ROUNDING OUT THE FRONT...

 

I cut plastic oversized shapes to fill the cuts and attached them with Zap-A-Gap-Green Label...

I cut the sides from the "Short" Rear Section of the AeroTech Body.

Then I cut the height of the sides down so that I could fit the Side Sections in. Then I glued them in place...

Next I cut the side pieces from, the Front Under Piece, and glued them in...

MORE ROUNDING...

 

I turned the body over and using the Front Underside Corners as a guide I ground off the excess plastic on top!

Here are the Top Corners after some more sanding...

I also cut some of the height from the front fenders...

To get inside Ira's mind would be a place not understandable to most of us mere plastic dabblers. I like everyone else will be eagerly following this build to see what he finally comes up with.

THE UNDERSIDE!

 

I cut a piece of plastic to fit in the Engine Cover Hole. Then I glued it in place. I also cut 2 small pieces from the donor rear body to fill the 2 areas at the front corner...


DSCN1140A_zps6c3594c7.jpg


Next I glued 2 pieces of Plastic Strip and glued them on the inside edges of the Access Hole. Then I cut another wider strip to fit on the front edge. This gives me a good shape for the Access Panel.


DSCN1143A_zps4fdc558d.jpg


I cut a plastic piece to fit between the front corners. When glued in place it formed the bottom of the Intake Opening.


DSCN1151A_zps430ff0fe.jpg


Then I cut the  Access Panel from Sheet Plastic and fit it in place...

This is an awesome build! Please tell me you are going to use the holes in the front as pockets for headlights.

Very sweet.  I always thought it'd be cool to build the aerotech as a two seater.  Then my mind went to tandem seats, with a rear gunner ala WW II US Navy style.

 

Sounds like an interesting build... B)

Thanks.  I just need to get it out of my head and into plastic.  Maybe you can run with it...you're quite the inspiration with plastic!

GLUE IT TOGETHER!!!

 

I did some fitting & cutting untill the top and bottom Rear Vents matched up inside. "Corregated Metal" Sheet Plastic was used to cover the Vents.


DSCN1163A_zpsd7e6b08a.jpg


I can finally glue the Rear Sections together! (I was using Blue Tape to hold the body untill now.)
Next I cut 2 pieces of plastic to fill the wheel openings and glued them in place.
