Cartoon Tempest Mk II & Mk V

Hi guys, I'm oppening a thread because I've decided to build my own cartoon plane.

I Choose the Tempest because....I Love this plane!

For the moment nothing is realy done but i guess, this thread will give me enough motivation to build that baby thing

First thing I've done is Hand drawings of the Idea.



Then is a long Photoshop work. Yes, I Know, I shoud have directly work on CAD soft...But, i don't realy know those softs....I'm a Hand drawer...

If someone want to "DWG" it for me, Why not :P

Complete plans will include Wk V & Mk II nose. Body is the same for two planes.

See you on next stage

Here is last growing photo

Hi,

I think bended foam...i've got 3 mm and 6 mm Depron.
A minimum of parts for mini weight.
I will surely keep an eye on Sparks's Cartoon planes (Specialy Spitfire) But also on ey0927399's thread

Hi guys,

I'm back with some news.

First parts are cutted so I'm ready to start the body



It was not as easy as it should have been because of a printer that decide to die...

No Problem...The plan would be "Scratch build" as well! :P



Nothing will stop me!
