Those bases do look sweet Jeroen. Did you ever make any progress with doing them commercially?

Hi Gus, both the printing proces and the costs of the wooden bases make it unviable...

Some work on the cowling panels. Replacing the latches with PE latches from the spares box. Adding riveting as per Kagero 32nd scale drawings and separating the upper and lower parts of the panels. Also added some metal mesh for in air scoop.

Here's a look at the base. I had it printed in the same way I had the Ju88 base done.

This is done by an industrial printer that can print on almost every material. I tried several calculations and tried sourcing the wooden bases for an economical friendly price, but the end conclusion is that the revenue of a base like this is unviable... Sorry. So for the time being I can only produce these for myself.

 

Maybe some day I will find a way to produce these for anyone interested, but just not now.

Small progress!

I did some more on scratching the jig. Trying to guess measurements from the photo's I've got and it's getting there. Pretty sturdy contraption.

Also: The3d printed wheels arrived. Really crisp and hardy any 3d printing patterns to discover on the surface.

I need 5 in total. 4 for th main jig and one for the small jig holding the tailwheel-fork.

Splendiferous work, Jeroen!  IRT the bases laser cutting should be an option too maybe?  I know there are places in the US that sell trophies and plaques and I think they do that type of custom work, obviously it would be darker only since it's burned into the wood but maybe a viable option for those who want this type of display base,
