  1. Got a small update. I got the booms in place, but first I had to pack the void with ballast, in this case more plumber's putty. Then the starboard boom was glued and clamped in place. (You can see by the stressed white of the plastic that I clamped the rear one a little too tight...) And then the port after the first was dry. (You'll notice I used tape this time on the rear.) I'll let those set up and then deal with the gaps! Model on! Thom
  2. Real nice progress. Looking good.

    Looks like she's in traction. And looking good.
  4. Great looking Twin! Way to go.
  5. Very 'tidy' and neatly done. Have to say, I eye-balled mine in comparison after looking at a three view diagram, and then sat it flat on the bench with a marker holding up each wing. I think it looks good. Have to neaten up the join of course... I slathered on some PPP. Then wiped it away with wet cotton buds. Not perfect and I think I will hit it with a bit of sanding, as there is still a bit of a step there and there. I also cut a hole into the top of the boom where it mates under the wing, and I'll be adding some ballast into those. Dragon had kindly already left one open. A little cleaning up and I think the booms can go on before too long! Model on! Thom
  6. Some very lovely work! Your dedication with the ribbing is inspirational. And possibly due to not seeing the Mrs. in so long... Hope you have a great reunion!
  7. Really nice, and it even becomes a little research project too.
  8. Alright, so the nose is now on. I filled any gaps with CA, hit it with an accelerator and sanded that smooth. Then some dymo tape and a scriber put the seam line back in. Also took care of the belly and its seems. The black paint is just to help check the line. The booms were finally cemented together and taped/clamped. And one wing was finally offered up the fuselage. Once I get the seams neated on the booms and the other wing on, they can all start coming together. Thanks for looking, model on! Thom
  9. Sad fate for such a wonderful bird. You did it well.
