Jpthedog Posted August 23, 2020 Author Share Posted August 23, 2020 So some progress today with a full-ish day of modelling. Filling the joints on the engines and flash on tail-planes - sharp trailing edge tho!! Upper and lower wing routes dosnt match at the wing route, so I inserted a plastic strip and then filled underneath to re-profile to a sharp trailing edge which feathers away to nothing.... General progress - tailplanes on and some primer on the engines just to see how they are looking...... Next - the cockpit canopy is not the same profile as the fuselage..... so I added a plastic strip and filled behind to hopefully fill this out. Fuselage progressively getting glued - its the only way. And sanded down... Windows will be filled after painting with clearfix or similar - just small enough. Next we are onto the exhaust arrangement and the camo scheme selected. Splinter scheme to try out, so its a Pedro B-2 with a few spots of colour. Rust exhausts - my methos is spray gunmetal, seal with matt coat, dust on scraped pastel dust, spray again with matt coat to seal..... this kit not really justifying new techniques. Start of the 24 exhaust pipes..... oh yeah and another part the engine cowling that is scale thickness about 200 mm and will not fit once exhausts are on. Another scraping session then.... First side on - think I will leave rest until after camo is painted to reduce masking of this delicate arrangement. Overall the kit continues to test my determination to get it successfully completed. Virtually every piece requires some sanding, filing, scraping to get to fit...it could be me of course, but i really don't think so! That's it for this week.
