    Hi guys, home after work & -1°C outside but I've a warm glow because the wings are straighter.Maybe not 100% straight but pretty good. Jimbob....

    Ok,here's my attempt at straightening the wings.I already cut a grouve on the inside of the wing and cut some brass tube & taped this onto the top wing section. Then added a little araldite epoxy glue. Covered that with a little cling film so it doesn't glue to the other half of the wing. Placed the other half of the wing on & pressed onto a steel ruler so it sets flat.I earlier removed a strake from the bottom of the wing which wasn't on this 125-600.Its left overnight while I work & we'll see if it works in the morning. Adios, Jimbob. ....

    Thanks for the replies lads.Their like hens teeth now Dave,I picked one up from a buddy a year or so ago so I'll use it to build a 125-700 one day. Here's a photo of the ailerons as they are at the moment marked out for a little more detailing.I forgot I also thinned down the trailing edge of the flaps & took a skim off the top.The navigation lights have been blended into the tips with a file & a fine sanding stick.The lights in the side of the fuselage were also sanded flat with sanding sticks. Adios amigos, Jimbob. ...

    Hi guys, not much done during the last few weeks with work,life & Telford.Not much to show so I added a little plastic sheet in two positions to make the aileron the correct size,then shaped (I'll get a finished photo tommorow). The landing lights in the wings were just a panel line so I tried to improve them. So I cut out the panel & thinnew the surrounding plastic inside the wing.Then cut some lengths of plastic strip & glued them to the inside protruding into the opened area.The idea is this will give a lip of plastic strip onto which the clear plastic light cover will be attached.If it works out - great. Then the internal walls of the light fittings were built up & glued onto one half of each wing along with a scratched taxi light from clear sprue & a landing light from Little Cars 2mm clear lens. It looks a little rough but it will work out fine,painted with Vallejo white & a little beige where the white chipped off. Little Cars 1mm clear lenses were glued into the holes drilled in the fuselage sides ahead of the wings & the hole was then filled with superglue (to be sanded back flat) to make the lights glass cover.Also the kit wingtip lights were cut off & clear plastic glued in their place to be sanded to shape.I used a clear plastic knife as the donor. Finally the tailplane bullet fairing got a bit of Milliput to extend & shape it & then a coat of Mr. Surfacer (still a bit to do).The hinge areas were built up a little & shaped with Mr. Surfacer as well. Hopefully it won't be as long for the next update,loving all the other builds going on. Jimbob. .. ..

  11. PK-110 HS.125-600

    Quick update.I cut out the ailerons & began making new ones from 2mm plastic sheet. I cut out a little too tight on the bottom one - no worries.Both will be sanded to shape.Cheers for looking in, Jimbob. ...

    Thats looking fantastic Thom.Great progress. Jimbob. .
  13. PK-110 HS.125-600

    Just a quick update.I tried dipping the wings in warm water to help straighten them but was only a little successful so I tried fitting some brass rod in the wing.Not so good when I almost went through the wing with the power tool, but saved in time & the wing was sanded down smooth again. A little more detail on the tailplane. Also on the tail & rudder. I've got a little more done on the tailplane area but no photos yet & still have to straighten the wings. Thanks for looking, Jimbob. ... .
