Cool Wing fillets

Added the wing fillets.

I really like it as it covers the wing to fuselage joint

I was surprised at the good fit. The fillet is a one piece wrap around part that covers the top and bottom of the wing.

Isaac,

She looks great with the wings and tail attached. A great looking kit.

Cool Landing gear prep

Wheels first


The wheels are laminated card which I cut using a circular cutter. They are slightly oversized as they will be shaped to size later
Mig-17F Gary's repaint-img_4065.jpgMig-17F Gary's repaint-img_4066.jpg


Here are the rest of the gear parts
Mig-17F Gary's repaint-img_4067.jpg


This is the sketch for the wheels. Please note that the nose gear actuator shown here is behind the strut. That is wrong. The gear retracts forward, so the actuator needed to be in front of the strut.

wheels are shaped

and ready for painting

wheels are painted using Tamiya paint

Exclamation Landing gear

the struts are installed first
Mig-17F Gary's repaint-img_4074.jpgMig-17F Gary's repaint-img_4075.jpg


Next are the wheels.
Mig-17F Gary's repaint-img_4076.jpgMig-17F Gary's repaint-img_4077.jpgMig-17F Gary's repaint-img_4079.jpg


nose gear
Mig-17F Gary's repaint-img_4078.jpg

Make sure that the struts and wheels provide the proper stance on the ground. This plane has a slight nose up, so the main gear is somewhat lower. I have seen other Mig-15 and 17 builds that show a tall stance on the wheels which is wrong.
