:DWe will be glad to help posting more details of the construction of DVII, this model is very simple but very effective as a representation of the plane. To cut does not always use scissors (to use just to make cuts excesses and corrections), I use the same surgical scalpel No. 11 (not X Acto) that produces clean cuts and precise rule hardly use as a tool to help guide court, unless the part or piece to be built is very large, but generally do all the cuts freehand ...

Very nice, instructive and enjoyable build to watch!

The simplicity of the build process, with the amazingly realistic end result, is clearly one of the attractions of the FG line of models...and you are doing a very good job!

Cheers!
Jim

Very nice Pericles. You're going to have a complete "wing" of fokkers at 1/100.

Smile Another update

At this time I work in undercarriage of my jasta







The first providence, is make a axle carenage, is pretty simple, only careful is curve the superior face, glue and drill a axle hole with pin vise...







The next step is a made axle with paper clips. I use clips N 3 or 4 to made in scale, this clip is transform in axle with blending pliers, after this work is cutting and insert in the carenage...



This result... Waiting for the next work, Note this improvement is a part of instructions of model...





After I star the undercarriage leg, for my work made in 120g is fragile, i glue in another 120g paper to laminate and reforce this pieces, the back side is painting with acrilic paints... In the next chapter...

See you next time...

Thumbs up

Your assembly line continues working very well

Why do you did the holes after the assembly ? To me is easier just to do the holes before.

Yes Alcides is true, but because the same motives of wing cutties explained in Brewster SB2A topic I choose make the holes after gluing the pieces...

Retake the assembly of this project, I made the undercarriage, the first providence is paint with acrilyc paint the back of undercarriage legs, ater this paint I'm cutting with careful the parts...









After I glue each undercarriage set in correspondent airplane, for this job I use a PVA glue with slow dry time...







The next target is made a tail leg, in the original in WSAM scale (1/60) Chip recommend the use of scrap of balsa or matchstick, but in 1/100 180g para is suficient for reproduce this part, for simulate the wood grain I use pencil color drawning is multiple directions, before is cutting and glue in each plane...





The next objective: the undercarriage stais, control atuactors and cables...

This sure brings back some memories. They look great. Look forward to seeing them finished.

I built a whole set in a small scale, added an eyelet and I use them as ornaments on the Christmas tree.
