Ok onto the ejection seat. This was modelled on the ACES seat and a little of the F14 and some of a British design I think.
I wanted it to be adjustable for my kids to get in so it moves forward and back and up and down. I found a great seat mechanism for $20 at a wreckers. The base design is built around the mechanism.
I made up a balsa model to check for look and size when I originally scale built it.
The original design was to have the missile pods on either side with the left side opening as a door. I simplified as the build time was getting too long.
I'd highly recommend using balsa to scale build anything that might be large and complex to give you an idea of what will work and its quick to assemble.
The design is based on this model from the Mechwarrior series, Vulture or Maddog
Marked up the sides with a pretty good guess on the shape using a flexible edge.
The side needs to be shaped to the finished product so you can then attach it to the other side and use the trimmer bit to create an identical side.
Using the straight edge to finish the edges for the base side..
The finished side for the base based on the balsa model.
I wanted to give the base a cast aluminium look so I added another identical side and marked up a web pattern before drilling holes at the radius of each shape.
Roughly cut to a few mm of the line.
