There was a Piper Cherokee printed somewhere in my house, so I started it. It was printed in b/w, and once finished I'll decide which colors use.
And, Once finished, I'll retouche the plans to do a Piper Arrow, very similar to this.
To prevent the pictures turning rotated, I'm having to open them with Paint and save it again
The plane will have very few changes, just extending the wing spar, one fuselage bulkhead and reinforcements in tail, stabilizer and wings. And better landing gear, off course

This weekend was a very productive one.
The Ju-88a is almost finished. Just remain to do the torpedos and the cockpit antena, that will be placed once I have a place to store the plane.
The "bath" under the cockpit was a desaster made in paper. At last, decided to do what I wanted to do when I began the plane months ago: To place the plastic bath that I had stored years ago. And the change has been great.
I had printed a b/w Piper Cherokee. This weekend I applied the first layer of paint.
And, both Me-262 are almost paralized. But next weekend they will be taken with vengeance.

This weekend I finished the Ju-88a-4 Torp. When I was gluying the torpedos, I found that they were too short. And I found the wrong size in the web. But... it needed at least 8 mm more. So cut, enhance, glue, too thin, reinforce, paint.
That, and the antena.
The Piper Cherokee is going slowly, and the Me-262 didn't make outside of the box this week.

So, the Ju-88 is FINISHED! After so many months! BRAVO!

Thanks, asaf, thanks, Sergio!
This plane lasted longet that I believed, it was started in October-November 2018!
Of course part of the problem was that I was assembling three 727, two Me-262 and a Piper Cherokee at the same time, but, even so, the investigation required to make the plane and the difficult of the color scheme conspired to extend the making of the model.
Sometimes I like to do a normal airplane, just to have it. My Tiger Moth, Mosquito, Camel and others are like that.
But sometimes I want an airplane (or ship) that was in a very specific place at a very specific moment. And then the research usually last more time than the assembly of the model. This one was one of them.

Just assembling the wings of the Piper Cherokee and both Me-262.
The Schwalbes have a very reinforced wing. Better for me.

This weekend was very good.
First, I found some plastic glue, after months that was AWOL from Venezuela.
So I took my Piper Cherokee and glued an acetate windshield. Sadly, it can't be seen in the pictures. The Cherokee will be painted white and blue, so far it has only parts of the first layer of paint.
Second, I started to make tryes for my (probably) next P-61. So I took the original model, rescaled it to 1/72, printed a try, and... wrong size, so, correct and reprint. Here comparing the test with my Ju-88a. The size will be very similar.
By the way, I really recomend to buy the paper models. For a very simple reason: If somebody publish a model, it means it needs the money to eat. If we don't buy it, he will decide to use his time to do something else that will let him live. Simple as that.
Third, I continued with both my Me-262s. The wing is thick and very reinforced, as I like. After all, I'm planning to have this model for 30 years or more.
Yes, a good weekend.

This post as no pictures, just some information. This weekend I assembled the section of the fuselage over the wings and under the canopy. There is a small difference between both planes: "White 3" can be converted to have simple or douple cockpit, so it has two foot supports in the left side.
Because I have plastic glue again, I'm going to place a transparent cockpit.
And the original paper model brings only a set of fuselage formers, but you must duplicate them.
