K2Pete Posted January 16 Share Posted January 16 This'll be my first Vacu-form kit to build. In this age of personal 3D printing of model parts, I'm a bit of a contrarian. Is it gonna fall together or is there gonna be a lotta work associated with this ... I'm gonna find out! ;^ D i'm a Real Space model builder and Aircraft, although a love of mine, are rare in my hobby ... but the Arrow, holds a special place in my heart. As a Canadian, this Aircraft, and it's history, fascinates me ... A photo that I'd like to model is one, taken back then, of the Arrow with a visiting Vulcan in the background. If this turns out nicely, I'll build the new Vulcan and make a Diorama of these two iconic Aircraft. So, let's get on with this ... here's the, uh, "sprue" shot ... A nice 3-view of the Arrow is included and decals from Arrow Graphics ... I hope they're still good after all these years! I'll start cutting out the larger parts, Fuselage, Wings and leave the NLG and MLG till a bit later ... ... just score and bend ... ... so far, pretty easy ... now I just need to sand off the extra thickness. I was pleasantly surprised by the fine surface detail. I always thought Vacuform models were just thin, flimsy, no detail pieces of plastic. This looks like it's gonna build into a very nice model! Till next posting! Pete Quote Link to post Share on other sites
