The Betty model, replica prop fix

I just realized its been a long time since I posted any progress. It takes a lot of time to create updates to this site and my website.
I have the lower arm supports finished and the rear 'spoiler' as I have been calling it. They used jet aircraft landing gear in the support details, so recreating that was fun. The rear spoiler also took a lot of work, as well as planning.

Here is the two part rear spoiler;
I had to start with drawings as there was just too much to these two parts to do rough sketch on a pad and extrapolate sizes, etc. These parts have to fit on the rear box and be the proper dimensions to have actuator pistons fit on the rear of the top of the main hull as well. Sorry for the photo dump. I will eventually update the website with more of the process. Thanks for looking!

Looking good. I worked on the studio model way back when. Maybe these will be of some use to you on your project.
