Okay Guys, I have come to a place where all the detail work is complete. Now its time for a vac table and paint more than likely I will start the painting process. I have to go see if I can find some of that one silver I had at first, it was a dull looking color and fitted well and with other color added around would have worked if not I will head to the auto paint and supply store see my friend then the paint process will begin. As said Thanks Guys for all the likes and comments much needed, here is a bit of detailing all finished. Enjoy

Okay Guys, I know its not much but its there I also have to find some a bit stronger magnets than what I have on hand these arn't strong enough. This is also another thing that needs to be completed before any painting,yep a magnet hunt I will be going on as well. These magnets will need to be to be fitted and panels tested then shoot some paint on this beast. after that I will be making a canopy. In the morning I will start making a plug or buck for the canopy which I will share. so still lots to do so Stay Tuned I will be back Thanks

Thanks Guys for all the likes and comments makes my day. How much does it weigh good question I don't know but it is a bit heavy only in the mid area bout back wing area but the way I have the camera mount it is balanced perfect. Okay so I have been on a paint hunt and wally world should have a order in this week end I will paitently await if the paint I am wanting is not in then to the paint store I go. Today was a fail on the clay I was using for the canopy buck, but I have a plan and tomorrow is a new day but a whole day wasted and really nothing worthy of a pic or two. TazMan you are right on how primer makes things look a bit better Thanks Friend. Also on the weight me and my 10 yr old grandson put it on the camera stand he also helped me flip it that day I redid that engine I also need to flip it one more time to do up the camera mount beef it up a bit make it solid instead of hollow. So to the shop I go in the morning and make a buck also be building a vac table lots of holes to drill I decided not to use the peg board this is going to be a simple vac table nothing fancy like that guy built on the tube. Thanks all once asgain I will have something to share tomorrow just been one of those days Stay Tuned it going to happen Thanks

Okay Guys, Thanks for the likes and comments keeps me making. I have a buck in progress and the paint I am not sure about, cause I did a test spray and it seems like it wants to lift the primer shouldn't do that. I also don't want a mess on my hands. So it was getting late and wifey was on me so I shut the shop down for the night there is always another day and I am glad I kept the recipt for the paint. I didn't get pics of the area I shot a bit of paint on but I do have a buck in progress Here is this happening Enjoy
20220811_125334.jpg
These first 2 pics is the fail well before the fail this was the set up before the clay more
20220811_125351.jpg
Okay this is the first canopy slide I built which is now a pattern same size as whats on the ship now only this one here is metal I didn't think it would work so I changed it to what is on the ship now. This was before the clay was added. I didn't get any pics of that mess more
20220812_135418.jpg
20220812_135428.jpg
Okay I think I should have used a couple more clamps may be three more.After the fail I want this one to be right on I just got to be sure to cut the right side, cause I was in cluse ville today getting those boards to make the plug or buck. I wish I could have got more pics as said wifey requested my time was up time to close shop and eat supper and it was a late supper but very good. So as far as cluse's with me blow torch in hand I killed about 15 or even more I know 5-8 big fat ones the rest small ones. I always watch and am aware of where they are they love my scrap wood buckets and this board was right there. Stay Tuned I will be doing something crazy in the old shop in the morning. so more happening Thanks All

Thanks Guys for all the likes and comments really needed keeps me making. So with paint in hand I got busy and I have so many pics I might have to do 2 post. This ship isn't as heavy as I thought me and my grandson flipped this thing over and it is a bit akward flipping but not impossible. Also I did something different on the magnet problem I made latches instead and they work better Okay Friends Here is some major fun happening ENJOY
