Thanks guys. Just building a little detail in the landing gear cowlings tonight.
I love this, always striving for more awesome hey baz ;D
Striving to add more hours to a day so I can get this thing finished more like...
Thanks to a new social media friend named Sean, who kindly provided a long off-cut of rubber mat to simulate the texture of the technical drawings. Preliminary fit shows it is easy to cut and trim using a knife, but will need some contact adhesive to lock it down flat.
After contact adhesive. Lovely and flat.
Adding hydraulic lines using plastic coat-hangers. (Still gotta glue down the rubber mat.)
Replacing the catapult linkage. I’ve kicked and broken the plywood/plastic one twice now, so it’s time to replace it with 10mm plate steel and steel tube. Strong enough to sling-shot a Viper out of a launch tube!
Build update video.
