Good afternoon chaps! Some of you might remember a few years back that I scratch built the front section of a B17G in 1:20 scale. Well I made a rather crazy decision to continue down the fuselage and try to build the whole thing! I started building the bomb bay section on 17th September 2016 using the same method as the front section...same scale..(1:20 scale)...and same sort of materials...balsa wood,plastic card ,wire ,paper ,yogurt pot plastic etc etc So after a years work on and off and a lot of heart ache at times...I present to you the B17G bomb bay section.....I do hope you like it! Here is what the B17G looks like so far!....only another 4 sections to go! I will be starting the radio room section at the end of the year...after a bit of a respite! Thanks for your time for having a look! Cheers Fozzy
Cheers folks, I'd like to show you a few photos of my 1/32nd scale EA-6B Prowler, a scratchbuilt conversion based on Trumpeter's A-6A kit. This conversion required the whole bunch of techniques I have access to - CNC milling, laser cutting, 3D printing and classic scratchbuilding. The decal artwork was drawn by me and then silk printed in Czech Republic. I am currently working on a carrier deck diorama , USS Kitty Hawk's port stern section to be precise; this is the area at least one Prowler was typically parked. The Birdcage was fully scratchbuilt as it has nothing in common with its counterpart on the Intruder. The deck personnel is from Reedoak, the pilots were built using parts from several 'classic' resin figures. When will we finally get some up-to-date Naval aviators in 32nd scale?! Here's an early stage of the carrier deck section with the Prowler on top. If you are interested in seeing how the Prowler was built and if you want to see how the deck is being built, feel free to check out my Facebook page "Scale Navy Stuff"; you can find the link in my signature. If you have any critique, comments, remarks or questions, please don't hesitate to ask! As soon as the deck is finished, I'll take some better photos and post them here! Cheers Ben
