Making Your Own Hatches & Doors Page 2

SU-27's have been the rage of late in the aero's for sale market place. I'll use this plane form for this how to. I shall describe a process by which scale modelers can easily create fiber glass and resin panels, hatches and doors, or what ever surface feature desired, easily.

1. Select photographs which show detailed view of door, hatch, or panel you want to
    replicate.
2. Select a "clear" black on
white (3) three view drawing which shows the panel,
    hatch or door.

For the purpose of this article, I am using a poor (3) three view line art to illustrate how easily this process can be accomplished. You'd be wise to contact your sanctioning organization and utilize their preferred (3) three view, if one has been designated as the competitive reference point for your construction project.
