Had some trouble closing the main body. One side was a bit out of shape and needed some force to get in line.

started adding oil canning to the body and wings. This can clearly be seen in a lot of photos. Not caused by air pressure ofcourse but by the internal frame and probably poor aluminium work.

This will take some work....

I always wonder about oil-canning and the end of the Reich.  How long did things like Me-262's and V-2's sit baking in the sun before they were photographed?  We all know about expansion and contraction.  I just wonder how much is construction related.

 

Keep up the good work!

That has nothing to do with stress, thin materials or weak construction, it is an advanced technology feature :D

thanks for sharing the build, it's inspired me to get this kit, I did think about getting the V1 kit to sit alongside it. The V1 has a personal interest for me as one of them landed on my dad's home in 44 (he was serving as a rear gunner on the halifax in 298 squadron at the time) and the V1 landed a few weeks after my nan had just been informed her other son had died on HMS Mourne.

I wasnt happy with the boy looking straight forward. He needs to look up at the rocket. So i chopped off his head, cleaned up the jawline. Drilled holes, inserted rod. Now to remodel the flesh.

also almost finished one door. Only needs clasps and hinges and rivets.
