Geoff, this is an inspiring build. Posting it here as a great example of bringing to life a project line drawing.

Very nice!

I've had the great privilege of watching Geoff create this lovely build over the last 2-3 months, a considerable amount of work has gone into getting this one to look as good as it does.

Top job Geoff!

cheers

Gorgeous. What did you use for the fuselage?????

Its the Heller E3 Awacs fuselage with 5cm section removed fwd of the wing and the nose cone and tail filled with milliput.
Then the cental section of the fuselage was covered with strips of Evergreen strip styrene 3.5mm thick to first blend out the ballon shape of the 707 fuselage and then increase the girth of the fusleage to match the 111 dimensions. then lots of sanding and milliput etc to round down the edges, blend to the existing fuselage and reshape the nose and tail. - Simple

hmm. You get a little leeway here as it is a paper project. I may take a stab at it "someday". I wonder if it would be easier to use 2 1/2" pvc pipe and a c-130 nose and tail? Then I could get in the load ramp. Just musing.
