Great work, Professor Dr Pep.!
While going through what all I still had to do, I had totally forgot to attach the main console.
So here it is.
As you can see, I was able to recess the main screen.
I greebled the nosepiece of the main console as well.
Here are the outer canards.
I attached the lower wings.
The main wings are attached.
The tails (vertical stabilizers) are attached.
Now on to the canopy.
Please stay tuned to your local Earth Directorate Broadcasting channels for further updates as they happen.
Thank you for watching.
I don't see a difference between this and the standard size TF..!
(And this is supposed to be a compliment!!! )
I have finished this little project.
I attached the canopy.
I decided to take the easy way out by having the front and rear canopy hatches just set in place.
The canopy can be opened to see the cockpit interior.
These show size comparison to both UHU02's Viper and the original size of the regular kit.
This is to show exactly how small it is compared to how big my hand is.
Here are the "Gallery" photos.
That is some fantastic work! Congrats!
Absolutely! I have the impression that you outdo yourself with every build. Excellent craftmanship!!!
Thank you both for the kind words.
Even though, I enjoyed the build, it was a bit of a challenge. It was well worth the effort though (especially to get the level of detail that I wanted).
This build was done for a few reasons.
I am planning to build another diorama at 1:50 scale.
I was curious if this model could be built (in its original format) in 1:50 scale (and to be able to put in as much detail as possible).
To prove that small models can be built by people with large hands.
To encourage others to build this wonderful model (regardless of the scale) and to post their work!!!
Thank you all for following this thread.
Needless to say, the journey is not over. I will be building more Thunder Fighters (I have to rebuild my squadron). I also have another detailing idea that I want to attempt.
Not only that, but Revell-Fan and I have ideas for more fan-based versions.
To give you actual dimensions of this model.
Length: 17.0 cm
Width: 10.0 cm
Height: 5.5 cm
Yes, it is quite small, indeed!
As mentioned above, I did have another idea to add even more detail into this (already extremely detail) model.
As I was building the previous Thunder Fighter (at 1:50 scale), I had gotten an idea to add a little, build more detail in the engines, by making the printed texture that looks like louvers, into physical texture that looks like real louvers.
In this section, I have built the entire exhaust to show all of the detail that I have put into this.
Here I have started with the base.
As you can see by the photos, I have raised the printed detail and make it physical detail.
Here I have detailed the louvers and made them look more realistic.
Here, I have continued one with the midsection of the exhaust and added it to the base part.
Here is the cone section of the exhaust.
As you can see, I have added the "star" grill at the very end of the exhaust.
I have raised all of the printed detail.
Here are the different components for the cone section.
The cone is also mounted to the rest of the exhaust.
Here is the finishing detail and greebles for the exhaust.
The exhaust is now finished.
Needless to say that this has now become my new standard for building these exhausts.
If any of you would like to do the same, you are more than welcome to use this thread as a guide for your own build.
This is gorgeous! We should add this to every new fighter mod we are making as an option.
