I've been putting it off to have a go at vacuum forming the canopy, I made myself i box with holes in & a couple of frames to hold the A4 acetate.
Needless to say it's been a very steep learning curve & ive run out of acetate. I think the 0.6mm I've been using is just too thick, I'll see if I can get some thinner stuff & give it another go at the weekend.
I've been looking for a 1/12 scale pilot figure for a while now, the only ones I could find that I liked were in Finland but very expensive. So I started looking for a 1/12 action figure, eventually I found a Jessie Pinkman figure from breaking bad (no I've not watched it either), it was only £10 so I thought why not..
It's made out of vinyl & heavy, 120g, also it's solid and nothing moves, action figure eh!
I started off cutting his arms off & chopping him in half.
He has the right posture now so I've started trying to remove some of the weight.
I've had to stop now so the kids next door can get some sleep, grrrr...
Hope I can find a pilots helmet, I'm guessing I'll have to make one out of Milliput
