I built an I-16 some years ago. It is not a bad choice. Perhaps a Bf-109 would be better suited to start with Halinski. There is no shortage of Bf-109 to choose from…
You know that I don’t particularly appreciate complex card structures. In my view, they often make it harder to get a proper skin finish in the cases where the skin parts would be enough to define the shape. That’s why I moved on to other assemblies and let the tail waiting for better days…

Hi Ricardo, great details in the cockpit, as expected from Halinski. The pedals look exactly the same as the ones in the Ju-88.
Regarding the complex tail structure, indeed it looks over the top but in Halinski models it seems like every bit of the structure serves a purpose. You also built the Dauntless, and the internal structure is quite complex as well, but always the location of a former coincides with either a shape change or a joint, and a former behind the gluing tabs of a joint helps to properly mate the two parts. So from that perspective a properly designed internal structure makes sense. But I agree with you, if a complex structure doesn't add to accuracy or realism, designers shouldn't include it. And to be honest, the smoothest joints can only be made when joining two sections first and then placing the former. Unfortunately, not always possible....so then the structure could come in handy...

Erik

I agree with Erik, but I see some sanding in your future to ensure a good fit for the skins.

@ Erik – I agree that the formers put by Halinski have a purpose and are not randomly placed. Far from that! Indeed, the many parts of the tail stabilizer that I show today are useful. My point regards, for example, the need to put formers inside and along the most rearward fuselage skin parts shown yesterday. The part W4 is designed so that the skin parts must be glued over the structure, instead of being pushed from behind, like a glove, after being properly formed and glued together. The Dauntless rear fuselage and tail structure is very complex, but I didn’t feel it was overdone. It was very much too my taste!
@ Fred – Maybe not. I almost always cut the formers slightly inside the line
@ Mike - thanks
The tail stabilizer is modeled in the classic Halinski way: many parts that take time to cut but that also make the assembly easy. As usual, there is a wire bit that passes through the fuselage, to ensure that the stabilizer is properly aligned and solidly fixed.

The wing structure takes time to cut but results in a solid assembly.

The ailerons are not yet glued to the structure. The last picture shows a dry fit test.

nice texture to the control surfaces add to the model looks.

Some designs have very flimsy internal wing structures, which makes it hard to glue the skin on without the risk of twisting. No such risk with a Halinski structure, indeed labor intensive but very effective. Also the attachment to the fuselage is such that alignment issues are hardly possible.

I concur with Isaac, nice texture on the ailerons, and the red tab detail (probably with the sign "Nicht anfassen"?) indicates a great eye for detail. Great build up so far, Ricardo!

Erik

@ Isaac – one of the things I find great on Halinsky kit is that graphic effects are everywhere but never overdone! The ailerons are a good example.
@ Erik – I agree! The formers are engineered in a way that the relative parts positions are very well defined. Hmm, I must check if the sign on the ailerons is readable. It is the case on the external fuel tank…
Today’s pictures show diverse assemblies related to the main landing gear. The gear legs are printed on very thin paper. It eases rolling the paper and getting a good finish.
