That's a nice bomber, the B-29 is legendary ! I really want to see that one completed !

Nice scratch-detailling, every-thing is looking sweet.

If i may : a light -silver dry-brush in the cockpit would highlight all the small details. See-thru the canopy... [wink]

A little update on my B-29 build. 

Closing of the fusalage



Wings and fins going together without any problems



To fill the fusalage seam i used melted plastic this time so it would be easy to rescribe any lost panellines. Its alot of work with sanding but if carefull the finish will be the best possible.



This is a boring and tedious job, sanding, paint, sanding, paint and scribe.....and again..



Here i got some micro sinkholes beside the seam, more filler and sanding..



Now Im into the wingsection, same thing there lots of job on the seam for the flaps.




Topside looks fine :-)





Underside is getting there :-)



This is the most boring time in the builds, the prepwork before painting. This is the time when patience sometimes run out on stubborn kits and then I turn to the stash for something new. Im sure you all been there.

But on this bomber Im heading for the paintbox soon.

Until next time: Have a nice build!

Nice to see you making good progress mate !

I agree with you too, the fill and sand cycle is a low point in any build but yours is coming along nicely mate. Have you enough time to get this finished ?
Remember Bobby has offered a months extension if its needed, so don't forget to vote in the poll if you need the time

Most of filling and sanding done, now it is time to prep for the basecoat.

First I want to show something i bought from ebay, its a superglue that will cure only in uv light. So I tryed to fill some ejectormarks this way and use the uv light to speed up everything.

The plan was good but i think my uv light is to weak, it didnt dry as fast as it was intended. But I made a rigg and left the light on. 





What a stupid place to put the ejector pin mark! Why didnt Academy put it on the inside of the wheel so it would be almost hidden?

I have made some more progress.

Cockpit windows is glued. I used Tamiya extra thin for this and if very carefull it will give a much stronger bond than ordinary whiteglue.




Fit is good, just had to fill little between the two glass pieces.

Engines are painted


And installed


And engine nacelles are glued to the wing, fit is not 100% and need just little filler and som clamps to force it to sit properly.





I also testfitted the landinggear and it fits perfect.
