Hi, I've watched Paul Budzik videos about scratchbuilding a 1/48 Neptune, and a North American AJ-2 wandered in my imagination. I've looked at the articles on Mr Budzik's site, and I'm wondering about one thing: how is the fuselage cast. From what I gathered, he made a wood fuselage (a modelling clay one for his superb 1/72 Boeing Clipper). Then he made plaster molds, so far I can follow. What I don't quite follow is next step. How did he make his resin fuselage halves for the Clipper? The Neptune videos have stopped coming (I know, I should wait but...). Has anybody here got ideas about how Mr Budzik does his magic? TIA, S.
Hi guys, I've been really busy recently, work, moving house, trying to get to most shows on weekends etc, it's been non-stop. Loads going on in the background, I have a few kits that are nearing completion (see RFI soon) but decided to keep them off BM due to time reasons but I'm putting this up as it's a really unusual-unseen built kit.., I've also just set up a new SIG with the IPMS called 'Scale Water Bombers', basically, anything that's dropped water or retardant etc over the years from Ford Trimotors to DC-10's... one aircraft that I've always been fond of is the AJ-1 Savage and two were used for aerial firefighting so I'm going to try and replicate that using the lovely Mach2 kit.

Seriously though, it's not that bad and it can be worked but that's the whole fun of modelling... isn't it. Thanks for looking in..see you on the next update.
