Just seen this - very impressive. I really love the look of the NASA Canberra.

Thanks crobinsonh, I intend to build it as a USAF F but if I screw up with the silver I may well go down the NASA route with her.

As I said Graham, don't despair, she may well end up in NASA colours in the end. 😊

Oh, I’m sure it’ll be superb which ever scheme you go for.

 

No pressure.

 

Graham 😁😁😁👍👍👍

Thaķs Graham,  it was a hard choice as I really like the NASA F' s too, I've built three NASA F's in 1/72 so I'm not ignoring them 😊

More work on the wing today, I've fixed to two parts together and moved on to the engine. lots of milliput! I've made a stab at reproducing the louvers at the back of the nacelle, again I've been delving in the rubbish bin, this time in the form of some corrugated plastic packing tray which fitted the bill, not 100% accurate but I hope you agree it gives the 'feel' of the louvers.

Lot's and lot's of milliput! This is just the first fill, I will still need to do some more reprofiling work on the nacelles and I'll be revisiting it with the green stuff too.

Wow!

That's looking highly impressive John. Those corrugations are little short of genius in the old lateral thinking stakes. :clap:

Hi John, Missed lookign at your build thread for a couple f weeks, so just chatching up. Lots going on here and that's a lot of 'bog' you are putting into the engine afterparts. I think you'l get wawy with the te engine louvres, they are almost hidden!!!

 

Looking forward to your next posts.

Thanks Mikey, I have two issues looming on the horizon, one is the fan fronts for the TF. 33' s and the other is the vortex generators on the tail plane's, other than that it,it's just good honest kit bashing, such fun! 😊

You'll come up with a solution :)

 

lots of finely cut plasticard for the vortex generators?

I'm working on it Micky, yes the VG's will need to be very thin plastic card it's more of a pain than a technical problem, I've not counted them but I'm thinking more than 50 and in a V shape. I've got a call out for a spare set of 1/48 A.10 front fans they my for the bill?

Just got back to the WIP- I can just hear John's wife; "Honey, is there any reason why the steaks I bought are sitting on the kitchen counter with the plastic tray missing?" John- you are a master  scavenger, but bless me if those louvers aren't the bee's knees!
