More progress since my last post the week before Christmas. Progress has slowed as other projects are diverting my attention.

The nose is done and the front and rear turret rings are installed. I had to put a piece of toothpick in the front ring to act as a brace while the liberally applied superglue cured. And then I had to paint the blue since this ink dissolves in all but pva glue...

The front window looks not so good. Neither does the window framework. Its all a mess when looked at up close. This is most definitely a yard project to be viewed from three feet (1 meter) away.

The thought of making the dome turret canopies front and rear is so not appealing since the patterns are petals. I've gotta come up with a solution I think, before new years eve eve. Which is where I stumbled accidentally into a solution....

Also got the wing frames built up. this bird is much larger than I had originally thought.

Oh and that "solution" gets some upgrades and refurbishing before it's put into use.

Looks like I need to play catch up again. It appears that my phone does not like my computer at the moment, so I cannot transfer picture files directly from it into the laptop hard drive. I've had to email the pictures 2 at a time to get them transferred. Frustrating.

Any way here is my progress. Fit is ok but is complicated by the feather livery trying to get the feather parts to line up. Found an issue with the feathers on the bottom. Orientation on the main fuselage piece is backwards on the right side behind the bomb bay.

I also upgraded my old Mattel vac-u-form machine and have been able to create clear canopies for the pilot, nose and tail gunner. They are not perfect but much better than trying to make them from the patterns provided.

Ok Greg. The K12 is looking great. But you piqued my interest with the Mattel vac u form upgrade. I have one, and it doesn't hold vacuum anymore. What did you do to upgrade it?
I'm intrigued!

VAC-U-FORM.com

Got a complete upgrade kit from above and a packet of clear plastic stock to go with it.

My understanding is that only one prototype was ever built and for whatever reason the decision was made to paint it to represent Russia's version of a Phoenix. the yellow marks are supposed to represent feathers and the big red roundels are the eyes.

Still have the old Mattel machine, I started with that a few years ago including the upgrade and never managed to get a good canopy. I still have a stack of the clear plastic made for it somewhere. Graduated to a bigger machine.

Great looking subject. I still don't see how it could fly with positive stability as it has no tail and I doubt they had the technology to control it otherwise.



Love the paint scheme


Isaac

This is very interesting plane for me due the camo which had to be in 30s of the last century as like as circus advertisement!
