I have yet to find a video that shows the production process for fuselage panels, but I did find this while searching on YouTube last night:



Absolutely fascinating! It's amazing how smooth they can make it!

It's amazing how far they can actually strrrrrrrrrrrrrrretch that aluminum without it tearing or ripping apart - I know about stamping aluminum and such having worked in the automotive industry. Aluminum is very widely used for automotive hoods and body panels these days, and naturally is lighter than steel body panels, which of course is better for overall fuel economy, as in the aviation industry.

So now that we've seen glimpses of the nose and tail of your model, how far along is the rest of the fuselage, wing and engines? If you don't mind me asking, do you have an estimated completion date for this masterpiece?

Hard to say (as my family knows all too well), but I'm really shooting for year's end. It would be nice to start 2014 with this project behind me hah. Anyway, you've inspired me to put this little graphic together, which I'll update as the project progresses.

Hey thanks MP ... that's a great diagram showing your progress! How long is the finished fuselage length? And what scale is your "work of art"?

I'm not sure if you're making this statement in "jest" or in sarcasm, but if you are, I would challenge YOU to try to accomplish a FRACTION of what ManilaPlane has done.

The fuselage is almost exactly 4 feet long, which works out to about 1:60.

I agree, M404's comment is one of the schittiest I've ever seen on this forum.

Sorry guys, I was trying to make a less obvious statement about the artists skills....everything else had been said already and I should have just left it at what had already been said. I cannot apologize enough for bringing the wrong impression on the skill set held by manilaplane. I was attempting to suggest that his level of work is comensurate with the detail of mfr the real thing.

Now as far as my comment being the schittiest ever seen on this forum, I think that might be an over exageration to the same degree as my attempt at humor missed the mark by a wide margin.

After re-reading it, I can see where you were coming from, as far as being sarcastic and all ... shoulda gave you the benefit of the doubt!

Thanks so much, and I'm glad you're "subscribed"! I can't wait to have this project done!

Thanks!!

Anyway, a few tidbits. I've been wrapping up the body (yea, been saying that for months now, right? ) and it seems that the final few details take the longest! Luckily, I "just" have the cargo doors left to do. I'm really hoping to be painting (or shall I say "glossing"?) before the end of the month but October is quickly approaching. Gah!

Here are a few pics of a new cabin sidewall that I installed yesterday. I rebuilt this section from scratch cause the old one was a mess from all the modifications, and I think it's the best/smoothest set of sidewalls I've produced so far! This marks the completion of the (pax) interior, so that's exciting

Your patience and attention-to-detail is mind-boggling MP. I just don't see how anyone can have the patience to do such intricate installations of "parts" on such a large scale. Even if the model were die-cut from Manila paper, the assembly process would be next to impossible for all but the 99th percentile of model builders with the requisite hand-eye coordination skills.

I think the "sky's the limit" (no pun intended) for you - you can probably do the same with many other mediums and create some amazing "art" ... which is truly what it is!

manila plane, just thinking today..
your work is totally awesome, but have you ever considered to build it as cutaway design?
i can imagine that after you have finished all of your work, then all of your brilliant works of the details, i.e. cabin, cockpit, landing gear, engine will all vanish behind those covers..

Already got it covered hehe. The entire thing opens up to reveal the interior... and just to set your mind at ease, a few pics You can see the locking pins along the floor line (and the sockets along the base of the hinging wall section... I think that's what it's called?)

Here! Here! This model MUST be on public display in a quality aerospace museum somewhere ... OR in a glass showcase up at Boeing's Everett facility for visitors to see on a daily basis when they are visiting for the Everett Factory Tour.

In any event, be SURE that others outside of DAC get to see and appreciate your HIGHLY-unique mastery of the medium.

My sentiments, exactly! This is worthy of display in a museum, whether it's at Boeing, the National Air and Space Museum, MOMA...take your pick, manilaplane. I'm sure they would all love to have it and on your terms.

I agree, this 1 of a kind model to be displayed at any aviation museum for the general public to admire would be Awesome! I vote for the National Air and Space Museum . Cheers! T7

WOW. Guys... I'm just blown away by the responses! Thank you thank you thank you!! You all are so awesome!

I would absolutely love to have this model displayed somewhere! It's a bit difficult for me to even think about that at this point, cause there's just so much work left to do and I'm focusing on getting it wrapped up ASAP, but yes, it would be great to be able to show it off publicly. I think it should be seen by the "masses" because I think cutaways in general are super interesting and they help people understand the relationship between the inside and outside of a structure (duh?)... not to mention the sense of scale!

Anyway. Thanks again for the many kind words, and I hope to have a painting video up at some point in the next month..... I'm sure you can tell I'm not the best with time management :/

I'm doing the Air India livery (the cabin is configured as such)... I posted some pictures of the tail on the first page so you can get a sense of what it'll look like. It's going to be a crazy amount of work to pull it off!

My cousin works at Boeing; or I think she still does? I totally agree with your statement, and I will reach out to her. Maybe if she's still employed with them, I can send her this thread. However, I will ask for manilafolder777's permission first, prior to any communication with Boeing. Cheers! T7

Hey, by all means, if you can get it touch with someone at Boeing I definitely wouldn't complain! I intend to (try to) send them pictures when I'm done but I have no problem with you forwarding a link to the thread for the time being.

Thanks!
