Hi Ricardo,

Flimsy... yes, they are too beautiful like beautiful lady. You have made them too beautifully. I advise you from next time you should make support a bit less beautiful so that they will be able to support main gear.

@ Keith - yes, I use the knife for almost all the cutting. I have no compass cutter. May I ask you if you have one and if you find it precise?
@ Yu - correct :D. I'm not counting on them to support the aircraft. Hopefully, the main legs will do the trick. The force will be mainly axial and that one is no problem. For the bending moments, I'm counting on a good glue and the extending wire bits. They will be left as long as possible to fit inside the wing structure. I considerably reinforced the wing structure at those points, with extra layers of card...
@ Norm - wow, I see your keyboard is the only limit :) Outro abração!

The front landing gear doors could have just 3 parts but no, they have 28! Why make it simple when you can make it pretty? =)

Hello Ricardo,

I did have a compass cutter a long time ago but did not find
it that accurate unless the card was fairly thin.

The new 1/33 scale B-25 Mitchell has been released from
Orlik... another one for 1/16th scale!

Thanks for your reply & best regards,
Keith.

That's what I expected, Keith :( No holidays in sight for the old and trusty knife...
I decided to make the airbrakes mobile, as seen in the pictures. Some tabs were added to glue the inner assembly to the fuselage skin. A small, thin, paper bit serves as the 'hydraulic' hinge.

Hi Ricardo,

Its just like looking at the rreal thing,absolutely superb.
Can ask you if you use coloured felt pens to touch in the
edges of all the cuts or do you mix paints for that?

I have just the sheet now with the wing internal structures
to re-size then am all done on that side and will re-size the
coloured sheets later on but will do some test prints first.

Thankyou for the pictures they are most welcome and will
greatly help my construction soon.

Best regards,
Keith.

@ Keith - yes, I use coloured pens. ABT dual brush pens, to be more precise. They have a huge range of colours to choose from but, sometimes, getting the correct luminosity is more important than the exact colour. That's why a good range of grey pens will do most of the work...

The fin on the first picture is not yet glued. The upper skin parts look too small and that is almost sure to give me problems latter :(

Hello Ricardo,

Great progress,the build goes well for you.
I know you have some difficulties but they do not
show as your work is so sharp.

I have a major problem in scanning the coloured parts
as the definition is not as clear as i would have liked
and so face a major stumbling block at this stage.

Thankyou for the tips on the coloured pens.

Best regards,
Keith.

@ Yu - :) :) :) :) :) :)
@ Tino - I agree, on the fuselage. No so much on the smaller parts because they have a solid colour and a black outline :(
@ Keith - yes, on average it is going well :). I had no problems with the ventral tank.

Great job Ricardo. Overall the model looks great, but you've done an especially nice job on the little details. It takes true skill to cut such small pieces so neatly and accurately.

Thanks for your comment, Dustin :)
As expected, I had a serious problem at the rear part of the fuselage - the upper skin parts are too short. Part of the problem was solved by cutting a bit on the underside of the internal formers. However, there is still a very noticeable gap :(
At the extreme rear, the tail bumper helps to hide the misery. Hopefully, the lateral gaps will be more or less hidden by the tailplane fairings...

That's what I did, Royaloakmin, but there is a limit to that - the jet exhausts! I can't sand them...
As you can see in the first picture, the tailplane fairings did cover the gaps but I didn't manage to get a vertical surface for the tailplane to move. As a result, I glued it. It is not really a drawback because, being unbalanced, it would tend to drop at the back.

Hello Ricardo,

What can i say but more praise for your museum quality build!
This model looks as perfect as you could possibly obtain from
this kit,well done.

All of the hours and attention to detail shine through and i
look forward to seeing the cockpit & nose section attached.

The undercarriage units alone must have caused some tough
times during the construction but add the finishing touches.

Best regards,
Keith.

Thanks a lot for your comments, Keith :)
The landing gear doors are already in place.
The plastic canopy is an accessory for this kit and it proved very precise. I always cut the plastic as much as I can, so that there is some paper left on the outline, to put glue.

Ricardo,your very welcome.
Credit where it's due,and that nose undercarriage looks just as if
it could retract!

Superb work and yes the canopy looks very inch the real thing.
Ive had some big problems with my model so far and have had
to re-order a new one but that won't be available until August
so will have to wait a while but never mind (a long story).

Thankyou again for all the pictures Ricardo of what is coming to
the end of what looks a very enjoyable build.

Best regards,
Keith.

Keep on glueing, it's only a short way to the finish.
