I started to assemble the floats and found a mistake in the part F5, that I corrected after taking this picture.
The floats, or better said, the floats supports, are going to be reinforced because that (and the tails) are the parts of the plane that more bumps and finger mistakes are going to receive when handling the model. It's something like when you have a wound in the little finger of the foot: everything goes there.

Recently surfaced again the question that somebody ask me occasionally: Why your models are in 1/72 scale instead of 1/33?
The second picture is the answer: Just 20 of that planes are in paper (and just the 727 is at 1/144 scale)
So, I like to have my planes, paper o plastic at the same scale. And can you imagine all of this planes at 1/33 scale? Where could I place them?

Thanks, Joe!

The wing floats are finished!
So, it remains to design the windbreaker over the middle gunner post and both walkways over the nose of the plane.
Meaning that the Beta model could be finished this week and the model could be uploaded this week too. And then, to release improved versions of the plane for sale. I really hope many of you would buy my model, that will include the beaching gear, more detailed engines, reinforced wings and the wiring placement. It will include two more sets of propellers and another set of cowls, depending of the version of the plane. And the ladder!

Depending of the sales, there could be the respective 1:33 versions of this plane on the catalog.

Of course, to finish my personal plane I must paint the lower side of the lower wing and place the wires and antenae.

And the design and test of the Stranraer is finished!
Of course remains to do the last touches of paint, but the model, the phisical part is finished!

From now, I'm going to reorganize the sheets of parts to reduce the number of them and will group the internal and external parts. I'm going to exclude the optional parts from the uploaded model (for example, the central windshield was removed in the K7287)
Once done, I'll release at the same time the free model (K7287) and the first of the pay models (BN L)

Meanwile, I'll publish here the wiring and the final details of the painting and weathering of my phisical model.
