Sorry to hear about the fit issues with the fuselages, but a good solution to correcting it.
I agree with everyone else, the cockpit is amazing.

Thomas, keep them guessing about the diorama....never put your eggs in one basket. I have one in mind for the Dornier and Defiant that I am building (..and it will still be on the stand that came with the kit), all will have to wait. [thumb]

Ok i will do that. since the History of this plane is very short and incomplete, i guess i take some artistic license as well and present it like "It could have happen this way"

PS Thanks for the info Mike, photobucket sucks [frown]

i put on the panel on the underside of the fuselage. The Panel is a clearpart, so you have the choice to build the recon version. Anyway, i
painted the seamlines and the panels to see any imperfections and look what happened.



I put on the panel crooked. Now i dont know. Should i try get it off again, or fill and sand ? Any suggestions?

I hate when that happens, you could try get it off with a very sharp blade then re-glue, when the glue sets then just clean up with filler. If you just fill it now I'd be worried that over time the filler could shrink and or crack.
What ever you try I hope it works out

hmm..... See if the part will come off easily enough with a sharp blade, as Eoin suggests. If that doesn't want to work then fill, sand, rescribe. At least then you won't be stuck with the recon version if you don't like it lol.

Yeah tough one Thomas, I hope you get it sorted, however you do it. I'd try the sharp blade first too. For my part. [smile]

I got it. The trick was to push in the sharp blade at the joint line, but very gently. then move on a couple mils and push it in again. I then startet turning the blade slightly
and the Jointline started slowly to pop off. I tried to cut along the lines first, but that only gave me cuts around the fuselage which i have to fill now. What did i learn.
Take better care glueing your parts together. If you in a rush dont do it. Wait until you have the patience to do it.  Please have a look at the pics, it shows how good tamiyas extra thin
cements cappilary action works.



I hope you can see the small damages at the panel where i pushed in the Blade



And putting it back in the right place after sanding and dryfitting a bit.



Thanks for the tips with the sharp blade guys. This is rescued with minimal filling and sanding.

Good save on the panel Thomas, it takes a lot of guts to take a knife to a glued part like that, but you have got it sorted mate

I am real happy how the bottom panel turned out. A little filler and a little sanding.



On to the Top wing. The Fit is honestly said, poor. More filler and more sanding, which makes me worry because my skills in rescribing end up in a lot more filling and sanding.





Big nasty gaps underneath









The first filling didnt do it so i had to go over again. I used valejos putty, and florys skinny and spongy sticks. Hopefully i dont loose too much detail



now i am waiting for the putty to complete dry. I had real a good experience wetsanding the putty using a fine spongy stick. Tomorrow i will try rescribe.

Very nice attention to all the fit issues. All this work will definitely shows at the end. I'm sure you will handle the scribing just fine.

Well done on the recovery Thomas, that refitted part looks spot on! A few of us have experienced those nasty wing root gaps in this GB, it must be a systemic WWII Bomber problem! [rofl]
This is the laborious, boring stage of the build Thomas, I feel for you. But keep at it and ultimately good results will come. And there's some satisfaction in looking at an area that was full of gap, that is now all painted up completely undetectable. That's craftsmanship. [smile]
