Engines Added

Just some posing shots of the engines added. The Engines are WIP at the moment and just show the overall shape and scale. They'll be 3d printed and resin cast.

Engine Mounts

WIP Detail of the Engine Mounts, allowing the Engine nacels to be attached by Magnets btu also rotated to one of 12 positions for posing in flight or on the ground.


So far...

Just a little posing shot of everything combined so far.


The rear door is proving problematic - to get a shallow enough ramp to be believable.

(Note: I've yet to cut the lower skin around the landing gear, so the skin is hidden in this shot)

Landing Gear

The landing Gear is adjustable - held together with magnets it can be positioned either DOWN ...


...or UP.


The sole of the landing gear footfits the recess in the outer skin when retracted so it doesn't need a cover and is held up by a couple of small magnets in the top of the foot. When the Landing gear is down, a couple of steel pins are inserted on the foot and attach to the hull, again with magnets.

As well as laser cut components I am going to have the landing gear 3D printed. The tubes and steel pins are simple modelling accessories. So, this is still looking like it might be sellable - but it wont be cheap.
