Profimodeller Fi103 V1

I know it looks like I'm stalling, but there's just a whole lot of tiny parts to install.

I also managed to balance the whole thing out. The V1 is balancing on the cart here:

Jim sent me his Schlepper to make this ensemble complete! Cheers!

Another daunting and intricate multi media kit, making this build more extensive than I planned :)

This schlepper needs to mate with the Anhanger. For some reason two of these four rods were missing from the Anhanger kit, so I did some scratching, robbing from other kits and tingling. All in all this model will be pretty long and needs a long piece of plint to display it on.

 

Here's the front wheel with the towing setup. Might need to alter the angler a bit by shortening the upper two rods. We'll see when the schlepper is done.

Started work on the Schlepper Scheuch. 

The amount of parts is staggering!

 

Take a look at Jim's review here.

 

In the meantime I'm studying reference pics:

And this is progress on the rest. About to glue the clamps to the anhanger that hold the wings. Balance is still tricky...

You are awesome. So awesome I want to give you applause.

 

Loving the work so far. The Schlepper should help with weight up front and balance it out a little.

Nice execution on the Schlepper parts, Jeroen. You sure now how well spent the money was you put on a good PE-bending-tool :D .
It is almost a shame to cover everything up in paint.

Cheers Rob
