That looks pretty good to me... I think I will have to warm up the card. One thing though - would it be possible to mould the part with the gun muzzle and panel in place? Were seams to clean up for future customers and it avoids having to glue a plastic piece to resin, and then having to restore panel lines.

Yeah, that was something I debated over. I originally wanted too, but it complicates things. For starters, I have to plug up the holes for molding, and it's kind of a tricky hole to plug. If there's much of an overhang of the mold into the muzzle, there is potential for the mold to tear. Not much of an issue on a small $1 mold that I have to replace every 5-7 pulls like my GE rear turbine part, bigger issue if I have to replace a $30 mold every 5-7 pulls. It also has the potential to be a trouble spot for air bubbles. I currently have to pour sprue on the front of the fuselage. I would probably have to put the pour sprue(s) on the rear of the part to improve the flow of resin into the muzzle. I didn't really want to jack with that area of the part and cause fit issues with mating it up to the kit fuselage/wing part.

I'll study it some more, see if I can come up with a solution.

Shawn

How about making the recessed area larger and then include the gun muzzle as a separate part? That way any seam filling is done away from panel lines that need to be kept crisp and clean and consistent with the Tamiya kit.

Default F-16D

Shawn,

You know what is going to happen, don't you? You will spend all this time and energy completing this F-16D project and Tamiya will come out in November with news of their 1/48th scale F-16D kit and a March 2011 release date.

That always happens, but I for one have bought stuff from Shawn for years now, he could probably put his kid through college, and I for one would rather buy a conversion from him with the quality of work he puts into stuff. I don't know how much he might ask for these if they do go into production, but I've got about 12 Tamyia kits and don't want to go out and pay $70 for another kit.

Looks great! I'll get one for sure, for an NSAWC jet I wanna do. It will at least get most of my conversion covered. Now if you figure out a way to make a BLOCK 15 tail and a way to fill in that chunk of space that's on top when putting on the shorter tail that would be gold!

I wouldn't jack with it....that muzzle is an awful fitting piece on the real jet and it can be attached to the rear of the resin piece with epoxy or card super glued.

whow, pretty interesting to know that this kind of " piece" could be so difficult to mold ! at the first sight it looks as an easy thing !
take your time....i'm sure it is going to be something very interesting.....
Thanks for the job
Pat

Curious if that dorsal also includes the correct vertical tail cap, as the Tamiya cap is obviously the larger, more square C/D type.

I think it's just the tailfin base Mike. Luckily the tail cap is easy to reshape from the Tamiya kit part - that's what I did on my own conversion. Still in progress while I try to finish off some red cars

Already in work, along with other A models backdates for the Tamiya kit.
