Viper: Thrusters

Posted September 21st, 2011 by Devin and filed in Colonial Viper MKII, Modeling

After several weeks of on and off again sanding and filling, I’ve got the wing and stabilizer roots blended into the fuselage.  It was a long and arduous process.  Let us never speak of it again.

With that done I felt that I could add the thruster assembly.  As with everything else on this kit, there were gaps, but by using the clamps as shown, I was able to pull it all in tight.  A healthy slathering of liquid cement assures that they’re never going anywhere.

Once these dry a full day, at least, then I need to drill the mounting hole in the bottom of the fuselage, and also decide if the canopy will go on before or after the painting process.  Before would make it a lot easier, but it depends on how well it fist.  I haven’t had the heart to try it yet.
