I envy your skill at cutting and shaping those tiny parts, such as elevator horns, Gordon. The end result is absolutely perfect.

I figured it was about time to start working on the landing gear so the Hayate can stand on its own legs. I begin here with the landing gear covering elements.

The build progress is painfully slow right now, as I am trying to enjoy the very short New England summer - but I manage to find an hour here and there to play around with paper and glue. I find it oddly therapeutic. I am starting to close in on this one, so completion will hopefully be soon. The real question will be: what to build next? I have a couple more Halinski's lying around waiting to be cut up, and I'm trying to decide between:

1. Focke Wulf 190 A-8
2. Spitfire IXc
3. Curtiss P-40e

any suggestions?

Well, if you don't have another Japanese aircraft in the queue, my own preference would be to see you apply your exceptional skills to the P-40e or the Spit IX.

Focke Wulf 190 A-8 (because it is not an Me-109)

After preparing and cutting out the main landing gear coverings, I decided to go ahead and build the rear landing gear assembly in its entirety. There were a few small parts to cut, shape and glue -but surprisingly, the most challenging part was sanding and shaping the rear wheel itself. These little bits of detail on the exterior are what start to really bring the aircraft to life.

Ok, back to the main landing gear. I made the wheel/tire assemblies in the following steps:

1. cut the disc shaped elements from the laser cut frame sheet.
2. laminate them together in the proper order
3. I then mounted the wheels to a dremel tool and spun them while sanding, to remove the "stepped" look.
4. I then coated the sanded wheels with CA glue and let it dry to harden them and eliminate the "fuzzies" from the sanding process.
5. I followed up with a final sanding with fine grit sandpaper.
6. then, 2 coats of matte black acrylic paint.
7. the wheel covers themselves were then glued into the tire elements.
8. a light coat of clear acrylic spray was applied.
