Wow! Thanks!
The one depicted in the minute 3:20 is the same displayed in the museum, but there is a weird detail that I don't understand: the british roundel on the right side was painted way back by the restoration crew, and the "U" ended over the window. The left side of the fuselage has the markings placed right.
My paper model will have the right side depicted like it was on 1942, as can be seen in the movie shown by Rata.

There is another movie here:

Assembling the fuselage.
Having just an engine, it's easier than the He-115. There are still details to design, like the radiator or the scapes, but their placement is already marked.
The beta test will be painted by hand, but the Gimp allows me to digitally paint the plane without losing the "white parts" layer.
Then, of course, will come an extra layer of shadows where the movil surfaces join the wings and tail, and the guns and scapes darkened zone. In other words, weathering.

Rata, it was not my uncle but my grand-uncle, José María Hurtado Radal. He came to Venezuela after the end of the Civil War. Yes, I would like you
to place his name.

About the N-3PB Nomad, the fuselage is almost finished, now comes the tail and elevons, the first layer of paint, and later the floats or the details. Of course that's the phisical model, the digital version is more advanced.

I'll put his name on it for sure.


And the N-3PB coming along nicely.

Thanks!

Ok, the fuselage and tail have been assembled. Now comes the details, that are designed but not printed.
And the first layer of paint, of course.

This black rectangles and the irregural part under and aft the wing, are windows. So, if any of you want to do it, you can cut them and use acrylic.

Breaking my head, I found another picture of the plane in the Norwegian Armed Forces Aircraft Collection, this one taken on May, 1942. And in this picture you can sea clearly the the right side of the plane has the "U" over the window. Meaning the the museum rebuild was well done and I'll have to make mine like this, too.

Anyway, fuselage assembled, paint started. There are going to be three versions: Museum, norwegian and british. And the scales are going to be 1/72 and 1/33.
