When I built my 25, I struggled to come up with a way of cutting plasticard into discs. It had me stumped for days ! and then I came up with a real simple solution... 4pence tooling

Step One

Super glue four 1 pence pieces to a strip of styrene.


Step Two


Using a blade score straight lines round the penny, then with a pair of pliers snap the surplus off. You need to hold the penny to the card.

Step Three

Dress the edge with a file using the penny as a file guide (yes you may damage the penny !)


Step Four

A final tidy with a nail emery board. and the front edge is given a slight rad.



Finally

Flip over and solvent weld a tube on the back, this tube has an Outside diameter the same as the Inside diameter of the one the cab




Then its a push fit onto the body





The inside of the cab has also had a coat of paint to reduce the yellow glow !

That's a splendid bit of scratchbuilding, it looks really good. All you have to do now is figure out a way to make it sound like a Huey on full throttle lol

It may not seem like a big job, but it wasn't half fiddly !!

I have applied the orange line round the top, I considered painting it but chickened out. So I stopped off at my local sign makers, and cadged an off cut of orange vinyl tape, its self adhesive and just needed cutting into 1.5mm strips.






Note that Pointing Man has turned up too !!!!
