Looking good. What are the basic measurements for that plane in 1/72. Has some great detail.

I did not think it was very large, considering the differences between that generation of planes vs WWII, then cold war, then modern. detail is really great considering the size! wow

Engine glued in at about the right height.

And some small bits glued to the Spandau's which I have since shaped.

I've started thinning down the main wing spars and that should prove interesting as I try to line up all of that later while trying to figure out how to get the radiator hoses lined up at the same time. Wish me luck on that little adventure lol.

Its not too shabby in the detail department, especially for its size. But some embellishments, I think, are in order.

I was held hostage last night when I slowly realized that my holding this little crate together while the glue was drying was taking a lot more time than I thought it should. It took some digging around while holding it together in one hand before I found a clamp to hold it for me.



I now have some alignment issues and I'm fairly sure its the lower wing that's out of place.



I trooped-on and attached the radiator hoses and added couple of greeblies to add a little more interest to the otherwise bland engine.




So that's where I'm at for the start of today. All of the major components are on and I just need to get a solid cote of primer over it. [smile]

Looking great. the alignment problem is easily solved. Display it at a certain height so that no one can look at it overhead like your picture. That was easy.

As I was cleaning up around one of the wing spars it came apart from the wing. Seems I didn't get it completely into position the first time. So I used some bits of sprue and reattached it. Fuzzy art pipe cleaners sort of make decent clamps for this sort of thing, lol.

An added bonus is that the wings now line up almost perfectly. Go me.

The radiator my be difficult to see, but I'm glad I added that extra detail.

You can also see the little hole that is in the main spar that attaches to the fuselage. I stuck some more prue into the void behind the part and melted it in with some liquid cement to make sure I have a solid connection there now.

I'll give all of this another 24 hours or more before I make a go at cleaning up all of the joined areas around the spars. Then maybe I can get to painting this thing?

Patience, I keep telling myself. Patience.

Thanks, Ted. I had one sitting around and it just seemed like it would be the solution to my problem lol. The fuzziness makes it nice and soft too.

If I have time tonight I'll start cleaning up those spar joins and fixing the other small mistakes so I can get some primer on it.

Thank you Neil! Thank you Ian! [biggrin] 

I was more than happy to have Ted along for the ride, but now you guys are here as well.  [biggrin]

I will try to get something posted tonight if I can. I am looking forward to getting these last few things taken care of and getting the primer on.

Primer is on and i'll take a closer inspection of the final repairs to the spars tomorrow. I've included a couple of items for size comparison. Yeah, its a tiny crate. lol




Have a good night, Gents.
