F8F "Conquest I"
« on: July 20, 2011, 03:34:23 AM »
In 1969, Darryl Greenamyer broke the 30-year-old speed record for piston-engine aircraft held by the German Messerschmitt Me 209 when he reached 777 kilometers (483 miles) per hour in this heavily modified Grumman Bearcat.

This airplane was chosen because the form is simple, and painting is also easy.
This model is produced for "How to make the solid model".

Work of body

1.The body bonds two boards. Because the center of materials becomes easy to find.

2.It bonds with the epoxy adhesive.I attach a board and catch it with a clamp.

3.It finishes it up in a complete hexahedron.

4.The side and upper shape are cut down.

5.Because the engine is not seen, only Cowling's front side is made.

6.The front side of Cowling is cut down.

7.The front side of Cowling is bonded, and the body is cut down.

As per Barry's comments, excellent work on the Bearcat. Do you always make a cockpit area?

Lou,

Yes.I always make a cockpit area.

In the solid model of Japan, it is general to make the cockpit area.
Working hours increases greatly.
