Looking good! Although WMV models are vintage, the quality is excellent and they are great fun to build. If you intend to move on the ladder of aircraft modeling, WMV models are a perfect way to build up one's skills.

Cheers,
Erik

Hopefully we will be seeing a hobby model or Fly Model build from Ätherwellen next....... once this one is done, that is.

Addressing comments, the attachment of engine 2 + wing and issues

Thank you for all the kind comments, even though ive been doing this for years my models still dont look the best, and that was my worry with building the pre printed kits, especially due to the fact i dont scan my models beforehand. Its not visible in the previous picture as i hadn't attached the wing yet but theres a stubbon section of fuselage that keeps bending inwards, when i push it out it goes back in, anyone have a solution?


The picture is after i attempted to fix it and even with this slight setback I'm still excited to finish the model after months of hiatus

It will definitely be difficult choosing my next model , quite a few to choose from. maybe I'll do a poll at the end of this build

For fuselage without formers inside or long stretches, some folks stuff them with tissues inside for support.
