Another beautiful civil aircraft Moa. I must say thatI find them more attractive than the killing machines. I love the color of the plastic on this one!

Dealing with the seams of the wing lower panels and at the fuselage top. The wheel pants -that I had incorrectly painted red before- are given a coat of aluminium. Some parts from the etched fret are assembled and prepared:

A few structural pieces are glued to add interest:

A gloss back base is applied:

Can't help but notice the fitting of the engine access panels, hinged at the top with a 'gap' on it's aft edge.

Yes, there is a "cheek" effect, the aft parts curves outwards to let air escape, creating a very subtle half-moon opening when seen from behind.

Excellent!

I think the oleos can be improved - they were a bit more beefy in original airplane.

OK, happy now?:

But this will cost you a beer. I recall having in Europe a good one called Ubu. There.

That happens to those who make suggestions, they end up picking up the tab at the pub 😉

Well, for such  good advice I've expected a beer 😉

But sure, once you come to Warsaw I buy you a beer or two with great pleasure, but rather some local one, I don't know the Ubu beer (but I know the Ubu the King).

 

The oleos look great, really much better than those pathetic ones provided by the producer.

Oh, they were just a bit undernourished; though times, then 😉

Coming along nicely. Gotta love those manly oleos 🙂. I rather miss the turquoise green though...

 

Moa, if it is any consolation for the photo etch delay, I was able to go on vacation and return without missing anything.

 

Cheers,

Wlad

Aluminium color is airbrushed on the main elements and the masked windshield:

Nobody ever offers to pick up my beer tag :sad: Can't think why.

 

This model is going to be an absolute gem when it s finished, its not far off already.

Shush, Martian, don't jinx it!

A couple days ago I dropped a kit box on it, fortunately only the LG legs got squashed and were quickly repaired...but during the repair I managed to cast droplets of superglue on one fuselage side, which I had to rasp, sand and repaint. Oh, the horrors of the repair domino effect!

P/S: My older son is a price-winning brewmaster in Argentina, no lack of freebees 😉

P.E. parts + film windows in place, together with the kit's windshield. The windshield in my case needed plenty of shaving to match the windows and the contour of the wing once presented on top of this assembly. Not an easy one, this area, by any means:

What did you use as the film?

Hi Stuart

The film that comes with the P.E. set, as described and photographed on post #22 of this same thread.

This looks set to be another gorgeous rendition of a hitherto unheard of aircraft! (I'm pretty proud of that, since I'm in the pub!)

Looking forward to the next update.
