Bristol F2b Eduard, 1/48
Tim K posted a topic in Work in Progress - AircraftAfter an hour of doing a post and then losing it and at that post unable to upload photos I'm losing it... So a very brief resume - may well be better for being shorter. The tiny struts from the fuselage to lower wing cemented onto body but on the wing used masking fluid Using the jig with lower wing tack taped to body glued the lower end of the struts to the lower wing and tacked the upper junction of them to the upper wing with masking fluid. The masking fluid kept the struts in place but importantly allowed the other struts to be placed and glued with out having that feeling of keeping ten plates spinning on garden canes. PS the rear modelling mat isn't true with anything but serendipitously I will use that idea agin for trueness. And the elevator will be sorted by the fitters before the maiden flight. The EZ super fine was CA'd to trimmed back GasPatch turnbuckles prior to the wing setting, a few have been lost but no difficult problem.
