I decided to take the opportunity to shrink the jet closer to the real model. Since my wife got me the kit for my birthday I had a better frame of reference. I won a bid on eBay for a few extra Dakkajet bits so I had some pieces that would help add some missing detail. The main element of the old project were some toy binoculars I snatched from the lost and found at work. This would be the core of the new version as well. I got a chance to use my Dremel to cut the pill bottles down to a better size. I did realize that I should get some safety goggles before I use it again! Enough talk! Picture time:
|The Bombs are just to get a better angle on the picture.|
I used an old for sale sign that I found in my Mother-in-Law's garage for my plasticard. I went with a single wing design to add some stability to the model. I also did my first bit of rivet work! Very time consuming stuff, it ate up my hour a night for two nights to get all of the rivets done.
