SNG Daily Pics 9-23-14

Another entire day on the skydiver. Painting, painting and more painting. Almost there. Just a little tweaking. I added the screen to the intake and made a lip around it out of styrene.
Then there’s that canopy. Neither does it fit or look right. I tried to heat and bend it a bit so it would be a bit more narrow. It did look better but I wasn’t buying it. So made my own plug out of balsa.
Tomorrow I will pull an algenate mold on it, pour one in stone and tool the stone so it is glassy smooth. Pull a clear canopy on the vacuum form and then mask the windows.
Build up lots of primer and brass paint. Once the tape is removed I should have some nice depth to the window settings.
More tomorrow folks.
