RWG686 35,545 Posted May 14 Report Share Posted May 14 Using these I'm going to build this lovely machine: The plan is to use the new Airfix kits along with the (terrible) Airmodel conversion kit. Here is an Airfix fuselage with a resin nose from a Basler conversion. The Basler conversion means I have an Airfix nose going spare. To give the longer nose for the C-117 and to avoid the vacform, I'm going to use this spare nose added to an Airfix fuselage which will be cut further forward than that of the Basler conversion, thus giving me the extended fuselage with only one cut on each fuselage half. A is the Basler with the pencil line showing where the cut will be and B is the C-17. The measurements will be done properly and those marks are just to show you what I plan. @Che Guava did the drawings 50 years ago and @DC3has provided US style title and number decals. This will be a long project with only occasional updates. 12 Quote Link to post Share on other sites
