    From New Owner of Zealot

    Darius, Again, thank you! I joined a little before the TapTalk issue (being polite) and I have really been enjoying exploring this forum. I am beginning modeling, and having fun sharing. As to the quality of this forum, this is the only forum I have ever recommended to my grandchildren. And...

    Dr Tetrode's Valkyrie build.

    Agree on the gaps, that comes from 2 layers of frame added to the bottom layer and then bent / folded, with only the bottom layer actually bending.. If this was colored model, I would fill them in and sand smooth. Ejection, hmmmm... does that happen in Warhammer? This aircraft ha 2 jet...

    Thanks, now further adventures in canopy. Adding the frames to the canopy. This is where I should have used a clear glue, but, chose the contact cement for its quick grab. I don't have to hold it and get my finger prints all over! Gluing sides to roof. Used contact cement, and did...

    Continued..... Now is the time for the cockpit to go in. Needed to make a firewall, in the front to hide the hole, so that was glued in, then cockpit was glued in. I am surprised at how well this is going together! Flat paper to 3d model...... Having fun, Scott ;-)

    Dr Tetrode's Valkyrie build.

    Sudsy, thanks for the info and pictures. Attempting to build it with the full cut out of the frames, except the bottom layer with the tape on it. OK, artistic license in effect. Laminated 4 pieces of 110 together (With UHU ;-) ), and cut into strips and then cut chunks off and glued to the...

    On second thoughts, maybe I will greble it, and next time cut out the full window frames. Hmmm...... gun camera? IR sensor, FLIR sensor anyone? Scott ;-)

    Some more pictures. The taped part 12, note the detail on the left, what is that? Cutting, inside first, of the second part A12. You can see the detail here, too. A better look and the detailing on A12 versus A12a parts. Cut out A12. Red card in the background used to guide the...

    Dr Tetrode's Valkyrie build.

    I do not know about the yellowing of the tape. The tape I am using is packing tape used to tape up moving boxes. I have some that are years ago taped in the garage, and are not yellow. The other side of this is that this is the first model I have built, with this complexity, so I am building...

    Dr Tetrode's Valkyrie build.

    Thanks, will be doing doing the dry fit thing. I think I am close to cockpit time. The canopy is the next hurdle. So here goes. Working on final glue up of the front of the fuselage. Now starting on the canopy. Now all cut out. How do I make it solid and clear? Packing tape? I...

    Blackadder's Imperator Titan Build

    This was the first 'build' I read from front to back. I really enjoy how you explain how you come to decisions on what to do. I am impressed with you skill in construction with plastic and enjoy the techniques you share. I can't wait to see the final product. Scott ;-)

    Got the UHU at the local scrapbook and stamp shop. Hope they keep it in stock. Mine has a blue twist off cap. They were trying it, so I need to get back there and buy some more! ;-) Scott ;-)
