  8. End of the project. Adding flaps and ailerons to both wings: Now it's time to fit the wings to the central box. Lot of suspense... and if this didn't go well ? And YES! It WORKS! Completing the wings root: Last chapter: the engine. More classic: most of it is made of cast resin parts. Good ones, although some after-market detail sets are better, but this is visually good. (Nostalgia) The last PE part of this assembly: This assembly is now complete: My Hellcat is now complete. A very good kit, well designed. Sustained assembly with some thrilling moments but very exciting at the end. Highly recommended for those PE addicts who want to try something unusual. Thank you for your attention and comments. _Bruno

  11. Hello. I use cyano-acrylate glue (or super glue). Slow dry, i.e. which sets in about twenty seconds (I can accelerate just by breathing humid air on it). _Bruno
  12. Continued. Now going back to the tail assembly: Surfaces are moveable: Fore fuselage now. Assembling the radiator: ... and finishing the cockpit with wind shield and canopy: The two folding parts of the wings: Arming the aircraft: to be continued... _Bruno
  13. Hello All I'd like to share my last and current build of a 1:48 scale Grumman F6F-5 Hellcat from Jasmine Model. This is a naked aircraft, as it includes only its skeleton, made of high quality stainless photo etching, with a few injected plastic parts for complex volume shapes. The bulk of the build is the assembly of 300+ PE parts. Their fit is excellent but the whole stuff is quite challenging... needs a lot of self control and adrenaline. Let's begin with the tools used, which are rather simple. Cutter, scalpel, tweezers, polishing pad, flat ruler and bending plates, gluing pads and braided kleenex to pump out the excess glue. I used super glue throughout. Let's start with the cockpit: Gluing the side consoles... quite challenging as you've to bend them so they can be fitted in place and then make both flat again: Cockpit almost finished. Then goes the aft fuselage: Fitting the tail hook assembly: The tail wheel. This is a plastic part: Longitudinal beams are now added (lower fuselage only, upper will come later): Then goes the complex and intricate central wing section: Adding the two inner flaps, which are moveable: Fitting the wing to the fuselage: Assembling the main gear: Quite challenging, but well worth the effort. To be continued... _Bruno
