Hi my friends!

Time to show the another Oddball test. Aaron send me a two military versions of 707 family the long-life Boeing KC-135 and E-3 AWACS, both models is in 1/100 scale. The first test is Boeing KC-135.

I start the build for the central fuselage...

Image

Image

After I glue the segments and open a wing support hole...

Image

I build the central section of internal support...

Image

With careful I glue in the palce the Support, the gluing is made in steps, to correct aligment...

Image

Image

Image

I reserve to dry and made the external segments of wing support.

Image

Image

I gluing the segments and made with careful because the right diedro...

Image

After I cut skins of wings...

Image

And glue in the support, the secret to obtain a clean gluing is use a foam polivinil glue, for large collage areas...

Image

Image

The results at the moment...

Image

Image

Why I started for this area? I explain: The wing/fuselage aligment in this model is very important, because this I not build the other fuse segments, for have area to fix any issue (if happened), is a good tip for any Fiddlers Green or Oddball model. After I glue the third fuse segment in rear to made a wing root, for later made the rest of fuse.

Best regards! :mrgreen:

This is looking good! I have a soft spot for this one. I got to go on a refueling flight in a Stratotanker with the Nebraska Air National Guard a few years ago. One of the coolest things I've ever done!

Nice!!! I believe is a fantastic experience... :mrgreen:

Time to update.

I gluing with careful the wing roots. I start from bottom section the gluing is step by step. Is a slow work but made correct is a great difference in visual aspects.

Image

The wing roots cut...

Image

Start of gluing, I made section by section, consume many time but I believe is correct.

Image

Start of gluing of superior face of root...

Image

One side completed.

Image

Image

Image

Image


The work in wings main construction is done, time to make the fuselage. Aaron suggest made a "ring" of root and fit in the wing but I prefer the method described above, for me is more easiest to fit.

Next steps fuse segments... Best regards!

That has got to be one of the smoothest wing root sections I have ever seen!

Thank's Opalmox, for me is a great honor use my pics. :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Resume the building.

I start sections of fuse, the first section is a front fuselage.

Image

After I cut all pieces.

Image

I start the formings of pieces...

Image

I use straps of "vegetable" paper of gluing pieces without tabs...

Image

I start the gluing of segments...

Image

After tip of nose dry, I rounded with a ball former in rubber draw...

Image

I gluing the nose segments and in the tip I made a strap of vegetable paper for fitting the nose, I not exact word outside portuguese for this type of paper, but is very equivalent a paper use for protect shoes in package box. The vantage is very slim paper, easy to round and molding with glue.

Image

The nose finished

Image

Image

After I add weight in the nose, is a hunting small spheres, I gluing with CA gel glue.

Image

I install the nose and windshield without problems...

Image

That thing is big! I use little strips of bond paper to glue together sections that don't have tabs. It works really well when edge gluing on things like cockpits, little fussy curves and large petals.

Looks good.

This KC-135 is a very nice model! The shape of the fuselage is perfect. How did you manage to keep it so round? As a matter of fact, your skills are exceptional at maintaining the correct shapes for the entire plane. Are you using any supports to maintain the shape?

What weight of paper did you use? So many questions. When I see others do a step by step build and post on this site, it makes me that much more a better modeler.

I look forward to seeing the plane when you get the landing gear put in place. Once again a great looking plane!

Your build threads are very impressive. All paper modelers enjoy them, and some of us (speaking for myself) need them.

Time to reply:

Caddmann

About paper: I use filecoat (sulfite) paper - weight 120g - Print all my models in a Epson L335 in high quality photographic mode.

About shapes: I use round toll to made circular shapes, I press the piece in a rubber, or in my leg, the round tool is a small metal rod or hard plastics rods, I not use internal reinforcements only pieces of kit but the secret is gluing I use a strong glue in all tabs. My choice is PVA glue.

Thank's Scott. After KC-135 I retake the Bird's Trimotor soon.

Thank's Wad. ;)

Friends! I believe today I finish the model.
