    Workshop - Aviation Modelling Techniques

    Post  Joseph on Mon Apr 12, 2010 12:00 pm

    We are in the process to commence a workshop regarding aviation modelling techniques. The general idea is that we start from the very basic elements, i.e. cutting the parts from the sprue etc. Thus all those interested are to choose an aircraft of their choice, for this workshop I have chosen the MIG15 in 1/32 scale by Trumpeter, and we will proceed with the construction of the kits, were I together with the other aircraft buffs will be mentoring all the participants. One may also prefer to include any aftermarket additions such as resin, white metal or photo etched parts. This workshop will eventually include also some basic weathering techniques for the cockpit, wheel well etc.

    All participants are to provide the kit, basic tools, paint and all relevant information/scale plans on the subject.

    Target date for commencement is Wed 28th April 2010 and will be repeated every fortnight.

    Any queries and question are more than welcome.

    Thanks,

    Luke,

    As long as these do not interfere with your studies you are more than welcome to attend. These will have an approximate duration of 2 hours from 19:00 - 21:00.

    During the 1st workshop I showed some scribing and even how to replace a door with a scratch built one from aluminium sheet.

    During the 2nd workshop I will repeat the process of scribing. Hope to see you.

    Grazzi J

    Hopefully I will start attending regularly again.....

    The main areas I would like to tackle are how to prepare resin parts to fit to a model and how to prepare and apply PE parts.

    See you Wednesday
