And here we go!
I first attached the airbrakes at “closed” position and secured them with stryrene pieces glued from the inside. I then glued styrene pieces at the insides of the wells, in order to provide some kind of inner support for the “closed” doors (I hate to hear the offending :”crack”, usually happening at the final stages….):
1. Air Brake
2. Supporting rod
3. Doors attached
Attachment of the doors followed, and everything was “solidified” by application of thin liquefied styrene at all joints.
1. Air brake area
2. MLG area
I trapped what is supposed to be the cockpit tub (it’s a joke, really, but I will attach a pilot, so, most of the joke will be hidden!) between the two fuselage pieces and glued them together:
1. NLG area
2. Joke cockpit tub (doubling as seat…)
Fit was so so. The two piece intakes followed…
Finally, I assembled the four wing tanks…
I will let everything dry and do an initial coarse sanding tomorrow, before attaching the wings (it will be easier…).
Thanks for stopping by!
