An Me509- to fight cancer!
« on: November 05, 2012, 11:04:35 AM »
I've entered a group build to benefit cancer research.  You can read about here,My link and there's still time to sign up- or simply donate a buck or two. 



Well, here I go- better late than never!   Since I'm in a time bind, I can't guarantee that the girls show up on a regular basis- I'm busy buildin', man!  ;)















MOD EDIT: Fixed a link!

 Always nice to see Fritzi ( though my heart belongs to Hannah ) and I'm sure this will be another
 show-stopping build. Good on ya doin' it for a worthy cause.

 ...and a quick tangential question- what is that Mech on the screen of your phone?!

Welcome to BtS, Chuk' and Fritzi (panting) and Pfennig and the rest too. Have followed your projects for a long time. Didn't know you did digital art as well, .... pretty excellent practice! That belongs on DeviantArt if not there already.

Happy to welcome you to this land of immeasurable improbability !

Well done!

I had to laugh because two solicitors have come to my door in the past couple of weeks, asking me to buy something "to support cancer".  Each time I've successfully resisted my desire to correct them or make a joke at their expense.  "Fight cancer"?  "Support cancer research"?  No, "support cancer".  *sigh...*

Thanks, Kameraden- and thanks for the help with the double-post.  I always get and error message that leads me to try again- and I've never noticed the double entries.  Sorry about that!

apophenia and Guy, canting the wheels will be no problem, but compressing the torsion springs looks to be fairly impractical in this scale.  If you have any ideas- also on turning the front wheels- I'm all ears!

Agin, my thanks- and stay tuned for more!

Sorry, dude, I work 1/35th & I still have trouble actually doing alterations like that.

I have thought about taking the kit leaf-springs out (coil springs are beyond me completely) & scratching some flat ones from thin styrene sheet but didn't (too much like hard work at the time, as I'd already put the rest of the build together). Turning wheels that are moulded straight can be a definite PITA. So far I've only used the play in the kit parts to induce a slight turn but I have thought of a more complex method involving cutting off the hub/brake/ball-joint unit & replacing the ball with a similar sized bead (attached to the axle using wire through the hole) & grinding out the socket/cup side of the joint with the Dremel. Fit. Induce turn & camber. Glue (remembering to cut & paste the steering linkages as required).

Not sure it will be of any use but I hope it helps.

:D

From the look of it the 1/48 scale kit isn't much different from the 1/35 version. I would suggested you cut off the spindles and glue the piece to the wheel. I would try to keep it flush. Once it was cured,I would drill holes into the wheel and where you cut the pin off. Do this and pin the parts together with the angle for the turning front wheels. This is how I would do it in that scale.

Nice work! I especially like what you've done with the Kübelwagen -- both the suspension changes and the latest addition of weight  ;)

Thanks, guys!   It's been one thing after another lately,  with the latest being a dead PC!    Fortunately the drives are recoverable, and a new macine is due in tomorrow- hurray!   The kubel is done, the base is done, the plane is done- and the figures are in process.  I hope to finish up this weekend and make the final post, which has already been started.   Stay tuned!

Are tires OOB like that or did you sand off tread making them look well used ?

Not to drag this back but I do want to say thanks!   Cliffy, the girls are in leave until my next German build- Pfennig, too!   We'll have new coins and a new lass for the IAR.  :D   Finsrin, the aircraft wheels are True Details with the bulges sanded waaaay back- they're the treadless, smooth variety.  The Kubel wheels are staight from the box- with the seams sanded off, taking some of the tread, too.  Makes 'em look like they've gone across all of Africa, doesn't it?  Cheers, GeeTee- does that mean I can post "real" aircraft on these boards?  Is there a specific place for non-whiffers? 

Cheers!

Always!  Whilst we have a tendency towards the what if type subjects, we also welcome real world just as much.  There is no special place since they can just go in the same Current and Finished Projects areas as other builds.

I'd have to say I love this thread on so many levels

Firstly, I admire charity work (especially when it goes to reputable charities who are actually in it to help people with conditions like... cancer) and I think it would be awesome if there were more art projects devoted to this so hats off!

Secondly, I love the aircraft design

Thank you kindly, gents!   I was hoping to get a start on the IAR 81C this past weekend, but Sunday afternoon my wife suddenly realized that she had left her wallet on a vendor table at the flea market.  Bummer- especially now that she has to go through the joys of the DMV.  :P   I did spend a fair amount of time looking through the kit and the lovely book bt Radu Brinzan.   I've got some fun detail work ahead of me!
