Ar-234c please can you help me for how make properly fuselage polystyrene? ..thk

Hi everyone.


when I noticed that you have posted a new topic in the wrong section I put it here .... I hope it is much more correct ... I'm sorry!.


you could lend a hand?. I need to make a fuselage for an Arado Ar-234C in 1/12 scale
(1.800mm long) I ask you because I do not have experience of the workings of the hot wire, and i would need to be advised by experts for to create properly fuselage polystyrene ..
excuse me and see you soon.

You sure have picked a rare plane to model. And fairly large at 70" long.

As far as a hot wire is concerned, you really don't need one for a build like this.
Using polystyrene you will just need a good knife and glue. I hope you have a good set of plans and documentation, almost nothing on the web.
You go on to say---

I think your best bet is to check out this forum--

Although the Arado Ar-234C is a bomber, the fuse is much like an airliner or transport, with podded engines. The guys on that forum have built some fantastic planes. Read some of the threads, and look at the attachments, that will give you a better idea on how to build this. Good Luck

1800 mm long will be 1/7 not 1/12.

Thk Heiner for the clarification .... ok I do not know if this will be possible but I'm going to tweak the nose of Arado 234C i think so That not be a version That is more reproduction but much more an "semi" reproduction.
look at the picture and you will understand what I mean.

thk turbonut. nice plans you still have the drawings to scale?
by his 3d I took what the original (drawn in yellow) but it is too small to Work it over. I have a program that generates fuselages through various steps ... if you have designs in clear I could proceed to the realization of the ordinates and later of the fuselage ..... I would like to create a fuselage in a short time and with few problems of workability. I think the depron even if it is a material still unknown to me, the material can be more suitable. the problem is that I do not know how to deal with this because it do not and never used and do not know what use to make various thicknesses particular type main compartment to "main gears", frames port wing, etc, etc. over the depron has only two measures 3mm and 6mm what do I do with these measures? "how do I use?" .... to 6mm for the frames and the 3 mm for the skin? ...
sorry for all these questions thanks and see you soon.
