I am building a model that is replaced by a better kit. I have an old
vacuform that was started a while back. Later I obtained a more
kit. However, the fact I have an excellent reference book coupled with
open the cockpit of this aircraft led me to see this vacuform kit as
guide for work on other vacuform kits I have that still are the only
a particular aircraft such as the XP-54 kit I have.
Here is my question. How does one handle the measurements of the many
views I have in the TBY book? The basic lay out is dealt with with
eg, how long is the aircraft, wing span. Yet I am stumped about thing
photos are drawings taken at an angle. Is an educated guess the best
the TBY is a USN aircraft should I look for similarities for better
aircraft. Perhaps finding out how big a seat , a radio, a throttle is?
