After trying to build one a few years ago, i have decided to try again.
This time i am going for a 9th scale version built from ply, depron and 3d printed parts.

This is going to be a very experimental long term project and i hope to get something that looks more scale than i have ever managed before.

so fingers crossed, here we go.

I started by cutting the cabin floor from 6mm lite ply and then printed all the upper formers i needed and then glued them down.


there are a couple of full width depron formers as well, mainly as to 3d print them would have taken hours and hours.

Once all the formers were fitted i started on fitting the crew section out with 3D printed work stations and crew.

the main cockpit instrument panel was designed in "blender", printed out and then painted.

I then drew up and printed the pilot and co pilot, printed their seats and checked them for fit.

a few happy hours were spent drawing up, printing and painting the flight engineers station.

The next things to be printed were the signals officer, followed by the navigtors and the tactical navigators stations.

these were then painted up and glued into postion inside the fuselage.

Window frames were printed and glued inplace as well.

the cabin area is going to be double skinned so i can paint the inside before fitting the outer skin.

this is as far as i have got to date so more to follow as i plod on with the design and build.

 

Thanks for watching

Tony B

Brilliant. I like the thought of the the four contra-rotating motor units singing in harmony, I’m very pleased with my experience of them so far. A Short Sturgeon with two of them would be a nice project.

Are you going to do the galley as well? Oh and don't forget the Elsan.

Funny, I can remember the Elsan on MR 1s and 2s but not the 3s.

I love the old Shacks! I remember that they would occasionally fly over my house. The sound was tremendous!

Looking forward to the development of this project.

It looks as if it is going to be super light Tony, nice structure detail.
