    F/A-37 resin build

    Hi All:
    A fellow in the UK is building a resin version of the Talon using the STUDIO
    BLUEPRINTS!!!! The web address is index .
    If that does not work, It is a work in progress in resinilluminati.com. Also,
    will your card version have the drooped nose?
    Best Wishes
    Matt

    He's working off the same reference I am. The model will most closely resemble the blueprint version, which varies from the final 1,2,3 version slightly. It was going to be considered the "production version" by the person who originally contracted me to make it (an subsequently bailed).

    Both the resin and the paper models humble me. When I think I'm good, all I have to do is look to Armorman.

    ...and realize that you are dealing with someone who should be committed?
    ;)

    Out of town for a couple of days. I'm on my sister's computer.

    The biggest problem I currently am having on the landing gear are the wheels. I was trying for something a little more realistic, but I'll probably be going back to the basic wheel design if the next proto does not work out.

    FINALLY SOME PROGRESS!!!!!

    I finally have some wheels that look decent and aren't a major pain to build and almost have the bugs worked out on the shocks....

    in other good news....I just scored a copy of the T-800 Endo kit (as in the printed version from Japan).

    Here's some pics of the front landing gear assembly sans shocks...

    Can't say that I blame you, considering the amount of work you put into this, I guess the obvious question is.... How much?

    I'll let you know....but right now it's looking to be in the $15-20 range for the PDF.
