E3G Sentry and more

Post by HuwMorgan »

This is my attempt at the Academy re-release of the E3G Sentry, - it still builds up nicely. Also, a work in progress, an Aero L29 in tiger (zebra?) stripes - stripes courtesy decals produced for (finger) nail art!

Inspired! - confirms my belief that modellers never look at anything without thinking of a use for it in their models!

The E-3 does come up nice too doesn't it?

Nice! Have often been tempted by the E-3.
How is the nose?
I’ve heard that the shape is off and really needs a replacement.

Dave, Yes, the nose does look a bit stubby when viewed from the side, and slopes downwards from the windscreen a bit too much I think, although it's a bit hard to tell with the lump of the sensor pod underneath. I guess it could be improved by more sanding of the top surface.
