WOW! Fantastic! I look forward to every update. Only 875 hours at the bench? You're clearly not putting enough time in! Back to work! :)

Is this for a project or just pleasure? Either way... It's already a work of art.
Thank you Mr. S.King, this is just for pleasure.
I had been away from the hobby for a while and wanted to get back into it with something new that i hadn't seen before. An out of box kit didn't interest me for a first build, i had 7 models in my small stash and i had a box of interesting plastic bits i had been collecting for about 10 years, from swimming pool pump accessories to fan housings to spice caps to mouth wash caps. I had never done a scratch build before so i made a plan baised on shapes and lines and designs of things i liked and the MK.1 is what i came up with.

If i hadn't gotten back into modelling again, those 875 hours would of been spent drinking, smoking and watching crap Tv programs and it was time for change in my life.
Thanks for stopping by

this first part looks a little out of place but it is setting the style for the rest of the upper flaps so trust me, I'm a doctor? ;D
I think it's safe to say that at this point, none of us are worried about the design!

WOW, simply WOW!
Been watching your build for awhile and I have to say it has been a GREAT pleasure and inspiration for me watching your ship come together!
The items you are using and the details you are added are beyond my meager means to express!!!
And now to find out you are doing it for fun, ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC!!!

I truly hope someone out there working on a film sees your build and contacts you to use this piece in it. What you have done so far and from your overall design it deserves to be seen on the big screen, in 3D!
Don't know if that is something you would consider but, to me, it would be great to be asked and the ultimate complement to the time and energy you have put into it!

Please fellow members I don't mean to belittle your comments or the adoration you have posted towards this build! I know a lot of you here have/are working in THE field and I am hopeful you agree with my appraisal.

Great job TheNylonGag and I'll be watching intently for more, Petseal

Like many others, discovered your thread late in the game and have been playing catch-up. Rather than echo everyone else's comments I leave you with two thoughts:

1) Subscribed

2) My little brain exploded

Re: Scratch Built Red Bull Delivery Ship 3011AD, The Nylon Gag MK.1

Welcome my friends,​

Thanks for the comments guys, i appreciate everyone taking the time to comment, it means alot.​

Had a couple of deliveries this week​



Had been dabbling on and off in the mid-week but then Friday came and the wife was away all evening until very late so, i hit it hard on Friday, one of those 'set your alarm so you remember to eat deals'.
Had to pop into work for a few hours Friday morning but sat down at the bench at 11am and didn't leave until 12.30am Saturday morning, smashing.​

I was working on the rear flaps for the upper wings, i wanted the flaps and the airbrakes to work, sometimes i make it so hard for myself but boy, was it worth it on Sunday when i put it all together.​

This is going to go fast so pay attention, there will be a quiz...​

Basic shape​


Cut out wing and removed airbrake portion​


Cut, punched and shaped the various components.​

Wing Struts​


Airbrake arms.​



Basic hinge shapes​


I used clear plastic tubes i found for spacers between the various struts, and glued it all together. This was after much cutting, adjusting, correcting, swearing, tantrums etc.......​



The first test and it works.



Then basically the same process with the smaller inner wings, these would not move but the airbrake flaps would still operate.​


Then fitted each airbrake flap with a larger outer flap​


I then went about attaching the flap assemblies to the main wing back detail plate​

First, small alignment hinge back plates​


These were attached to the main wing back plate at the correct spacing.​


The small hinge was then attached to these alignment back plates, being careful not to use to much glue so the whole thing got stuck.​


Test in position.​


Are you still with me...............good.​

I ran into an interference problem between the large and smaller inner flaps. but a small modification solved this, i can dress it up a bit later with detail. The smaller inner flaps were attached straight to the detail back plate , no hinges needed​


Everything was then put in position on the ship​




And tested the flaps.​





And breath.​

I am so happy with how it turned out, i think it looks perfect with the rest of the wing assemblies and the ship.
The flaps will be detailed later when i skin the outer surface of the wing.​

Now its on with the detailing of the main wing back plates so stay tuned​

That's all folks
Take care my friends​

Just the amount of time you took to hand cut so many pieces is impressive lol. I need to get a bottle of pledge with future shine before they decide to change the name and confuse us all again. How many hours do you think you'll have put into this when you're done?
