Hello Kurt,

Do you glue the strips one by one (3 on each side)? I'd tend to glue them together before gluing progressively to the wing/fuselage. Maybe this method can make it easier to disguise the joints between the strips. Anyway, it is always a tricky assembly...

Nice job, Kurt.

I am trying to see what is dissatisfying about that job. Looks awesome to me!

Cheers,
Dan

Hello ,

@ ricardo : I glue the strips one by one , but I think it would be better to glue
the three parts at first togheter , and than make it in one step to
the wings .

Thanks to Elliot and Dan

.............

Glue the baffles only half-way at first, spread with a toothpick and close completely after drying, and place at the bottom of the wing.

The parts for the nose wheel, I start with the upper part.

The small cavities I fill with undiluted glue.

Best regards from Styria

Hello everybody ,

Center the discs for the nosewheel, glue and allow to dry thoroughly.

The suspension fork is again a filigree part.

Now the wheel is sanded and colored with Indian ink.

Best regards
Kurt
