Comanche fuselage project update


I finally pulled a second Comanche fuselage and its looking pretty good. Added window detail. i looking into making a permanent mold. The mold I have right now is a temp mold, I expect to get about 50 -100 fuses out of this. Im waiting until after the holidays to restock mold making materials. I have a third fusel that I havent assembled as of yet. This project isnt going to be for the faint hearted. The fuse will come in halves. You will have to cut 1/4 inch strips of styrene plastic to glue the halves together. I will take some assembly pics when I glue thhe other fuse together. heres some pics. Im gonna try to get one painted up and ill probably use it as a static display

Quick question: What do you use for your permanent mold?

Thanks!

That is outstanding. I would love to have one or two of those. You could sell the kits and make crazy money. I know at least 8 people on the other BBS that would buy one not to mention me. Depending on the price, I might buy two. Please let us know the price.

I would like to put this on the market soon but I cant get any more materials until after Christmas I have quite a few orders of existing production products to get completed. Its going to take what i have left in stock to get it done. But If you guys really want one Ill start a list so I can get an estimate of materials i need to order and how many I can expect to get started. So, Shoot me an email. I going to target the price between $40-$50(we'll see).
