    Hi Jaybats! I had just lurched around your new models (I (and my uncle who nearlly build them all) like them very much) and my first view was the "Swinetrek" with a "YEAH"! I think, after the bismarck-build THIS will be my first SciFi-"Starship". I hope I will not have to build Mrs. Piggy also...
    Thanks for the new models!

    Oops, sorry, looks like I forgot to cut the slot on the rear of the delta hull all the way through! Just cut the central part in the middle from left to right, then fold them inward to create a gap as thick as the slots on the sides. The central parts can form tabs to hold the wing. Insert the wing between the slots, then insert the impulse engines and middle part over/under the wing, positioning them as indicated in the texture. Diagram attached.

    hmm, just noticed the original instruction graphic (attached) was missing from the file. uploaded a new file with both instruction graphics.

    WHOA, NICE!!!

    The Excalibur came out pretty well, don't worry! I think you just need to crease the points on the "petals" to make them close up a bit more. I don't know how else to make them close. In the meta model, the crease line runs all the way from the point to the middle of the rear of each petal. Tell me which parts did you have to figure out further, I'll revise the instruction graphic.

    The Delta looks shiny, did you use metallic cardstock?

    no, the delta is printed on matte cardstock. the textures just gave it a really good look. as for the excalibre i think an exploded parts veiw would help. the parts in the nose i couldnt figure theri orintation.the wings i ended up ctting the big tab off cause i couldnt figure how they attached to the hull. but otherwise had fun building.

    Burn out every one?

    Why so quiet? So many models so little time. Need to complete those models I started but I need inspirations! Some pics of recent builds will do nicely!

    X-71 wings

    in case you're having difficulty with the X-71's wings, note that they have to be thick at the side that attaches to the fuselage, and that they droop downwards and are not flat in line with the bottom of the fuselage:

    [​IMG]

    the forward leading edge of the large wing has a triangular cross-section to give the wing some volume. i now realize that i should have put in some internal wing support as well to create that thickness.

    it would probably be better to put the wing assembly together first (mind the gap), then attach the internal support, then wrap the fuselage onto it.
