I'm constantly blown away by your painting.   The realism your portray with your painting and weathering, in my opinion, is unmatched.

This fuel tank will NOT be visible after the wings are built and attached. At least i’ll know it’s there...

Amazing detail as always, Jeroen.  Your builds are just incredibly stunning.  Watching a masterpiece take shape is truly an honour

As with the Ta152 i sprayed a little bit of tinted matt varnish over de glazing to replicate scratches and dust.

Thnx guys!

built the wings. Added damage (as per reference). Replaced airbrakes by photo etch airbrakes. Sprayed primer. Polished the primer smooth. 

Cut downnthe trim controls and made my own with leftover pe.

The Ho 229's air break is on the bottom of the fuselage behind the main gear!

On the wing tip's are the Rudder Drag break spoilers. Only one side would be deployed at a time for a turn.  But I believe that you are going to place the wings in a stand / rack like the real one is now. If so there would be no linkage holding them open or shut.?

hope this may help you

Hi Randy,

thnx!

You’re right! I indeed already installed the airbrakes. The rudder drag brakes will be all be posed open to make the huge wings look interesting, but i get the picture. It would make more sense to pose them open on just one side. I will actually build the wings.
