On the whole, given some paint job on the windscreen and pax windows and the anti-glare flat black patch on the nose section, the Navion looks impressive, doesn't it?
There are ways to get around the warping issue without having to rely on formers or spars. A small strip of aluminum sheeting might have helped to correct the issue. I use it extensively in almost all my wings, control surfaces and especially on my larger scale builds such as the 1/18th SR-71 whether I roll the wings or use formers. It goes a long way towards giving the thinner can surface some rigidity it would not normally have. If this a resource available to you, it is one worth investigating IMO...

The different colors do add to the finer details. I use this technique as well by keeping strips of solid colored can available. I have cataloged solid panels of black, blue, white, red and yellow and when I need an added dash of color such as this, I just affix that color can where it is needed. That might be a technique to investigate, should you have the resources available to do so. I've never been a fan of painting cans especially given its propensity to scrape right off if not sealed with a dull or gloss coat over it, so I opt for solid colored can in these instances...

Wonder how many people would recognize these WIP soda/beer can models?
Yep, they are all "covered up" with sticky tapes for practical reasons.
Scales: 1/36 and 1/33 respectively - that's the hint.
The last pic should be so obvious for you, especially Dave.
No completion date as I always drift away..........

Thanks for visiting. If you are referring to the SPAD Soda/Beer Can Models, it sure was a hard one to do. Can't remember how I was fully engaged in building it. Anyway, thanks to the designer, Murphy, whose design allowed me a smooth flow in putting all the parts together without a glitch or trimming here and there.

Ouch! Is that needle end as sharp as it looks?

Can cones such as papermate has crafted, can be potently sharp as seen. The shards of can that end up piled all over the floor are worse IMO. Those make their way from my workshop all the way across the house onto carpets, seats, pets and clothing and will jab you when you least expect it. Before I started modeling with cans, I used to think that paper cuts were bad...not anymore.

Thanks guys. As Gman says, the pointed end of the model is very sharp. If you, for no good reason at all, drive the sharp end into your flesh, it can go inch deep.

And the latest state of play, naked, I mean all sticky tapes removed for the photo.
