Cool D VII Starting

Show my progress today in DVII's, in picture my choices of subjects from collection:



I started cutting the fuselages, coloring the edges and build with careful to install lower wing...











The cockpit is painted with Faber-Casttel color pencil...







After I fold and glue with careful, fuselages, the edges is fold with tweezers (in many cases I do not use the fingers to fold)











After gluing fuselages I Work in lower wings, is necessary to finish this piece and install in fuselage to close this...

Continue tomorrow (maybe)

Cool! I build one of these a few years ago, and loved the way it looked.

I happily await to see how these five versions come out, side by side!

Cheers!
Jim

Do you not pre-score the lines before to fold ?

Great job Gomidefilho. Gosh they are small. How do you keep all of those parts from getting mixed up? They are all nice but I think my favorite is the black one flown by Uffz Rausch.

After I build the turtle decks, very simple and very precise again...





















In green D VII I glue in wrong place the turtle deck and need a repair but with pacience I solve the mistake...
