New Concorde from Currell - Landor. 1/144

¡Hola Gerardo!

Very nice modeling, as usual with you, superfine precision. And, what a very nice and graphic livery - I must try to build that one some day.
I like that you are using glossy paper - it adds a lot of realism to this elegant aircraft model.

Great work - thanks for sharing!
your paper pal,
Bengt

Thank you, compadre Bengt!! Yes, glossy paper on laser gives a very nice uplift to the plane.

I forgot to add these pictures of the inner air intake.

Thank you Federico (by the way, you are my namesake, as my 2nd name is Federico XD).

Here's more to it.

I glue the wings to the airframe. Again, I'm using Tamiya tape to hold the wings while glue does its work.




In the meantime, let's prepare the inferior fairings.






And then in its place in the Concorde belly. The little paper pieces are enforcements for the fairing.






Now I can continue with the details on the rudder, adding the rudder actuators to the stabilizer. By the way, to a plane like this, one can think of the tremendous drag of these little parts, but it's not true. They were designed to work without adding drag, or to a very minimum.







Then the stabilizer goes to the airframe, using a support part for it.





More to come.

I see that you are applying your well-known paper odeling skill to this beautiful aircraft model, Gerardo. Looks like flawless treatment of the complex shapes of the engine exhausts and tail group.

Thanks for the words, Don and Thorst.

Don, that part reminded me of those polygons I used to build for the Math class in elementary school. This time, in the sound barrier realms!

More for the Concorde.

We have two options to build the cockpit.

One is with dropped nose, for taxiing, landing and takeoff. aterrizar; And upper nose for in flight traveling.
I opted for the dropped nose.









Now the wheels.

I did not build the wheels with Ralph´s diagrams, but in the way I

build my other wheels - cardstock sandwich.







Last photo is from the tail wheel.

Undercarriage looks excellent. Since you are building the landing gear, the dropped nose makes sense.

It's going to be a beautiful model.

I change gears for... the landing gear.





And this is over...









THE END

I hope you liked it. The model looks really good (thanks in most part to the designer, Ralph Currell). I have built all the Currell Concorde's and I can say they are really good models.
