PBY-5A Catalina

Well, yesterday I want to build a model that isn't of my own designs.
I have a lot of models printed here, but to assembly...

So, I choose to assemply the PBY-5A Catalina, from Kancho Iliev. I get the version F: OA-10 os U.S. Navy.

On this thread we will have a lot of big grins :D Why? Because it will be something like how do NOT build a paper model.

My building skills aren't good, and my english either.

I'm using 90 grams paper for all the model. Yes, some pages say cardboard but... think like "I don't read it."

I chose this models but, at first parts, I have disapointed: it's hard to me to understand the instructions! But, I will go ahead. Maybe a plane will appear, or something to put fire.

I assembly my models in front of the computer, while I'm programming, drawing, modeling, sparing time at Second Life, or playing The Sims 2. :D
When I'm not working with resin castings, that make me to wrote some weird things (like that).

So, I say, assembling models in front of the computer, in a small space like in the first picture, isn't a good thing. But is funny!

My table is about 10 feet from my computer. It is a pain in the culo to go back and forth. I know what you mean.

I'll be keeping tabs on this one. I've had the same model burning up hard drive space for 2 years now. I've been waiting for someone to build it so I can tell if it's worth the sorrow.

Remember this is one of Kancho's early designs...........like the F-104 he was still learning and developing his design technique.

Not to discourage you, but just wanted you to keep that in the back of your mind as you build.............

So far so good!

You mean everbody doesn't work on a cutting pad in front of the monitor just above the keyboard??? I see you're playing safe with the mat next to your keyboard. I like living dangerously with the glue and the paper trimmings above it.

I've always held that a layer of paper snippings lying under the keys acts to cushion the descent of vigorous keystrokes, thus protecting against stress cracking and prolonging the life of the keyboard.....this is a good thing.

My mat is big, don't fit in the space under the keyboard .

I use a piece of heavy cardboard as a cut mat.

The building now is going very well. Finaly I understand the instructions.

Tomorrow I put new pictures.

whulsey, the mat close my keyboard is my mousepad. It's the only mousepad type that my optical mouse accept. The surface is good for a cut mat, maybe when it get very old and I need to replace, it will get some great finish.

My mouse pad have ink, glue, cat fur, and other thigs :D

Está começando a ficar bonito!
Go ahead with your work, difficulties are only challenges for improvement...
It looks good in this stage.
The cat fur could be a good complement to same model, he he ! (is the firstime I heard a mouse eats a cat and other strange things, he he)
Best regards
