So that lot sorted, on to the Talon 1 & 3 parts.
Duly moulded and cast.

Sweet!
Ok, so inbetween the pouring of much sticky (soon to go soild) gear, time to get back to the fuselage.
Now i'd already cut the plastic for the top engines/intakes base plate so this was duly drilled out with many holes.
A few goodly dabs of epoxy steel glue and a few well placed screws, this wee beastie was going nowhere.

That in place and sorted, time to build up the shape.
Simply done with plastic formers, voids to be filled with auto repair putty
to make a solid backing and covered with more plastic.

So now the framing for the top wing rotation cowlings are on and glue is a curin',
time to start work front to back and build up the engine section proper.
So first things first, the front edges of the plate to be faired in and smoothed off in prep for making the intake ramps
then I will be working along the section building up to the exhaust and the outer parts for the tailplanes.

All that is for the next update however as there is much to do but very little in the way of pictures will need taking.
So untill the next round of hoo-ha, go easy you merry lot!

Due to the economic situation, the masters may be completed and
some parts cast at a later date but likely for builds rather than kits.
For the time being, this project is now on indefinate hold.
Apologies folks but that's how it is.

As of August 2009 the current financial situation has made it necessary to fully cancel this project and the masters/parts such as they are have been disposed of.
I shall be leaving this page here for information purposes.
