I hope you like it. Thanks for taking a look!
|This is a 1/400 sized T-38 Talon. for those who don't know: Each square on the cutting mat is 10x10mm.|
That's roughly 0,39370079 X 0,39370079 inch.
|I used a small sized embossing tool to initiate a little curve in the edge of the top part of the engine section. The embossing later was slightly curved by hand and by running a knitting needle along the edge.|
|The tip of the nose cone. Cutting out was the easiest part. The curving and rolling was done with the aid of a thin cocktail skewer.|
|Nose section under construction. This shows three separate parts joined.|
|Side walls added to the engine section. Light still shines through, it was pressed tighter after the glue had cured a little more.|
|This already starts to look like a T-38.|
|Cockpit and top parts added. next were the wings and tail section, and two small rolled engine exhaust pipes. Then it was ready to be added to the diorama. The final result was as seen up above.|
