My first ever venture into 1:32 and also the first time I deal with resin of this magnitude.

Hey Urban, ya wanna know it, hu?
That looks awesome to me! But why not in your scale?
Damn this is an abolute complete set!

It scares me but I eventually must leave the shallow water in the pool and learn to swim in deep water as well.
30. December 2014 at 14:24:36
Plus, If I get rid of this beast there's gonna be more room for 1:72 kits...
30. December 2014 at 14:25:49
I always like to build different scales, at first i was only into 1:72 but after my first big scale i was definately hooked!

Ooooo someone save me a seat I wanna watch

I will watch with interest. I'm planning to do the same and I'm wondering how parts will fit.

What a damn amount of additional work! But the result shall be rewarding!
And how does it feel to build such a big block of plastic?

I hope I'm gonna be able to finish this one before midsummer this year but everything is so big compared to what I'm used to.
19. February 2015 at 12:29:07
You will need a lot of paint, compared to your recent builds
19. February 2015 at 13:16:05
Oh yes! I've got four fresh Lifecolor bottles for this one...
19. February 2015 at 13:23:41
Do you have a mask for sanding resin or do you do it like me and sand wet?
21. February 2015 at 21:40:12
Yes and no! I've got a mask that I'm keeping forget to use. I try to use the saw as much as possible and use the vacuum cleaner frequently and when I sand I do it with slow strokes but I sand dry.

True! It's a new experience to tackle replacing resin parts. It's one thing just adding some resin stuff and a whole new world here with a lot of work to get it right and a lot of guessing. But the detail is stunning on the Aires resin.

Just looked at all of this resin madness....loving it all. I'm tuned in for the rest of the build!
24. February 2015 at 08:03:33
Thanks mate! I believe that "resin madness" is indeed the correct term here. I hope that I won't let you down.
24. February 2015 at 11:51:34
That gives one week of building at yet not one piece glued or painted so far on this build but I did manage to get some blood on the resin so it looks good for the future.
24. February 2015 at 23:19:41
hey urban.. its not resin madness without some blood
24. February 2015 at 23:29:17

"I ate his finger with some fava beans and a nice chianti"...
Sorry Urb, I couldn't resist it...(((
24. February 2015 at 23:42:00
No, I don't use my Dremel on the resin. GWS saw, exacto and beutyshop nailfiles is what I use on the resin.
25. February 2015 at 01:38:54
25. February 2015 at 01:39:06
First blood! Get well soon!
25. February 2015 at 07:21:30
What detail on those cans, drool, drool! Any photo etch involved in the project?
25. February 2015 at 08:17:12
This happens to me when I cut my finger...
25. February 2015 at 09:04:16
Speaking of Razors have you tried using a Mini Razor saw with assorted blades???
25. February 2015 at 09:10:15
That cut was healed to the next day, just a matter of letting it bleed a bit and then just wipe it off with the thumb on the same hand and keep going..
I've got a Dremel but I feel that I've got more control going by hand.
Not much PE involved in the build, just the fret that comes with the Aires cockpit.
I'm quite fond of the PE mini razor saws and use them quite a lot.
25. February 2015 at 10:04:59
True that as there's no technique that is absolute for all modellers. For a new builder it's a bit trial and error in order to find out what techniques that works best.
25. February 2015 at 10:40:18
A little late Urban but I'm pulling up a chair and watching the rest of the show. Looking good so far. Will there be more blood?
17. July 2015 at 16:58:11
Thanks mate! There could be more blood as there's a lot more work to do yet, especially as there's not been any work done on it since the last update. An eight year old promise got in the way plus I've had quite a lot of ache as well but I hope to be able to continue soon.
17. July 2015 at 17:59:50
Been there, DONE THAT. lol
But it's not modelling unless you can show some scars for your efforts.
08. June 2016 at 21:23:10
Yeah mate, it's not a proper build without a proper blood offering to the modelling Gods...
