  1. It's been almost exactly three months since I began this project: and I'm finally ready to post this RFI For details on this build, the WIP can be found here: https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235053675-convair-b-58-hustler-172/ I've got lots to show, so grab your candy &popcorn from the lobby and settle into your seat! Aftermarket items include Caracel's excellent B-58 decal set; Aires afterburner cans and nozzles; photoetch sets from Airwaves and Eduard; and Master Model's B-58 nose probe & F-16 static discharge wicks. Paint is AK Interactive's "Xtreme Metal". I selected markings from the Caracel set for "Rapid Rabbit": Let's go! *** New photos added 14 July 2019 *** *** End of New Photos *** Selected details: Crew compartments were almost entirely scratchbuilt: Pilot's cockpit Navigator/Bombardier and Defensive Systems Operator stations: Unfortunately, not much is visible once installed: Extra detailing added to the kit's escape capsules: Hatch interior details: Panel shading on engine pods: Engine air intakes scratchbuilt: Aires provided the afterburner cans and nozzles: Nose landing gear details: Main landing gear details: Scratchbuilt Vulcan minigun: Position lights added to vertical stabilizer and wing leading edges: Astro-tracker dome added to top of fuselage: Static discharge wicks on wing trailing edge and vertical fin: Pigment powders were used to recreate the "striping" effect seen in photos of the B-58 upper fuselage: The Hustler's unique exhaust staining beneath the wing modeled using pigment powders and Tamiya smoke: That's it! A challenging build to be sure. But I learned a lot, not only about Convair's B-58, but also some new modeling techniques. Thanks to everyone who followed my build (nearly 14,000 views!!!) and for the many comments and suggestions received. Now, I must decide what my next project will be. Maybe an XB-35 flying wing? Forgot to put the nose weight in again, didn't you?
