Thanks guys. Your comments have lifted my spirits enormously, I really appreciate it.
Life is throwing some very difficult curve balls at the minute and it is difficult to stay motivated; I won't bore you with the details.

I have done a bit more since the last post, had a stab at the engine nacelles, fit isn't great! Completed the seats and weathered the front office, will post some pics tomorrow.

Regards

Chris

Guys

I am back at the bench on and off but I am now stuck and I wonder if I can call on you for help?

I am building the PE flaps from Eduard and I need to form part 3 in the diagram below



Currently this is a flat piece of PE, 4mm wide and about 90mm long and as you can see it needs to be formed in to a U shape.  I can't afford for it to twist during the rolling process so I am really struggling for a solution.  Any ideas?

Thanks

Chris

Yeah Chris, can you do this instead? Like the Spitfire flaps?



From memory it's 1mm styrene (or brass it says in the instructions, but styrene is much easier to work with) rod.

Hope this helps. [smile]


P.S. I don't have a clue how you'd effectively bend that otherwise.

Good call Simon. To be honest, if I use rod you won't be able to tell with the radius being so small.

Nearly completed first upper flap, will post a pic in a bit.

Thanks

Thanks all, I really appreciate your feedback.

The PE is going ok but some of it is ridiculous, I have given up on the bomb rack, I just can't fold it neatly and in some places the etch hasn't gone all the way through so it won't slot together.

I cut the styrene flaps out of the lower wing last night so no turning back now. I will post some more pics up later.

Regards

Chris
