Great looking pit, the shading of the RLM 66 looks very convincing. With the conversion taped on it looks really nose heavy, but that might be caused by the wide angle look.

Cheers Rob

I noticed this as well but it all checks out.

fuselage closed!

Also did some research into the gunsight. Note that i am building the movie star and not a standard ha-1112 k1L Tripala. And also no typical 109G. So i was wondering: should i go for a Revi or QBI spanish gunsight. I watched the movie and saw that there was no gunsight installed. Only in the mockup cockpit closeup shots which showed a Revi.

This is the QBI sight (thnx to Espen Tjetland):

 

Here’s a shot from the movie. No gunsight in sight:

 

Closeup mockup shot with Revi:

 

 

 

Hey Jeroen,

 

Since you are building the movie aircraft, my suggestion is to finish it without the sight.

 

Cheers,

Erik.

The nose is on! Managed to achieve a very smooth and snug fit by thinning the inner edges of the resin and adding a few thin plastic strips. I used a spare Hasegawa windshield which is slightly wider than the Revell windshield.

Now working on the oil cooler which also needs a bit of tweaking to fit the Revell kit.

It DOES look good! Was this the biggest headache? Or does the underside of the fuselage/wing have some other surprises in store?

The biggest headache was the oil cooler. You need to cut out sections of the underwing and compensate for the adjustment made to the higher sit of the nose. I think i’ve got it..

Tried something new. I designed artwork in the Star of Africa theme and had it printed by Projectcolor. The signed photo of the 1956 star of the movie is sandwiched between the wooden base and perspex. 4 screws will hold it in place.
