Pilatus B4-PC11AF
« on: October 15, 2015, 06:23:24 pm »

Hi guys this is my new project. I would like to create the first single seater airplane i flew, the Pilatus B-4 (i also chose it because of the simple design..)
This is an EXTREMELY work in progress.. The model you see here will likely get scrapped several times to start over again while i learn how to model, so don't expect it any time soon..
Here's some of my work on the model so far.






Hope you like my choice  =D

Continued on the elevator today.



Question:
Am i supposed to connect the two separately modeled pieces (Wing and Elevator) to the fuselage? If so, how would i go about doing it?
Thanks.

I am very sad that i have to pu this project on a hold right now :(

After discovering several flaws with the reference images and countless tries to eyeball it i have to let it go for now.

If i am able to find more precise reference drawings i might finish this project. Im sorry.

One question remains for me still. Am i supposed to attach all parts to the fuselage? Or can they be seperate? In dcs rhe cockpit for example, is modeled seperately and put into position afterwards. Thanks.

You can have loose components.

Good references is crucial. I can tell you that perhaps I have spent as much time looking for "that right image, in that right angle, that show that hidden corner", as modeling.

Oh no, i was prepared! Or so i tought... I have direct acess to the airplane.. Well.. Because i fly it :P

I cannot remember the name for it, but i cannot find good side, top, front reference.. And i could just forget about cross-sections..

Anyhow, many thanks for clarification :)
When season starts i will look around at the airport and see if i can find some good drawings in the maintenance manual.

I read that the Pilatus was Manufactured under licence by "Nippy" in Japan since 1978 as the NP-100 Albatross. Could you try cross referencing that?
