have said, to have your imagination with modeling skills would lead to never ending fun. Heck, by using a sharpie on my last model I thought I had entered into a new frontier. Compared to this, I'm still on the porch. Very nice work!! Can't wait for the end product.

I may have missed it, but, I am wondering about how you plan to paint it.
My two cents worth: every time I look at it, I envision a "Sox & Msrtin" type paint scheme.
Can't wait to see it finished.

INTERIOR STRIPS!!!

 

First I made the rear of the Interior with two 5/16" Plastic Strips on each side. This was easier than trying to cut a template add fit one piece of plastic on each side.

Then I glued a 5/16" Strip on each side of the Cockpit...

The strips were positioned to add a little more room for the Engines!

INTERIOR SIDES...

 

I cut 2 side walls from sheet plastic and glued them in place. This will leave just enough room for the BiG Engines!


DSCN1809P_zpsc7aa1d5f.jpg


The fronts of the Interior Sides were attached to the Intake Shafts to complete them.

The Sides were cut  so that they fit up against the Underbody tightly.

SIDEWINDER DASH!!!

 

The dashboard from Revells Dodge Sidewinder will be perfect for Pegasus!
Just have to cut a little here...

 

DSCN1825P_zpsf4b60da5.jpg


Then I turned it up side down and carved away a little more, to add some legroom...

Here it is up-side down and carved to fit, perfect for Pegasus!

MOUNTING THE DASH...

 

I traced the edge of the dashboard on to the body. By cutting this area out, I will be able to mount the dash about 1/4" forward.

Here it is in place!
