Iain Ogilvie Posted November 3, 2013 Share Posted November 3, 2013 This one's been on the go since '07 (my usual glacial buuild rate) but yesterday I dug her out for a looksee and made lots of progress (for once!): Inner walls double skinned with corrugated plastic sheet and brass box section side rails added to straighten the sides: Start made on more bulkheads - rectangular 'blanks' of correct width made up - and one 'notched to fit around brass 'rails'. Later I'll shape to fit roof and cut out middles - so the form upturned 'U' shapes: New doors made/cut out to convert the fuselage to correct mark of Ju52: Wing roots boxed in with plastic sheet cut oversize - will be cut back and shaped to profile later: Wings loosely on - only a few minor tweaks need then fit's a good'un... All control surfaces now prepped and bonded together: Wheels assembled, spats assembled, cowl rings cut out and replacement canopy sourced from a spare Combat Models kit (hoping the original will turn up somewhere): Fuselage top - next stage gun mount opening: And reinforced internally with more corrugated styrene sheet:Back later (prolly with some other random project! ) Iain 2 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
