    More stealthy work after dark. Everything measured and marked for cutting. Next daylight session- just cut!

    Finished up on the stringers on module 2 at the back. Bolted in a top reinforcing longeron on module 2, some strengthening brackets on module 1. Happy that module 1 is going to support itself on the end of module 2, so it's now onto skinning it with some foam and beginning to sculpt.

    Also, the port side switch for the cockpit arrived in the mail. A rare find and thanks to another Overclockers member for helping me with that.

    A good OCAU citizen just sent me this. Port side cockpit control. Awesome!!!

    You should have seen the markings he put on the box. Pissed myself laughing when I received it! I'll get a photo of it later.

    Tonight's work on the front intake.

    I've used ply as a face, pine timber as a frame, plastic bread crate as filter and aluminium angle and flat bar as the grille and louvres. Still got to get a stack of flat bar to finish the louvres.

    Sandbagger How do you make the templates for the ribs that make the shape of the viper.

    They are called formers and they were meticulously lofted from a 3D CAD model.

    This thing is absolutely awesome! I wish I had the space/time to be able to make something like this!

    This is fantastic! With the weight reduction holes (technical term?) it looks almost like you're building a real functional one!


    Now I'm curious about the markings! I want to piss... myself... too...? That came out wrong.

    I know, right? But if we all had those things, it would break the space/time continuum!
