A small project Iím working on since 2 or 3 weeks now : making a replica of a Herpa ATR72 in metal.
First, I disassembled the model made by Herpa.
Then I bought a sort of modelling clay with silicon to make a print of each part : the fuselage, the wings + engines, the tail and the stabilizer. At this point, I donít know how I will make the wheels ans propellers.
With a special metal (some of you knows perhaps what are the soldiers of PRINCE AUGUST, check on google how we do them, thatís the same principle) which have a low point of fusion, I tried to make a first model. I reworked on each parts with a cutter and sandpaper and here is the first looking of the model:
Iím happy with a such result even if it has some defects. Next step will the painting, and to find a way to make propellers and landing gears.
