Eagles Talon's 1/72 scale
HyperScle is proudly supported by Squadron.com
This is the 1/72 scale Northrop N-9m produced in vacuumform by the long forgotten company Eagles Talon.
It was my first vacuumform kit and to my amassment it was pretty easy to build.
The majority of scratchbuilding involved making landing gear. It was fully scratch built except for the main wheels.
The original canopy was missing so I made a new one using acetate film vacuum formed over a scratch built mold.
A pitot tube was made from medical needle, while propellers were carved from thick styrene sheet and finally spinners was turned on my Dremel tool acting as lathe.
