Rudolf Hegerís He -178

1.

Instructions are provided. You are ahead of the game if you read German.

2.
Parts pages printed on very old letter size card stock.


3.
In hurrying with only the illustrated instruction page, my mistakes in understanding were many. Uppermost was constructing a fuselage before installing necessary parts into the sub assemblies. This required cutting the sections free from my bullet proof glued surfaces. Reassembly did not go well.

4.
Parts pages reprinted. Second fuselage created.


5. 6. 7.
The stream lined plastic canopy is field expediency made from rounded product packaging.

8. 9.

Why am I sharing this? Possibly discovering 30 year old card stock ( I donít through anything away according to She Who Must Be Obeyed) is not a good idea and best to use a translator when instructions are provided.

Bob, your right about the german translation. At the moment I am building Rudolfs FW200. Seeing your build encouraged me to put up an build-report ( I wasnīt planning to, but i changed my mind ). As you pointed out it is important to read the instructions and looking at the drawings.

Nice work once again
