Thanks Janissary, it's good to have you here!

 

Well, got the cutting done and sanded strategically to fit the shoulders.

The left side is done and the fit is going to be quite good, should only need a little bit of filler up top and a bit more on the underside. Still working on the gun side, the shape is a bit more complicated on that side so I still have more sanding to do to get a consistently good fit top and bottom, but I will get there.

This has gone quite well so far, not the monster I was fearing LOL. Actually, this has been kinda fun to do, almost like a puzzle that I need to make fit.

 

So I do still need to do some cutting of the exhaust area for the AMR nozzles, and still need to figure out what I will do with the cockpit IPs and HUD.  I might try to do some scratch building of the IPs.  

 

 

Hi Sir,

What did you use to cut the plastic?

Thank You.

Hello!

 

I used a Rotary tool with a generic diamond cut wheel to get close, then sanded with sanding sticks to get the rest of the way to my pre-marked lines.  Using a rotary tool with a large cutting wheel as I did takes some serious nerves, and you have to be very careful.  That mofo eats through plastic instantly, which is both good and bad.  LOL

Thank You Sir, will be following your instructions.
