Thanks Glen and Ricardo.


Great tip, Ricardo. I was planning on something similar since I am a bit nervous about the overall weight of this puppy.


Lovely work, by the way!

Doesn't look like much, but I finally got some time on the ol' girl. One outer wing panel down, three to go!


Just sitting in place with the associated aileron for some perspective. This is going to be a really large and beautiful model when it's done!

Started the rear fuselage. Some tense moments, but it's basically together and almost square. I'll be doing a bit of post build twisting to get the rear end in line so the stabs are not crooked. My windows align well and with some paint touch-up on the edges, I'm pretty pleased. All in all, a good start!

The fuselage looks pretty much dres-right-dress to me, Dan.

It's fun to see this big airplane take shape.

Thanks Don and RM! It is indeed taking shape and is going together quite well...


Here is the start on the forward section. Lots more to go, but coming along nicely. All as per the kit. I only made my steering wheel from fuse wire and painted it and also added some chain to simulate the aileron cable connections around the back of the wheel. You can also see control cables coming out of the bottom nose...those will end up in some holes for the rudder cables.

Thanks so much, Greg.


I've moved along a bit and have the forward part pretty much done. I added all the little doodads for control lines on the fuselage and a rear potato-bug looking thing behind the cockpit that will have a fuel line going into it from the top wing. I also am trying to put the fuselage front and rear together and want a little bit of insurance so I've added some toothpicks for a bit of grab and alignment. We'll see if this helps or just makes it harder. It's just a butt joint. These are put in strategically at the top edges so you'll need to really look into the cockpit to see them. They will be hidden for the most part.



More soon...Dan
