Yes Pedro, the Vallejo Metallic range is good. And does perform very well so far too date.
Now down to the nitty gritty and getting this Jill on final.
Will now start the final details, with the wing fold configuration.
First the pitot tube is attached to the LH wing outer panel.
Put that aside and next because somehow I missed this when attaching the inner main gear door covers, are the door retraction actuators. Which are installed in place.
1. Inner door retraction actuator
Now to work on the LH wing panel. Three folding actuating arms, are pushed into the inner wing bay.
Next the wing fold support brace is cleaned, painted Vallejo Aluminum and attached at the hard point on the upper panel.
Then carefully the actuators are pushed into the polycaps on the inner wing panel, and then the support brace attached to 2 hard points on the LH fuselage side. The fit is very good and sturdy. Similar to the Tam Corsair where the wing fold option is well designed for longevity.
1. Excellent contact point very sturdy
2. Brace attached to hardpoints on fuselage
The one part that is not so sturdy are the fowler flaps as they can be knocked off easily as I did here as I prepare to install the RH outer panel.
1. Darn fowler flap already knocked off
Next working on the right side wing fold. After inserting the actuators into the panel, this time I will first install the brace to the fuselage.
1. One note, don’t forget these lamps
Before attaching the wing, I install the front antenna mast, which leans forward, unusual configuration.
Next is to install the wing. Again excellent fit and drops in place even on the support brace.
Just add the clear wing tip formation lamps, re-attach the wayward fowler flap and she is done!!!
