Can I change the thread title? How?

I used sewing wire reinforced with glue, and sometimes, paint.

"My 1/72 Scale planes" feels right. Thanks!

I started the Beech Bonanza V35 (not 36 as I believed) and is going fine.

I cut out the wings, engraved the metal joins and rivets with a metal point, reinforced with thin cardboard and glued the parts. I let the landing gear doors open to make the plane the more realistic possible. Tomorrow I will place the pictures, once the fuselage is assembled

Ok, here are the pictures.

I started with a Fiddlersgreen Beech, rescaled and printed it. Then, I cut the wings, and inside the wings, the landing gear doors. Then reinforced with thin cardboard, engraved the metal joins and rivets and glued.

After dry, painted red and continued with the fuselage.

Here, I reinforced the windows and cut them. I confess that I must had painted red before gluying the acetate windows, but fortunately it's almost the same.

I'm planing to finish the Bonanza before the next weekend, with more changes like an improved landing gear and propeler.

The ones who follow my post know that I lost my camera and my cellphone was pickpocket all in a month, so I'm using an antediluvian camera to take the pictures and they become blurred sometimes. Sorry. But I hope to solve this problem in some months.

There are 28 planes in the queue to be made, so I have work for some years. Next one can be the DH-82 Tiger Moth or the Fairey Swordfish or the Saab J-35- Who knows?

I assembled and glued the tails, and painted almost all the fuselage.

Now I'm working in the wheels and the propeller. It remains to do the white stripes on tails, wings and laterals, and the landing lights in the wings.

The landing gears will be made with cardboard and electric wire.

The assembly is finished, just remains the white lines and the propeller tips (and the lights!). I had to include three screws in the nose for counterweight. The landing gear is made from electrical wire.

By the way, the red color is from a real plane, a F35 Beech with the N6F id.

Here is some data:
Aircraft Data N6F, 1955 Beech F35 Bonanza C/N D-4368

I expect to finish it this weekend.

The Beech F35 is finished. Sadly the pictures are a shame, sorry. When I have a good camera I'll post better pictures

I arrived to two conclusions: First, decals over paper models aren't compatibles, and second, it's not the same to paint a ship or submarine than a plane.

So, my next airplane will be printed in color.
