I'm a bit dissapointed. Today I assembled the hull, and is slighty distorted. Let's see what happens when the rest of the pieces are placed.
Maybe Zio expected too much from a hollow fuselage to take a fully oval shape.
I don't knpw.
Anyway, here are the pictures

And it should be enough space for all that. Interesting projects. I built some Albatros de Zio years ago, my first paper model was an Albatross, the key is to give it the best possible shape before closing. And if the paper is very thin fill it, for example tissue paper or cotton. And patience, the last stretch of the fuselage is not easy

Ok, I was almost ready to launch the Albatross by the window when I decided to cut half the hull by the cockpit and glue half a milimeter of the plane. And... a miracle! It fixed the problem!
I assembled the engine, and after that, I painted it with gunmetal and black paint. The result is very realistict.
And of course I glued the tail and there are many parts finished, meaning tailskid, wheels and some struts.

I'm glad you did not throw it away and that you managed to solve the problem. But and the photos?

Nice save there Alejandro! I'm glad, but not surprised, that you were able to pull it off. Keep going my friend.
