Merry Christmas!. Some time ago we presented you an impressive work from our friend MorTap, who showed us how to build Old West houses using foamed PVC. Now, once more, MorTap presents another awesome work, a Junkers Ju 52 in 28mm!.
Because the great versatility of the foamed PVC, in this ocassion I pretended to build something different, a Junkers Ju 52 in 28mm. But I decided to build it in a smaller size, in order to avoid to place an enormous element in the battlefield, which can disturb rather than beautify the game.
- 2 and 4mm foamed PVC
- High density cork
- Three plastic caps
- Four sticks of lollipops
- Small pin or button
Using scaled blueprints, we start cutting the different pieces of the plane body. You can find the sizes used expressed in centimeters. The foamed PVC is too easy to “sculpt” using a model knife or pencil.
Now, we start preparing the roof. “No sirve” = ‘it’s not necessary’ (the internal area). Note the roof is preceded by an inclined panel in both sides. Once the roof is completed, we prepare the cockpit. To simulate the rotors of the plane, I find these interesting caps from juice jars!. We will need three of them.
We use a button to build the rear wheel.
