the PVC pipe and thin wood to the size you want to make the
hull. The PVC will be the sides and the wood will be the bottom.
Use epoxy to join the pieces.
Use sheet styrene to make the top and rear of the hull.
I used metal "L" brackets epoxied to the corners
to reinforce the corners. Cut a length of pipe in half longways
to make the front of the hull and glue into place. Drill a
hole near the bottom of the front piece for the Robotix cockpit.
Join the pieces with epoxy and use putty to fill any crevices
between the sections.Cut off the hinges from the T-16 for
the lower wings and epoxy them
to the hull.
off the top wing of the T 16 and epoxy it to the top of the
hull. I used bits ofstyrene to make the joint stronger.
Mount the non-metalic flex connectors to the rear to make
the engine bells. You can scribe panel lines in the hull with
an x-acto knife and a steel ruler to add detail. Now spray
paint the entire ship. I painted the lower wings separately
then attached them before I weathered the ship. Finally add
any other details and weathering as needed. I decided to cut
a hole in the top of the hull to show engine parts.
