Triple AVRO 707 (A,B,C) British fighters&research; 1/72


Recommended Posts

Hello for everyone.

 

When an idea is presented, we analyze the feasibility and design technician solution containing all basic elements of the new product and new models project.

I have the pleasure to welcome all modellers, guests, participants and friends to the fourth of my WIP here on a forum and to the new one topic.

 

I am looking at the watch, getting a bit worried because I think it is necessary to inform you today about how I intend to approach the work on for the triple AVRO 707 assembly. To tell the truth, I really like a British aircrafts and jet fighters also.

The first step is still created in the traditional way:

 

-          Open boxes;

-          Spare parts inspection for the general condition;

-          Read the manual;

-          Close the boxes and forget all above (especially text instruction content)...

Well.

 

Hello, friends! The result of British fighters and research aircraft WIP by resin kits here in images.

The fuselage internal cockpit parts are installed into and the halves are connected between each other

By the way, it is a good quality for the resin kit.

I`d like to know what have been the result after the adhesive resin compound cure time. I am checking it right now.

 

From my point of vew it is OK.

What is the blue stuff on the join lines?

Hello, @Lowbrow! That`s a good question. I applied a two-components epoxy glue for that. :welcome:

Thank you friends for visiting this page and for a positive comments.

 

So.

 

I have continue to work again.

To prevent entering from dust (I expect to do some corrective action of joint lines with dry sanding) to the cockpit area, it is necessary to prepare and then close by transparent parts as well.

And the original glare-shields are replaced by other material (black tape will be better).

I`ve done some of routine work for today.

Canopies had installed already for all three aircraft fuselages (I used the "Faller" super - expert glue for that).

Please ignore the remnants of glue on joint lines. I will soon be correcting. The glue surface must be excessive application for acetate clear parts (with thin wall structure) security of installation.

The engine (for "B" version) inlet fairing assy after adjustment of gap between body and mounting flange is OK .

I`ve done smoother (around canopy frame) for fillet making.

Hope that`s all right.

"Right hands up here under here"

 

IMG_2069.jpg

 

" Now left hands UP"

 

IMG_2070.jpg

 

Done.

 

IMG_2071.jpg

 

Vertical fin and rudder assy installation

 

IMG_2072.jpg

 

We probably need to get the extra epoxy glue off. It`s got to be cut out from the join lines.

 

IMG_2073.jpg

 ...and from here

Hello everybody!

 

So, I came home within two week after my Telford SMW 2017, Cosford RAF museum and Birmingham gorgeous trip. There are so many people on the show!!!

And all that together creates positive impression - one feel good inspiration. I think a modellers inspiration is in that direction.

Well, I`ve done some corrective action with all joint wing - to - body lines

WZ736 is at MOSI in Manchester. Many years ago I was part of the Technical Crew that used to "buff" the exhibits. I once got in the 707. There isn't a lot of room and visibility was terrible! I wouldn't have like to fly in it.

 

Here it is. Sadly the interior is gone, from memory I had to sit in a plastic chair from the canteen.

These are coming along nicely.  I knew about the differences in intake configuration (& obviously the side-by-side seats in the C), but I hadn’t realised how much the wing form varied.  

 

It would all be done in computers and wind tunnels now, which is no doubt far safer & cheaper, but less fun for us modellers!
