Yes i know its not the first one im going to do

To bad you have to close up all that beautiful work!

I know but i have the pics.

 

What i have done today a small start on the foil.

these parts are easyer to do when he wings are not in place.

I tried this method once, with a Monogram 1/48 B-17, but that was a disaster. Highly visible glue stains, wrinkles and what more.

 

How do you do it? what type of glue do you use?

 

Maybe I'll give it another try with something simple like a bare metal 109 wing underside.

I'm watching this with interest!  Your work with foil is simply stunning!

 

I'm looking off into my future HKM B-17 build in NMF.  So... I'll ask the same question of you that I just asked on Moldmkr's B-17 thread:

 

Between Alclad and foil for large surface areas, which is your preference?  I've done smaller pieces with metal finishes out of everything from paint to foil to metal leaf, and all of them have their headaches.  What's your preference?

I will go for foil for almost all the way.

Just the complex forms suchs as the back end off the engine nacless i have done with alclad.

All the rest is foil.

If you dondt have any expirience with foil try it on a test model.

 

more things done.
