Not sure I'll have time for the wrinkled skin.

Worked on the flare launcher this morning. Now it's on to the AVQ-8 Illuminator. These both sit in the clamshell door openings. I want to finish the rear doors so I can attach them before painting.

And a couple of pics from the book. Guess we can fly formation with the A-1H, that would be cool.

found this pic of an AC-130 just using the 20mm (same guns as the stinger), remember only one round in ten is tracer!

Mt. Morgan


Looking great John.

l took Charlotte to the movies tonight and I must have walked by this mural on the side of the building 100 times over the years but never noticed Mt. Morgan . You have a mountain named after you here in California.

Thanks,
Well, I've been called a lot of things through my life but a mountain is not one of them Andy.

Foo,
They do put out a ton of firepower.

NOS progress. There is a little more detail to add. Need to figure a mounting so it will be removable. That doorway is handy for hooking up electrical components.

More progress on the NOS. It is two pieces, the sight lifts out of the structure. The bottom slides in first and then the sight is inserted into it. Just used braces inside to hold the bottom section flush against the door.

Wow John, by the time you're done with her, she'll be ready for display in either the Air Force Museum at Wright-Patterson or the Air Force Armament Museum at Eglin...and that's no joke. She'll be Museum quality, not unlike one of hammerd's WW 1 creations...

Looks like another Masterpiece -- amazing detail going into this one !

John

BTW, the pic with Sandy escorting the 119 is awsome given that those are stablemates in the Morgan Museum of Electric Flight...

You could use a Deans plug on the bottom section with the other Deans mounted in the fuselage. Then just plug it in to fly unplug it for access, makes for a firm mounting.

Thanks John

Good idea Herman. Hadn't thought of that. Need to file it away, might use it on one of the rear assemblies.

John, the detailing is amazing! it really makes the model. I have a question. I am going to attempt my first FG model. My plan is to mold FG fuse skins for a 1/16 M21 (SR71) using foam plugs. I plan to follow what you did by using 4 layers of 3 ounce cloth. My question is what cloth do you use or recommend that lays nice and forms to curves well? I already purchased my resin from US Composites, it is the 3 to 1 epoxy resin. Since this is my first attempt at this any guidance would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, Greg

Greg,
I've tried many types and by no means am I an expert. I asked my buddy Roger at Vegas this same question. He likes plain weave cut on a 45 degree to the bias. I've used plain and had good results but have also used a Volan finish. The Volan did well for me on compound curves, tends to stretch both directions well and can be molded into places. I guess what I'm saying is try one and see what you think, there is a bit of a learning curve.

Jeeze John..... All you need now is to insert hi powered flashing LED's and control via a spare channel.. Would look so cool with all guns a-blazing especially at dusk or a cloudy day!
