The fuselage still looks pretty good Isaac. Once it's scanned, it would be pretty easy to measure the parts to make sure the matching parts are the correct size.


If you're thinking of scaling it to 1/30, it will be a monster.

I use screws for counterweight in 1:100 and smaller models,larger ones get SS nut or lead projectile.I use rather heavy but thin cheap card so models tend to be heavier.

Hobby hole puncher and old paint brush work for me there.Paint brushes have tapering shafts,find size of the punch to match diameter close to skinny tip.Handling former on paint brush is easier since its there firmly and it only slides off one way.

This kit design will need lots of dimensional corrections if scaled up. I may be re thinking the larger version as much as I would love to build it.

Thumbs up Windscreen improvements

As I stated before, the kit was developed with a separation right thru the windscreen.
WHV Nord Noratlas-img_0359.jpg



With a little help from my friend , the separated parts were joined and printed again on thin paper and glued back on.

I further separated some of the panels to make gluing easier.

a note;
clean up and smooth the section with the seam or else it will show thru the thin paper.


and glued on

much better.


Many thanks to my friend for this simple fix. I will employ this for the next repainted version of the Nord.

I am surprised in how much work these old kits need. But this is a good practice .


Thank you for your help. We will do it again on the brown and blue version.

Also, I will be using the high quality card stock I got from Japan next time

Exclamation Wing center section

Here is the external skin of the wing center section

and the internal spar and ribs

dry fit first

dry fit to fuselage

My technique was not to pre glue the frame to the wing section, but rather glue it all while being assembled to the fuselage. This way I could move it back and forth to match the fuselage mating area.



Here it is. Not a bad fit so far.

Note:
Some builders preferred to attach the wings to the fuselage with the twin booms and wings all assembled as one unit. I personally will find it a bit difficult because the wings and boom structure are too large and will be difficult to maneuver for final gluing. However, if you want to transport the model, this is a logical attachment point using screws.
