TU16 K10-26 Trumpeter 1/72 finished 90%

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,
here are some photos of a model being completed ...
departing from the terrible Trumpeter Kit Tu16 K10 ... converted into K10-26
I propose a backward WIP, that is starting from the current state and the phases that preceded it ...

 

😎

 

sorry for my mistake english ...

 

ciao Silvano

the first step was to separate the parts that made up the nose of the plane ...

 

IMG_4661IMG_4655

 

including the radome below ...

 

create vertical and horizontal frames from scale drawing 1/72

and with the help of Tamiya two-component filler, recreate the correct shape.

Spot on now! :clap: What kind of tools have you been using to reshape that nose? 

 

Also, the canopy looks very different from the tech drawing; are you going carve a master out and plounge mold a new one?

Definitely better! :clap: How are you going to restore the frames on the canopy? Will you paint them on or will you actually try something more 3D?

Giemme...

I'm from the old school😂

two possibilities...
those of black and then finish color
or
first the black, a pair of hands of Mr. surface with airbrush and then background color ... meanwhile ... enjoy the first test of vacuform

Your method to reproduce the frames sounds perfect for the scale :thumbsup:

 

Nice vacforming, BTW :clap:

And the interiors look great with all the added detail :worthy:

Hi Folks,

let's move to the wings ...
from the drawings, the changes had to be more extensive, I limited myself to correct obvious errors...

 like the aileron, ( short ) and to open the Flaps ( inboard and OUTboard )

Your detail work is amazing, as is the major surgery you are doing on that Trumpeter TU-16!
