Time for my first group build. Really looking forward to do this. I will be using Eduards PE interior for this one. Haven't had a closer look at the spruces but it look ok, the transparent parts are a little so so and I wished the instructions were a bit more clear about alternatives and paint schemes. Done a bit of research and decided to go for "20 Blue" built in 1944 and apparently painted in the "light brown/dark green/dark grey camo" with a lot more light brown than instructed in the factory drawings.





Some inspiration [smile]

Good luck with your build mate

It does look a nice kit there Doc, looking forward to seeing this one go together. It looks like it has a mouth with the bombadier canopy. [smile]

At long last someone is doing a Russian Bomber. Good choice.
The Ruskies certainly made their warfare based on 3 words "Bigger is Better".

Look forward to this build with intrest.

удачи

First of all thank you all for showing interest in my work. I've looked in the other build threads and you all have some amazing skills. I'm having quite a hard time expressing myself in english but I hope I make some sense [smile]

I'm still waiting for my PE but discovered that I ordered the wrong kit so a new one is on it's way this time I also ordered Eduards PE flaps think those look fantastic only hope I will pull it off, I'm not that experienced working with PE



In the meantime I've been working on the engines one au naturale to be covered and one painted and with some scratch building that will be on display.




I also cut the canopies (also a new one for me) for the cockpit and rear gunner so they can be dispayed open


So far the kit seems ok not up there with the best ones I built but a fair bit of detail and with the dry fitting I've done it seems to go together without to much problem

The engine looks great Doc, excellent work !
Working with photo etch is more frustrating than difficult, but if you take your time with it you will be fine, do you have a photo etch bending tool ? Small parts can be formed with flat oilers but im pretty certain you will need one for the flap set

The engine looks great, like the wires you added. And neat work on the canopies. Very brave to cut into them. I'm not sure I would pull that of :-0

Mine always break or look like crap when I cut them. Nice job Doc! That was brave and well executed.

Engine looks great Doc, and yeah, a brave move cutting up the canopy, I wouldn't even think of going there. lol
I don't know if it will help but I did a blog on the Spitfire flaps, you might get some useful info out of it for yours, they look awesome btw.

Cutting up canopies, wow.

Love that rust on the engine, you need loads of this on most of the Russian War Machines.

I got the one from RB production that looks like a hinge, hope it will do the job, only tried it for smaller parts
