Thanks wireandpaper for your interest.
Main build was the tail - vertical and horizontal. In each one, I simplified it by bonding the moving parts of the rudder and elevators to the static one, had to ajust the width as seen in the next picture.



To locate and boned the tail parts, used the simple method of former and beam.

This Fiat CR42 Falco along with the Gloster Gladiator, Fairy Swordfish...... did a decent job in a low threat environment. Technology soon overtook them. But they had their days in the sun.


Nice work Shalom. The coloring on top certainly cover up for the mismatches on the bottom.

Thanks Mike1158 and Dion Dunn for your encouraging comments. The lower wings are done and assembled. To build the lower wings, I simplified the internal ribbing.





Wings bonded directly to the fuselage. Used the vertical and horizontal tailes to verify a simetrical engle of the two lower wings.









Next, need to finish the canopy before the upper wing.

Nice progress.


Italian WW2 aircraft had interesting camo pattern. Especially the desert versions which this Fiat wore in North Africa.

Thanks Isaac for your comments, it's a nice bi-plan,one of the last in operational use.

The canopy is done and assembeld. Had to add some strips to boned the wind shiled to the fuselage.



The upper wing is made of a short center part and two long left and right parts. Bonding the ribbs to the lower skin caused some weavines to the skin.





To locate the upper wing, I used only the outer struts. In each strue I inserted a thin metal road to stifen it. The assembly is flexible without the additionl atruts.
