I don't know. If they do pay for it, I don't think they should have to trim off anything. I would add their face in the helmet and their name and choice of call sign for under the canopy and print it with their skin set. I would need a head shot of them at a bit of an angle, just so you can see both of their eyes. My skins turned out dark so I will be lightening the canopy color up a bit.
That reminds me, I need yours first!

Beautiful job on the build and skins Rasterize! Does the skin kit come with the gun skins? This feature should be incorporated into the kit.

Thank you Ken!
You know, one of these days I'm going to lay off the space stuff and just do your WWII planes. Just don't tell Dennis!
Skins for the Guns are done as are the landing skid graphics. We just need the front removable "display skid" formalized for the kit. I can send you the plans for the gun and the skid graphics to work from in the morning. Looks like my evening just got very busy.
I must say that building from one of the cut kits makes things so much easier and fun!

I have just come in on the tail end of this and all I can say is WOW! Well done Rasterize!

I have had a similar idea but would like to flesh it out into a full fuse and drop an EDF in the guts somewhere to have it more realistic. I have a 70mm EDF out of a downed bird that needs a new home - thinking of depron/balsa maybe...?

Anyone gone the distance on this and report of any findings as to if it works out OK or not?

Thanks in advance

Ben

Hey Benny,

One of my friends tried to do an EDF of it about 5 years ago and it didn't work out. But EDF performance is light years ahead of where it was back then.

THere is also the issue of the entire front fuse is wing area for my design. I think that is part of what makes it work.

As soon as Raster ships me some skins so i can test everything, i will be releasing this as a kit.

Still waiting for the non-helmeted head shot. You got time. A least a week or so before I can work on them. I'm in full NEAT countdown mode! Packing starts tonight! Not much computer time planned.

Battery position

Hi to all

I got interested with this built but i was thinking where is the battery will be positioned, as mentioned in front of the cockfit? Does any one have a picture of a plane already flying with its battery location / position? Hope some one can post a picture it will be a great help, i love to built this classic plane from Star Wars.

I am working on the Prototype Kit right now that will include the skins. It is a bit smaller than the plans I have posted so the skins probably won't fit your build. So you might have to just go with paint. Sorry.

Once I have everything built and tested I will be selling the kit and skins on my website www.sg-ideas.com
