Gates Learjet 35A - RVHP 1/72

Recommended Posts

Magnifique, a real work of art. When will the lights be switched on?

Just ask for it :)

I glued the MLG and soldered the LEDs.

Closer. The size of the LEDS is just incredibly small. It was a real challenge to solder the four connecting wires without melting anything around.

From 300: "This is madness!"

I did not realise you were going to light the lights. I need to pay better attention!

The front gear is finished and I sand slightly the tires to even out small differences between all 6 tires.

Here we are: the Learjet sits proudly on all its three legs.

Next are the gear doors. The front ones are wrapped, so I flaten them out with my hot air gun at 100°C.

...will you be in Montreux next weekend?...

Thanks Roberto :) Yes I will attend the Montreux show, without the Lear however (not ready by then). I'll have the Swordfish, Felixstowe and F-4E Peace icarus.

The plane itself is FINISHED. I still need to do:

- the door

- the many antennae

- the "weapons" (ECM pods)

- some weathering

- the diorama

Here come the latest pictures, without any comments nor match ;)

Have a good night everyone :)

This bit of brass will become an antenna. I started with the largest one to get sp,e practice. The small protruding pin is the link to the body of the aircraft.

Finishing of the surface. The red arrow points to the 0.3mm pin.

Drilling the hole for the antenna pin. It must be exactly centered on top of the body. Note all the dust that collected on the model since July...

20110928-Learjet-4.jpg

Here is the first antenna. I will paint them all in one batch.

Closer, for the short-sighted people like me :-)

The heavy guns have arrived from Hong-Kong : the power supply is to feed my models with electricity without a wall socket, for a periode covering an entire week-end or more.

20110929-Learjet-2.jpg

1. A 220/12V, 250W power supply to feed a charger.

2. The charger loads my LiPo battery packs rated 4'000 mAh and above.

3. The packs finally deliver the energy to the models.

My small week-end production: 28 small parts, most of them antennas, plus pitot tubes and AoA sensors. Many parts are built by assembling and soldering three components.

20111009-Learjet-2.jpg

20111009-Learjet-4.jpg

All parts have a location pin to be inserted into the body of the model, either cut out or added ba soldering.

All parts are brass, which I love for its ability to be easily shaped by cutting, filing, sanding and soldering.
