Default Studio Scale Imperial Shuttle Tydirium

I decided to tackle the Imperial Shuttle. My ot=riginal plan was to bash it out in 10 days, but guess what? That's just not going to happen. I have decided to put more hours into the project.

Here is the partially detailed the dorsal wing. The side wings have been partially built and detailed:






I found some Tamiya German 20mm Flak38 (MIT Sd.Ah.51) parts that I used to scale up part of the side wings. I still need to refine some of the edges and identify the remaining part for this panel. It looks like some kind of tow rope spool. I'm not sure.




I have started detailing the front recess of the dorsal wings too with what I believe are the correct parts (Morser Karl and Tamiya 20mm FLAKVIERLING):



The structure for the main body was laser cut today. It will be held together with 19.1mm brass tubing:



I have made the patterns for parts of the wing mech. I dropped these into rubber just before I left to come home for the day. I'll be casting them up tomorrow and joining them to the side wings:



Cheers

Neil

Here is the upper most part of the body, vacformed in styrene over a polyurethane foam pattern:

The vacforming patterns are polyurethane foam. I used 1.5mm styrene:



Here it is primed and double-sided to the dorsal wing.

This is one of my favorite SW designs. I don't remember you saying or not, but will this be a kit?

Hi guys, thanks for the kind words.

Will this be a kit?

As I am trying to bash this out relatively quickly I fear it may not be up to standard and will have certain things that could be improved upon, things that will bug people.

Here's what I'm thinking...

Once my show is out of the way, I want to take what I have learned from this model and build a NEW Tydirium, improving upon the things that aren't quite right or were rushed. Hopefully (with a little help here and there) I will have identified all the donor kits by then too. The masters for this will be designed with moulding in mind and not necessarily speed of production. I should be pretty quick anyway having already built one.

Does this sound like a good idea?

Anyhow, I cast up the wing mechanism parts today:



Neil
