I am building a large scale RC model of the Blackburn Buccaneer, a UK 1950’s-1990’s jet. In order to get an accurate model, I am first building a 3D solid model in Rhino v4, which I can then section and develop the internal structure.
I have developed solid models for the wing, engine nacelles and fuselage body. The wing to nacelle has a very pronounced blend, and the fuselage to nacelle junction has a similar, but smaller blend.
I am having trouble building the blend areas. I have used Solid/Fillet Edge/Blend Edge, but not happy with the surface, and I can’t convert it to a solid I can then Boolean join to the nacelle/ wing solid object. It is a similar issue with the smaller fuselage/ nacelle blend.
The nacelle/ wing blend has a 5mm radius at the trailing edge and a 100mm radius at the leading edge. The fuselage/ nacelle blend has a 10mm radius.
My goal is to get a single, watertight, solid model of the fuselage/ nacelle/ wing to use as a basis for further model construction.
