How To Make - Clydesdale Military Transport

General Tips, Material and Tools

Impression Tips:

For better results to print in a printer paint jet or laser in the largest possible resolution. The model in the scale 1/200 is configured to be printed in A4.


The best paper is Opaline or Filecoat whith thickness 160 g/m2 or 180g/m2 for 1/200 scale and 120g/m2 for 1/1000 scale.

You eat photographic they can also be used, but reminding that should be gluing with CA glue.

Necessary tools

Cutting matt (optional), normal cutter, cutter Xacto type, tip scissors and seam scissors, metal ruler, CA glue (optional), white PVC glue, spatula for demarcation (to do fold lines), tweezers, pens and pencil to color corners or white lines.


Assembly Pieces
All pieces building.

Step 1:

Make the nose. He is composed of three sections, care with the alignment of the textures, use the formers 1 for the extremity of the nose, the former 3 for the piece of the middle in his base and the formers 4 and 5 for I finish it ring.


Step 2: Make the rear section fuselage, careful with the back forms that are straight in the white areas, in some cases it can be interesting to glue tabs inside to reinforce the unions of those right angles. Leave to glue in the END of the process the former 14.


Step 3:

Make the canard's carenage.

Step 6:

Make the central fuselage ring, careful with textures alignament, for the center ring use formers 10 and 11, for the front junction ring use former 8 in rear, for the rear junction ring use former 13 in rear. After gluing the rings according to the pic.


Step 7:

Glue all fuselage sets.

Tips: In case they be openings or no alignment for badly glues, it can be necessary to do mendings or amendments, these can be made printing a second set of the model in thickness among 75 to 90 g/m2.


Step 8:

Make the radar dome and glue in the nose.


Step 9:

Make the front air intakes.


Step 10:

Make the front fuselage lateral ductos.


Step 11:

Make the lateral ductos of the ring central care with the forms.

Glue the intakes, and front ductos...


Step 14:

Glue the center ducto...


Step 15:

Make the jump engine, careful with roundel shape and rear section form.


Step 16:

Step 17:

Make the canards...



Step 18:

Make the wings...


Step 19:

Glue the canards in fuselage carenage. Care with the diedro that is negative.

Glue the inferior tail in the rear fuselage, make a hole in white area for fitting or glue.


Step 34:

Making the display according to the choice of the scale of his model of Clydesdale.


Model Completed

Another Tips:

  • Use hidrocolor pens and color pencils to cover eventual lines or white corners.
  • The use of acrylic paint to do whatering or to cover white parts also back a lot of advantages in the finish, the prototype of the pictures display a whatering simulating one burns in the nose for atmospheric reentrance.
  • For the 1/700 and 1/1000 model the use of formers is optional.
