Itís been a year since Gerardo finished his model, so I guess itís my turn to tackle this beastie. I am going with a different build strategy, start at both ends and work towards the middle. This allows me access to the interior of the model to help create strong and smooth joint seams. The design of the model is quite unique. Lots of places where you cut out parts just to glue a similar shaped part in its place. It could be simplified, but itís a great model for the building obsessive fraternity. Unlike Gerardo, Iím building it as an in flight model. The landing gear and gear bays are very well designed but I already have the Ed Force One 757 built, and it has no landing gear. So this one will be gear up to match.

Looking good so far.

Interesting approach in building from ends towards center.

Makes complete sense, and is so completely obvious that I would have never thought of it...

Looking forward to more progress!

The fuselage is basically finished. The fuselage joint that goes through the ďTĒ in the word TOUR is not glued yet so I can fit the fuselage into a box that I have to travel with. I glue steel washers into the fuselage so the magnets in the stand will grip the model and keep it in place. But I seriously misjudged the balance point on this model. You can see how far aft the balance point is, even without the wings and tail pieces added. The washer in this model is about the midpoint of the wing to fuselage glue joint. Now I have to figure out a way to move the washer back a few inches. Definitely put nose weights in this model if you plan to have it on its landing gear.

Hey Juan, I can't find it after going through Bruno's files, maybe I have missed it somewhere. Can you please direct me to the right spot?

Thanks, Knife. So it's not based on Bruno's work but Jule's. Another great repaint by Gerry1966. Thanks also to them.

After browsing through another thread on the Iron Maiden, there's actually another version by Bruno. That will go into my intended 1/xxxx collection.

Iím slowly getting this model done. Iím not sure if the designer was an evil genius, or just evil. Lots of places where 6 or 7 parts could have been combined into one part to make a stronger model with fewer seams. One of the joys of paper modeling is seeing how different designers figure out how to model a subject. This model was designed by an artist, not a structural engineer. Still, itís fun to see some creative solutions offered up by different cultures. That being said, tonight Iím working on the wings. I have a small twist in the right wing that I hope to massage out before finishing. The wings are attached to the fuselage with a simple butt joint. I would have liked to put in a spar through the fuselage but Iím trying to stay true to the design.
