Wingco57 Posted March 7, 2013 Share Posted March 7, 2013 When I got the two Windsock datafiles on the "Bloody Paralyser" sometime ago I got bitten by the scratchbuild bug. The boxy fuselage looked to be a great first attempt at scratchbuilding. The basic construction went together very quick. I usually spent a short time making progress before working on other projects to keep myself sane. It is to 1/28 scale as I miscalculated. This is an ungoing project but this is an overview of how it all went together sofar. It's an very enjoyable journey building your own models. You can blame nobody but yourself heh heh. I would recommend it to all (scratchbuilding, not blaming yourself). Hope you like it Cees Basic fuselage dryfitted to check for fit. Control column Two sections of Pritt glue sticks make up the two fuel tanks above the bombbay Another view Control column and rudder pedals This is what it is supposed to look like in the end With some paint on Attempting to make wood Dryfit again Nose gunners compartment with distinctive fishbone planking Dorsal gunners compartment Cockpit area Starboard side Port side Pilot's office His seat made using Miliput Something I dread for a long time, the bombbays, very complicated You get the idea It's large It worked Another view Side view Bombbay underside with doors Assembly time Not just yet Fuselage is assembled Top view This is the current state of this build. For the WWI GB starting in July I plan to build another one alongside it but then to the proper scale 1/32. Knowing from experierience I would do it totally different now. Hope you like it sofar Cees 4 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
