I started experimenting with heat forming about two days ago. It's not perfect yet, but I'm quite pleased with my early efforts. Any ideas on how to do the tinting? A dark blue/gray seems to be the colour of choice.
I've also mostly completed the ventral gun pod. It needs some tidying up, but the basic shape looks good.
As for scale, I estimate 122,5:1 (24cm model vs 27m total length according to the game fiction). At any rate, even if you just post some detailed pictures of your cockpit work, I can put something together myself.
I have managed to get around to a piece of work I was particularly looking forward to: The rear fuselage and engine area. I'm still refining and polishing but it's a vast improvement on the original (rather poor) effort.
I've also had some ideas regarding the engine nozzles. So far, a simple cardboard construction seems quite effective. I will refine the design a bit as I go along.
That's all for now. I'm currently hollowing out the various gun ports, but the next big task will be getting started on the wings. That should be fun!
