DH 89 Dragon Rapide by Schreiber Bogen

Hello everybody.

And so we begin our jorney...
The model is 1:24 scale, some parts (wings and tail) are metallized
The model is designed as skeleton with wrappings. I don't really like this type of construction so it's going to be a challenge for me
The model comes with three cardboard pages and I will be using them.
I began with laminating the parts on cardboard. Usually I do this with contact cement, but I used UHU glue. This made the parts a bit stiffer. It is a waist of money, but, hey, with my build rate I can allow it.
As usual for me, I used Carioca water based felt tip pens for edge painting. I highly advise on using these.
Then I made the passenger seats. After this, I cut out the floor of the passenger compartment and mounted the seats on it.
Nothing too complicated here, just need to be careful.
There is only one thing that I have issue with. When cutting out parts for skeleton, how the parts should be cut? Inside the outline, on the middle of outline or outside of outline??? After staring at instructions, I decided to cut onthe middle of outline and then remove the outline with sandpaper.
Results can be seen below.
We have a long weekend so, probably I will have more updates tomorrow.
