Ricardo! I remove the wooden part when the tabs are glued.
I put on a sheet of silkpaper underneath so that the tabs dont get glued to the wooden mold.I just use a dremel and some grinding paper to get the right shape of the rod.

And your build continues in the right direction....forward and perfect!!

=D> Are those parts to make the landing gear movable part of the model or did you do it yourself?

The model is looking very good. I am waiting for see more.

@ Josve - understood! So, your models are not only in paper but, most probably, lighter than mine ;) :D
@ Tino - the landing gear is, at the moment, movable. However, it is a bit too thick to fit properly inside the wings. That's why I intend to glue it in the extended position.
Continuing with the wings, I assembled the upper, middle parts and the ailerons. It all went pretty smoothly :)

Ric,

your build is - as always - outstanding. I enjoy watching it and picking up all the neat little tricks you explain on the side...

Nice to hear form you, Michael, and thanks for your comment :)
The cockpit canopy is a GPM extra. The kit includes parts to glue both outside and inside. The last ones need to be slightly trimmed. Otherwise, they would be flush with the outer ones and not fit well in the fuselage.

Ricardo, most impressed with the meticulous use of glue here... as always, a pristine result.

@ John - You are right, the first rule when gluing is to use as few as possible ;)
@ Sparrowhawk - I'm glad you are enjoying the report, hopefully as much as I am enjoying the construction :) If you have an eye on this model, go for it. The colours are great and, so far, the fit is proving to be very good!

The last small assemblies - rear landing gear, exhausts and air intake. This last one is a bit too high to fit inside the engine cowling. I had to cut around 1mm at the base, so that the top is almost touching the cylinders.

Thanks a lot, bowdenja :)
The plane is not far from complete. Perhaps one of the most delicate tasks is to mate the fuselage assembly to the wings. I added some tabs inside the fuselage and another former, all at the back, to be able to apply some pressure when gluing. The front end needed a bit of cyanoacrilate glue, to make sure that there is no gap. It would ruin the fit of the engine cowling...

This is one beautiful plane you are building and the end result will be spectacular.
As for the jig - it is so simple and obvious idea that is amazing nobody came up with earlier!

I will have to raid my son's LEGO box for some suitable pieces :D

@ GreMir - thanks for the comment and, you know, useful ideas often come cheaply ;)

And yes, the plane is complete :yahoo:
Very interesting (but not easy) to build, good fit, great colours! GPM, you can be sure this my first plane from you but certainly not the last :D

Let's start with two general views...

...which is not glued. It can be removed easily, to show the engine.
And that's it. I hope you enjoyed the building report :)

Nice work.
