Israeli HAS (Noy's Miniatures)

#1

Post by marcopreto »

I've started this kit a few days ago! My plan is to follow the layout of the supplied base, but have its interior slightly more detailed. I am using 3mm MDF as my main building material, so I need to make small adjustments to the dimensions supplied in the kit instructions.

Here are a few photos with my progress:

I've started building a frame for the base.

I copied some reference lines on a 3mm mdf board (I'm going to glue the printed card base over this board) to plan the base layout and to assemble over it without damaging the printed base.

I've started detailing the interior of the hangar, starting with its sealing (I still need to had some details to the roof before gluing it in place).

And this is its present state. There are still some sanding required and the large exterior side wall still needs to be completed.

I'll update you on my progress with this kit!

So Marco, you are not only a superb modeller but also a carpenter and picture framer too?

Are you allowed to bring your woodworking bench indoors as well?

I have a wounderful wife! She does not mind me doing a mess in our living room, as long as I clean up afterwards (so I always have the vac-cleaner around)!

The basic structure is completed!
Most of the structure is made using 3mm MDF, but there are a few areas where I have used 1mm plastic card. The MDF can be glued with PVA glue (wood glue), but I have mostly used thick CA glue. You can also reinforce the MDF, soaking it in thin CA (this is what allowed me to make such sharp bevel at the end of the side wall). Now I'll have to start adding details.

I hope to post more soon.
