DETAILS

Take a look see......

Started to get Tom, Dick (AKA Nemo) and Harry up to the same stage as the master










Look, Harrys naked







Second phase on the master















Had to cut the top ring on the main engine body to accept the square thingy









Tubes for the main pipe and the bullet shaped thingy






Had to cut a relief in the the side of the main engine body to get the buttet into a good position







Assembled














Some details





























Then it was Tom, Neno and Harry's turn for details
























And this is where i'm at right now

I'm happy with the direction

Better start thinking about the final light rig


Take care folks

Wow! Talk about diving into the details. That is a show! What snorkel length was required for that dive? ;D

Looks awesome Gag.

Added some more pipe work

Added the pipe work to all four assemblies






Made a master then started on the other three inner detail pieces

Re-made the large tubes, i wasn't happy with the cast ones, too many bubbles.

Tom, Dick and Harry






The whole gang

I haven't been on the forum for a while, its been over a year, I just decided to check in and I saw this thread. Holy cow.. Your work is very inspiring, been in a long time modeling rut, life has just consumed me. After looking through this build I felt so inspired, i've been working on kits all day. You are a true artist my friend. Keep it going.

Ello,

So whats been happening, not much to be honest, zero hours in June and only 11 in July.

Think my mojo was lost.

Think i got it back

Lets see.

Thanks for the positive vibes dudes

On with the show

So after the detail panels were finished i had to get all the inner walls to the same stage

This is the main back support




Cut the outer rings





Group picture





Then started work on the small additional detail panel that i realised i would need to fill a void




X4













dry fit




Ready for primer






Made some small ones again to fill gaps and add depth and interest









Then it was time to move on to the nozzel internals

Started with small vector actuators










This is the vector thrust bulkhead made from a mouthwash two pack carry handle, separated and cleaned up, drilled to receive the actuators









Added T and U channel





And thats about it so far



Did manage to finish my little shuttle launch side project














Thats it for now kids

Take care

Gag
