The interior is complete (excluding side struts, which are to be made from brass), the kit will come with 2 pilot seats and 9 passenger seats.

 

Just the undercarriage to go!

Front undercarriage legs complete, I still need to sort out the main wheel and create locating holes in the wing. Tail wheel to do still too!

 

Anson_Undercarriage2

After the undercarriage is done, there is only the radiator baffles and exhaust to complete :)

Looks good! Are you planning in the future on offering the gunnery training variant with rear turret? 

Did the late mark Anson ever have a rear turret, I thought that was only the early version with the wood wing and lower fuselage?

@Kushan_Farsight my original intention was to offer both the early and late versions of the Anson (starting with the late version as Classic Airframes make a [very expensive] kit of the early version), however,  the only common parts between the early and late versions are the rudder and undercarriage!

I'm calling this done :)

It's far from perfect, but how many late mark Ansons are available as scale models!?

 

I'm getting fairly efficient with these now, this whole design has taken only 2 weeks, working about 3 hours a day.

Any 'Test Shots' of the model in resin form available yet? Looks Great! 

 

I've hit a production issue! 

 

I can CAD model at a decent rate and produce a complete design in a month or two. 

 

The only trouble is, it takes a week to print one model and I've only just finished printing the last of 25 1/48 Fairey IIIFs!

 

I'll be printing Chipmunks next which will take a couple more months. Until I can speed up production (new printer), I'm afraid these projects are going to take months to get printed :(

How much is the 1/48 Anson likely to be?

Not a clue yet! But I would guess around £60-£80... 

 

I wouldn't get your hopes up about seeing this anytime soon though, it's just a hobby for me and my little printer doesn't have the capacity to keep up with what I've been printing! 

 

If I decide to offer this as a kit, it won't be until spring or summer.

Yes, unfortunately, at the moment I am struggling with my printer as it keeps freezing mid print. I've raised a help ticket with anycubic and I may need a new motherboard. 

 

This has totally thrown my schedule...

Hey dude, 

 

Can't help with the Anycubic but needed to quote you to get your attention. If you're still looking for a vacuform ( and don't mind expenditure) then I've just seen an advert for something called a "Mayku Formbox". Could go miles for reproducing your 3D print masters as well?
