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

Hello !

The finished nose wheel + parts for the main landing gear.

The tires are ground down a bit at the bottom, I hope the air pressure is right. The elements of the suspension are quite small.

Now glue the chassis legs and attach the hydraulic linkage.

Now also attach the finished nose wheel. The first time on your own legs, fits !!!

best regards
Kurt

Hello to YOAV and Gary ,

thankīs !

Hello everybody !

Assemble and place the landing gear flaps.

Thus, the plane is slowly taking shape.

The parts for holding the middle external loads are prepared ...


... and installed. There have been some adjustment problems again.

If I'm not mistaken, I think the big central doors of the landing gear in the model's belly, should be angled out and not stand straight as in the picture.

Hello YOAV ,

there you could be right, but I have not seen any kink line at all.
That's why I'll keep it that way.

now letīs go on ...

For the middle suspension I build the Matra rocket and ...

place these on the suspension.

Kind regards
Kurt
