Re: I'm back...With a Vengeance.

Thanks, so much GFR! I'll be sure to put it to good use. It may have been out of your hands once it hit the web, but I couldn't have just ripped it and slapped it in without getting your permission, first. I don't know that I'd appreciate seeing a piece of my work sticking out of someone's profile without so much as a "please" or "thank you"--especially if I'd spent as much time or put as much detail into it as you do!


Thanks for the compliment, Goodwood. Designing the what-if aircraft was a nice excursion from the Frogfoot and Hind profiles that I had been doing. The fictitious Viking profiles have been a lot of fun to do. I've done about 32 profiles of the aircraft so far. This one started life as a good quality Ju 87 V4 line drawing and quickly got a P-66's R-1830 engine (that moved around about 20 times before landing where it did. The cockpit and rudder soon changed, but the cockpit went through at least half a dozen iterations before you got what you see now. The tail didn't change a ton, it just took a long time to do all the detail. It was modeled on the XF4U's tail. I then reshaped the forward fuselage and moved the wing back a bit to make up for the fuel and airframe changes. The prop came from a Dauntless as did the bomb cradle. The radio antenna and cockpit interior arrangement came from the Dauntless, too, although I drew them both from scratch (as I did much of the propeller spinner and hub). Finally, there were some more late game changes to the Ju 87's structure, most notably the XF4U-style oil coolers in the leading edge of the wing root, the XF4U-style cowl guns, the machine gun fairings in the wings, and the recontoured upper fuselage between the cockpit and tail.

It's a Frankenstein of Ju 87, P-66, F4U, and SBD elements that I think blend pretty well.

Thanks again!

Logan

Jeez... I cant believe that it's been 10 months since I did any work on this one. I think I better finish it before I forget how I got to this point.

Re: I'm back...With a Vengeance.

OOOH, looking good! I forgot all about this one!
One thing I'd really love to see are some highlights on the panel over-laps and highlights on the raised rivet heads. I think that surface detail would really go a long way.



But no hurry of course. I can see you've got a few things left to finish

Done quite a bit of revision on this one, and now working on the wing, which are the bane of my existence.

They do, they call them helicopters

Slowly moving ahead. I've re-done all the panel lines and rivets.

The more I look the more stuff that I see that I have missed.
