I started the construction of Kartonowy Arsenał P-47D-11 6/2011 about seven years ago but soon I stopped working on it after I built a half of fuselage. Recently, I reopen the book and make a little progress. Here is my construction report.
I prefer working on outer skins of fuselage first without putting skeletons or backbones. In that way, each skin parts could be assembled without any step height difference and at the end, the whole body would be smoother, not showing any steps or void.
This P-47D-11 model has one big skeleton assembly as shown in the picture. The one body of skeleton is difficult to be inserted into the fuselage. The tail part of the skeleton was separated and built.
The tail skeleton got inserted.
One more fuselage skin is assembled.
