All Done!


I added some final details like that top wing container which I'm assuming is a rather small reserve tank so I put fuel line clinging to some struts going down into the fuselage. I also added a bit of airbrush weathering since these things appear to have been well used. My fuel reserve and oil tanks were made from 2-part epoxy and shaped. Straps were from paper and the fuel tank holder was from thin cardboard. Fuel lines were thin fuse wire.


I love it and think it looks a treat. It's truly a lovely airplane and the designer of this model deserves lots of credit for attempting it in the first place and pulling off such a nice fitting kit. Any and all errors are mine!I'm a bit biassed, but I do think it is a more convincing finished model than a very expensive resin kit in 1/32nd scale that, while lovely, just lacks the delicate touch of this model. Looks a tad clunky (in my opinion).



Thanks for hanging around for the journey. Now...what's next????


Cheers,
Dan

Nice work, Dan! All those struts and bracing would have scared me off a kit like this, but yours turned out great!

Wood, canvas, metal pipes, tension wires, whenever I see them, I marvel at the wisdom of my predecessors, allowing such an inconspicuous combination of materials to fly like a bird.

Very well done! I wonder how you'd do with a wheeled or tracked theme....

Naw, just build what you want.

Impressive project with all the struts and rigging.
It was fun watching your progress.

Hi;

The actual machine usually sat on a cradle or two wheel trolley for handling. The appearance of the finished model would be much improved and much easier to handle if it was placed on such. There are several photographs viewable on line. Hope this is useful.

It takes great skill to get a complex and delicate assembly of thin and small parts to turn out this tidy. You're right about it looking more convincing than a resin kit, and the build thread contains some valuable information on how to get these results. Hope you're very pleased with it.
