Well, I'm sorry writing bad about white glue. Once I placed the all central struts between the fuselage and the center of the upper wing, the plane became so solid that I can hold it by the upper wing without fear of damage.

I placed the rear machine gun and the exaust, too.

By the way, where can I find a paper model of "The Dragon and his Tail"?.

As to the B-24"The Dragon and His Tail", John Dell has done a very nice model of that one. Used to be available on EcardModels….maybe he can be convinced to put it back there.

Thanks, Sergio, thanks Rock55!
Today I placed the last strut and painted them. And placed the first wire, but first comes the torpedo and the tail wheel.
If you see the picture, the central struts, the ones over the fuselage, are painted dark green, while the ones between the wings are painted sky. It has to do with the original camouflage, it's not a mistake. Even more, the lower wing must be painted a bit clearer than the rest of the plane, compensating the upper wing shadow.
The white silouette is the beginning of my 1/72 Supermarine Stranraer. It's a plan that I hade some time ago, but there was never the time.
I'm not promising that I'll finish it, or that I'll publish all the pieces, but my idea is to make enought printed pieces that I'll can make the rest of them from scratch.
So, if someone who is reading this thread wants to finish the parts, or recolor them, be yourself. The only caveats are that: a) the model must be free, b) the model must be at least at 1:72 scale, c) the model must say that I was the original designer, and d) I'll like to know when somebody makes some change to the model to be able to download it.
So, going back to the Swordfish, soon you will see the torpedo, tail wheel, and oil tank cap.

Assembling the torpedo. The torpedo crutchs are very different than the ones show in the original paper model.
Found (and placed) an air intake between the main landing gear.
After that, the rear wheel, the wires and the decals.

The 3 sheets of the Stranraer were resized to 1/72 scale (If you print them as letter size). Soon I'll start to convert the drawings to parts, first the internal reinforcements, later the tail, wings and finally the fuselage and engines.

Is the flying boat next?

I have printed a P-38, an U-2 and the Graft Zeppelin. But I like the Stranraer. So it's a draft.
After being burned repainting planes for the Flight Simulator, I made the rule that I'll never put rules myself about how, when or what I'll do in my relax time, because then it stops being free time and becomes work time.
So, definitely maybe!

Placing the wires and the tail wheel.
And just when I was getting ready to take the last picture, I had a box with 3 planes in one hand and the Swordfish in the other. I tripped and the Swordfish fell down. Luckily it seem that just one propeller broke, and the interwing struts weakened and will need another season of glue.
So, white glue isn't a strong as I would like, but is stronger that I feared. And I can say that today is a lucky day, because, well, just a bit of glue!

Wires, wires and more wires.
About the fall of the Swordish, 5 of 13 struts jumped, but the wing hold. It was reglued and it's fine again.
I'm placing the radio masts, and the decals and another identification marks, too.
So... maybe I'll finish it today.
About the Stranraer, I'm making the inner structure. Once finished, I'll print it, test, and start with the skin. Remember the rules if you want to help/finish to design the model: a) the model must be free, b) the model must be at least 1:72 scale, c) the model must say that I was the original designer, and d) I'll like to know when somebody makes some change to the model to be able to download it.

And the Swordfish is finished! I believe this is the plane that I had enjoyed more while assembling it. Maybe more than the Ju-88 and the Fw-190a.
Yes, I've made others more classiers, more striking, but I love this one more.
I'm including all my 19 paper planes at 1/72 scale I had made. Ok, 16. There are another 3 that I gave to friends of mine.
The letter "Q" is in low visibility, but it can be seen in some side views. The lower wings badges were hand painted. Some Swordfish with this color scheme supresed the badges, some had them. I decided to let them, because it's more possible.
