Studio Scale (1:24) Angel Interceptor from Captain Scarlet

Recommended Posts

With the weather improving this weekend, some progress has been made...

 

First off the nose has been glued to the fuselage using epoxy glue:

Bit of a gap at the top but that can be filled. next the mesh has been attached to the tail front section

I've deliberately left the bottom part off as this needs to sit flush with the fuselage to fit

The engine exhaust has been given a coat of Halfords Aluminium - i LOVE this paint!

As I said earlier, filling the gap would not be difficult...

All those voids, holes and gaps noted previosuly have also been filled and sanded and are looking okay - I think!

Finally for this update, the instrument panel has had dials added via Airscale 1:24 Modern jets set

I've glued the front of the tail to the back of the tail this afternoon - there will be a big gap dues to the steel mesh but thats what P38 was invented for wasn't it :) More later...

This will be my last update for a short while as I have to go into hospital tomorrow for a minor hernia repair operation, so that means it'll be a couple of weeks probably before I can get back into the swing of things. Anyway the finaly update from yesterday's work is all good... First off the tail. I forgot to take a pic of the two parts of the tail joined but showing the large gap caused by the wire mesh. However, after some P38 and sanding it ended up looking like this:

You can see from the filler how big the gap was! The darker patches aren't gaps, just where the superglue acted as a filler rather than P38 :) From the other side:

After the nose sanding from earlier in the day, I gave it a coat of filler primer - you can'tr see it well on the pic but there is a visible indent along the joint.

So it was out with the P38 again and after a while, it was sanded back again to give this:

Then one final blast with the primer and all is well!

Back in a couple of weeks all being well!

I'm not surprised you've got a Hernia moving that thing about!

Best wishes and we eagerly anticipate your return.
