Thom Posted July 18, 2016 Share Posted July 18, 2016 (edited) Finally started this one up. this is my first time working all in resin, and so far except for some parts that needs fettling she's going together pretty good. I intend to finish her off as an AWAC assigned to Skull Squadron, and will be changing and adding some pods and bulges to depict a craft updated after the Earth-Zentradi War and assigned to the Megaroad. Parts layout, Since I'll be doing an in-flight display, the gear doors are closed and I'll also be needing a mounting spot for the rod. The model comes with a big cavity in the belly that is closed up with a panel. That's the best spot for a mounting rod though, so I had to fill that cavity up with resin in order to supply a place for the rod to seat into With that dry, I need to put the cover panel in, but it needs some trimming. Its a little over-large at the front edge. You can also see the gear doors. They weren't perfect fits, but some dissolved putty has neatened the gaps quite a bit. The nose gear door though is going to require a bit of edging to get it to settle in flat. The wing tips have also been glued on. Again I'm using dissolved putty to neaten the join lines, as well as the wing folds.That canon to the left is not going on this model! This is it so far. I'm going to try and keep momentum going on this. Hopefully, doing as straight a build as possible with help keep things moving!
