Following this build. Very resourceful with the disposable materials.

Cool modification! I may have missed this, but will you base this on the ground, then, with some crew figures, or will you finish it as an in-flight model?

Happy New Year , Baron .

She'll be airborne , hence the chromed steel shaft up her exhaust . ( roller-shaft from the innards of an old printer )
We finally got a blast of winter overnight so I'm actually about to start back on it ; it was 76 degrees here yesterday :D

Aight
Time consuming shaping of the right side to match the left .




She slides right in and out , keyed into place up front and aligned exactly on centerline of the jig when pushed up against that dowel .
.. .. and stays put since she already weights 1 Lb 7 Oz






The bridge of the jig slides on really snug dadoes , but I added a slot for a spring-clip for good measure -- one less thing to worry about :





First pick a point :





The right side is roughed in fat , so I throw one or more of these shims under the T's fence when it's moved to that side :





Then remove material the required amount at that point using a tiny bur on the rotary tool .
Repeat
Repeat
Repeat ..






Once enough points are plotted , the remaining material ( Aves Apoxie Sculpt ) will be removed to complete the mapping .

My opinion [for it's worth], I am enjoying your 'how-to' presentation here, for it provides 'us' builders, with information and techniques, perhaps we, ourselves haven't thought of or realized, in modelling a particular theme/subject. For me, I am all about learning something 'new', or maybe even a better way, to execute a particular task or build. I'm over 65 now [been modelling since I was a kid], and I am still learning from all you, builders here and on other Forums, regarding new ways-techniques-tools-applications-and what-nots regarding, my pursuit of building models... Great stuff, Urumomo. And thank-you, for sharing.

Yes, the step-by-step problem solving is very educational. I esp dig that dial jig you made to make the model symmetric.
