Good news!
I finished testing the parts of the Alpha Test. You can see in the pictures that I haven't glued the interwing struts nor the float ones, but they are... struts. The other engine and fload are printed and will be glued today. And the struts!

Meanwhile I have sended the beta test archive to my beta-tester and I'll let him enjoy the model while I finish to assemble mine, update the instructions (now are a kind of jigsaw) and start the other five versions in scale 1/100.

Upgrading the instructions... changing the name of some parts to help the modelers...

And improving the presentation. Meaning creating a logo. It's based on the one from my company.

Thanks, Rata!

Well, the instructions for the 1/100 scale Stranraer are finished, the renaming of the parts too, and the Alaska Queen is almost ready too!

I'm hoping to have all the six versions of the Stranraer when my friend finish the beta-test, so I'll have all of them published in ecardmodels at the same time!

My new logo is finished, too. Just needed to change the name and fill the "D"

Instaling the interwing struts in my alpha model.

As I said, a strut is a strut, so I started to make the rest of the versions before finishing mine.

And, being in 1/100 scale, I aknoweledge that gomidefilho is going to make an arkwork while I'll be placing glue spots in all the parts.

Good news, three and half planes are painted, and I hope to finish all of them by Wednesday. Then, of course, comes the upload.

And later... enjoy!

Working to finish the six versions of the Stranraer in scale 1/100.
I'll probably finish them tomorrow. Just waiting the pictures of the finished beta test!

Meanwhile I'm changing the presentation of my models, adding the name "Draco Models" and a catalog number. And it happens that once I finish five pending Stranraers of different scales, I'll have done 50 different models!!!!

I really didn't expected to have done so many.

And the ones that will come!

And just the FY-B remains to convert to the scale 1/100.

You can see the catalog number and the series theme: "Glue by Numbers".

About my alpha model, it's advancing. If fact, yesterday, due to another blackout, it moved ahead. (If somehow comes the apocalipsis, here in Venezuela I'm sure we will take at least a week to start thinking that something different happened). Soon I'll publish the pictures.

And the Alpha model is finished.

Some last observations? The wings must be done perfectly perpendicular between them, but it's just the case to place a bit of atention when assembling them. Be carefull to not place the wrong part in the wrong place... I mean, pretty normal the same of each biplane you will assemble someday.

It's funny the way both models with different scales look together. Or the difference against my Dc-9 at the same scale.

Anyway, just waiting the Beta model to upload them to ecardmodels. Or, if you can't wait, just send me a message.
