The The Interior, Bubble Top and Roof are from Monograms Cherry Bomb.

 

The Main Engines are from the Revell F-14 Tomcat.

JETS!!!

 

I test fit the Underside of the F-14 Tomcat to the inside of the Romulan Body...

After a little trimming on the inside of the Romulan Body the Hornet Body/Engines fit perfectly.

ENGINES-TOP SIDE!

 

I only need part of the rear section from the top side of the Tomcat so I cut the front off and then removed the Rear Wings.

 

DSCN1979J_zps8fd3e3fe.jpg

 

I fit the top half of the Romulan Body to the top half of the Tomcat Body/Engines and Marked the area where they met.

 

DSCN1989J_zpsf455e8f8.jpg

 

 

I cut the area out along the lines. This is just a rough cut, I will be fitting and cutting later, for the Best Fit!

My favorite part of modeling, cutting and creating.  I like how your mind works, can't wait to see where this goes.

CHOPPED TOP!

 

I cut the Cherry Bomb Top off with a Cut Off Wheel in a Dremel Tool.

 

DSCN2124X_zps5c733c24.jpg

 

Then I traced the Tops Shape on the Top Half of the body and cut it out.

What i dont understand is how do you get so many awesome builds completed in a year. I cant find time to build a box stock car in the time you build one show stopper.


Keep it up. I enjoy your builds.
