The struts saga is almost done...

I glue the external Struts, but only the inferior leg, for repositioning and correct align wing...









All struts need a small corrections, mainly small cutings for adjustment...

Until the next update...

You get the engines put in that sucker will be ready to fly!

Are you having to put any wires inside the struts for support? Or did I miss that in an earlier post?

Thank's my friends!

John, in page 1 I explain about the use of orthodontic rigid wire, I use in floater struts. The advantage is a round format, but not friendly for glueing.

Regards my friends!

I really appreciate your careful and meticulous building techniques; particularly the use of foam in various sizes and pins for stabilizing the model in correct position while you're working on it. A lesson to be remembered. - Leif

Cool

After a little delay, the building continue:

One of the features not present in the model is central line struts, I scratchbuilding with wire and painted in royal blue (acrilyc)





I make the fuel line and install the central cabane rigging with wire...



Talking about wires, I glue all in the interplane section...





Tail wires...



My favorite material is cirurgical #0005 wire, I cutting in segments and glue with CA glue in gel...

I making the engine cownlings...





Finish cownlings...





I make the propellers, but not like the hub (simple) so I started a scratch I sculping and sanded a toothpick for made the hub, and propeller connector I made with 50gsm paper scrap...



I painted with acrilyc and glue in the place...



Another missing detail is a radio antenna. Some photos this feature is show in Byrd plane, but in others no. For increase the confusion all plans (Paul Matt and a russian magazine Aero) in my references show this detail. I decide install the antenna. I made with heavy cardboard, and glue with CA.



The piece are painted with acrilyc, and wire antenna is made with polyamide line, this was shredded and smeared with CA glue , for rigidity. The metal wires are not suitable for large parts.



I scratch the rudder floaters. And my model finish.
