  1. Thanks! I start with a bulkhead similar to what you described. I do the canopy separate as you suggested. I run into issues with the subdivision surface when putting in edge control loops. It never ends up looking quite right. I think more practice is required. At least my current results vaguely resemble an RB-66
  2. Do you usually start with a cylinder, put in loop cuts, and rough out the basic shape, or do you start with planes, extruding them along the reference pictures? Ive been struggling with an RB-66, and can’t get past the forward part of the fuselage. I can never get it to look right..
  3. That’s starting to really take shape. The finishing job is looking superb!
  4. I’m in awe. It’s difficult to believe that this will be your first finished model. Your skills are professional grade!!! I especially love the work on that pilot figure!
  5. Awesome! I love watching a master at work. Very inspirational!
  6. The result was worth the effort. What you have produced is indisputable from an injection molded kit. I know very well the trial and error of 3D modeling. It is painful but rewarding at the same time. I’ve gone the hard route with Blender and have gotten good results but wish I’d started with Fusion 360 instead 😎
  7. Very nice!! Can you tell us how you did this in Fusion? I have not had a lot of success in doing curved streamlined shapes with it.
  8. You did such an outstanding job that it’s easy to mistake the model from the actual aircraft
  9. I have no words to describe how truly mind blowingly amazing this is. I honestly think you’ve hit the pinnacle of scale modeling perfection
  10. Getting the correct contours is a painful process. If the blueprints provide good cross sections I use those in edit mode as a guide. I create planes of each cross section and put those along the reference drawing. Given the awesomeness I have seen you produce, I’m sure you’ve come up with a better way. 😎
  11. Outstanding work!
