Been doing some work on the elevators. They have been broken off three times already so it was time for a permanent solution using steel pins.

Drilling holes and insert there, there, etc.

Hinges will be made from plasticcard to hide the pins.

Made progress on the two fins and rudders. Rescribing the panellines and pinning the rudders set at an angle. Very sturdy too.

The elevator trimtabs need to be added next.

Tailsection is well underway towards completion.

I deleted all my pics from photobucket. No more energy spent on those a-holees. I tried deleting my account but evertime I hit

the enterbutton it didn't work.  :angry: Getting another host makes me wonder if they won't

follow the same route at some point. For the time being I stick to posting pics on LSM only.

Nice problem Cees. Anytime I try to go on Netflix one of the kids has always got there first! Still, the elder one will be off to Uni soon. Haven't told her but I might turn her bedroom into a modelling space.

Thanks,

Here are the pics as promised.

As the nose section will be quite dark I will only represent the basic shapes such as the automatic pilot " footballs" and the camera.

The flight engineers collapsible seat has been made as well and it even works up and down. The seat back still needs to be made. Some of the already made parts such as the navigators table and mounting for the R1155/t1154 set up have been modified to make painting easier and reduce the number of loose parts.

Getting there.

Cheers

Hi Cees, Just catching up with your progress, it's looking stunning, will be quite a site to see in person at this scale. Are you going to Telford this year? Hope to see you there if so :)

 

Cheers

Neil
