  1. So concurrent with my GWH 1/72 F-15C MISIP II project I'm also taking a look at the Hasegawa F-15C (shout out to @hemspilot for bringing it up). Although accurate this kit also features "simplified" air intakes with no inner details: I modified the kit fuselage halves and my 3D printed intakes for the 1/72 GWH F-15 and found that the resulting parts fit together not all that bad: That's the good news! The bad news is that the actual kit intakes all too predictively won't fit in any satisfactory way with the custom 3D printed part
  2. Decided to "open up" the avionics and radar bays on the left forward fuselage section. The work combines 3D printed parts with styrene plastic... Dry fitting to test fit all the mods...
  3. Thank you! This resin is very similar to traditional polyurethane resin so I don't expect any issues with the painting. We shall see.
  4. Finally 3D printed the bulk of parts for the inner engine bay structure... "Seamless Intakes" are now completely accurate! just like the real deal!
  5. Thank you for the support. In answer to your question, yes I am considering making these available for sale including a version for the Hasegawa kit which I also have in my stash. So stay tuned for more to come!
  6. I'll typically start by taking reference measurements with a digital caliper of the plastic model/part I want to modify. Then I'll take high quality photos of the model/part in the multiple dimensional plains I need and canvas those into Fusion 360. Then I use the measurements to "calibrate" the size of the photos within Fusion so that they both match. That gives me a sort of "constrained space" I can work within to create whatever custom parts/mods I so desire. Then its just a matter of stacking up in reference photos of the real thing and work the proportions so that they look right within t
  7. Latest render of engine bay components and dry fitting of the corresponding test prints... 👍🏻
  8. Yeap that's already accounted for... In fact I may "open up" some of the panel in the front to display all those black boxes 👍🏻
  9. Details now up to the level... Latest print results... Kit just underwent surgery and its recovering satisfactory 😎.... Now working on the Engine Bay 3D parts...
  10. For the ISOGrid pattern on the augmentor and the lower portion of the core I followed the same methodology outlined on this video tutorial... For upper "slanted" portion of the core I had to basically devise a manual variation of the video above. Hope it helps.
  11. Thank you! After a bit of trial and error I settled on a layer height of 0.10 mm for the "seamless intakes", 0.05 mm for the core and augmentor and 0.025 mm for the inlet fan and exhaust nozzle. Slicers used are Chitubox and Lynchee.
  12. First test prints to verify printability (not all details included)... First Successful test print of complete engine Nozzle... Dry fitting the main parts to verify dimensional accuracy and fit... Latest render including further details... (all those pipes too 😎!) Inner exhaust pipe details...
