I like Ab's idea of having a hatch to show the interior. Like a 3D cutaway. A bit late now but nevertheless. Great job, Ricardo!

Thanks for the comments

Yes, leaving a hatch makes sense. I often feel the same on Halinski kits...

The skin parts fit very well. Odd angles, holes and other detail show that streamlining was not as important as on later designs…

The tail stabilizer structure follows Halinski’s standard practice: many parts and quite some work to get the desired shapes, which are easy to achieve.

The first pictures show the main wheels. The third shows the front fuselage, with a hole to fit the engine hub.

Great, super clean work, delicate and precise. And those wheels were magnificent. I never built a kit already printed, somewhere I read that the paper is very different, is that so? Is the difference to a good paper for home printers remarkable?

Finally some time to spare again to check on your progress. Looking very good Ricardo! I'm always surprised by the amount of structural parts that go into a Halinski empennage section. And not only in the tail section. That makes models relatively heavy so hopefully the landing gear is strong enough to bear the weight.

Cheers,
Erik

How did I miss this build?


Lots of parts to cut.

Thanks for the comments, friends

@ Vinalssergio – well, when you print the kit, you choose the paper. Different publishers use different paper qualities. So, I would not generalize any conclusion. Halisnki paper is much to my taste and the printing method yields a more stable finish than a laser printer. Maybe an inkjet printer is better in this respect but I have no experience about…
@ Erik – being a biplane, this one has an extra lot of card parts! Regarding the landing gear, I’m pretty sure that the kit’s solution is strong enough. As you know, I very often make changes to the way landing gears are fixed.

For a change, I took several pictures of the upper wing structure assembly. Being thin, it is rather fragile. The weak point is in the middle. It is easy to “destroy” the dihedral angle.

Skinning the wing overcomes the fragility. I used a fair quantity of all-purpose glue to fix the skin to the structure as extensively as possible. The last pictures show several wing details.
