Like I said on Papermodelers.com, this is very promising. I notice the wood reinforcement, and I do look forward to how you will handle the spoked wheels.

I hope the joy of building you feel now will keep. I know it is difficult sometimes.

more framing

Thank you all for the comments, and Jan for the link on how to make spoked wheels. Though I think I will try to use the photo-etch wheels that have been lying about forever, or they will never be used..

Have added the the rest of the outside framing.... controls in the cockpit.. made up the seats.. .. I added some scrap balsa to the fuselage for strength.. Always nice to use up material that's just lying about.

The fuselage is looking very good Peter!

And for the wheels....anyone know why there was only one spoked wheel on that plane?? Kind of strange!!

I like the paper-on-balsa method. Takes me back... and it's still a good way. - L.

Hi Leif..

IMO it really adds strength to the structure, plus gives me a better gluing surface in certain areas.. and I slowly get rid of scrape material thats been lying about forever..


Next up was skinning the fuselage.. I first sanded smooth any places that felt rough.. test fitted before gluing, and touched up with pastel chalks where needed. So far the fit has been spot on.

cowling

Cowling was added next. Bit tricky with the back being square, and the front oval shaped, but came out okay.. Really like the metallic printing of the metal parts, quite realistic IMO..

RE: cowling

Hi Peter,

Nice build!!!

I also will try paper-on-balsa method to get rid of scrap material that lying about in my room too and causes wife's complaint. This is killing two birds with one stone :D

Yu..

Killing two birds with one stone is always one of my goals... :]
Finished the tail fin and rudder.. pre-forming all the skins, and test fitting before any attempt at gluing. Again, all touch ups done with pastel chalk..

engine...undercarriage struts...nose cone

I've added the engine, but have left off the exhaust stubs until later. Working on the nose cone which is a tricky piece, because after gluing the petals together you have to cut slots in three places so it fits over the engine. Will reinforce the back with some CA before cutting.. Also,you can see where I added the undercarriage struts.. rigged with monofilament ..

prop & wheels

You can see here where I've laminated the different pieces of the prop together.. a coat of CA.. sand to shape, and base coat of color applied. I like this method for making the prop, as it looks more realistic IMO..

Showing the wheels made up before sanding and painting. The photo-etch could look better, but I'll go with this..

mounting the wing

1st photo shows the test fitting of the main struts.. 2nd shows the jig for mounting the wing to the fuselage struts.. After that, it'll just be adding small bits.. touch-ups with pastels.. and some light coats of "Future" to seal all the colors.

What do you use to keep the fuselage in place: Blocks of steel???


Thank you Sparrowhawk...... And good eyes you have, as those are blocks of steel about the same size as our cubes. I work doing construction, and I'm always picking up "this & that" , that I think might be of use. They definitely hold things in place... :)
