With the fuselage halves all chopped up I have started having a play with the Profimodeller tail wheel set, Its not a cheap set but what you do get for your money is some really nice resin, PE and plastic stock of varying sizes and I was really intreaged to try it.

Some careful cutting, measuring and dry fitting is required before reaching for the glue and found it best to glue up while the parts were in one of the fuselage halves.

Looks very fragile but is actually very strong and although it has gone together with a slight twist it all flexes nicely as its sandwiched between the fuselage halves. Some more work to do on it but definately a big improvement on the kit parts.

 

Regards. Andy

I never imagined a big scale Ju-188.  All of your detail AM parts really get my attention, so I'm looking forward to seeing this happen.   Tailwheel bay is freakin' awesome!

Thanks Gaz, you should check out AIMS website, Pastor John makes some seriously nice Ju-88 conversion sets and the quality is outstanding.

Thanks for checking by Jay, the AIMS conversion is fantastic and went straight to the top of the "to build" pile once I received it.

After some very careful drilling and pinning I have the Profimodeller tail wheel detail set complete and ready for painting.

I've also turned my attention to the wings and adding the AIMS wing extensions, these are really nice resin castings which are slightly oversize and are going to need some sanding to blend them in to the existing wing profile.

Pretty happy with this as it is much easier to carefully sand the resin parts down rather than having massive steps to fill and try and blend in.

 

As ever, thanks for looking in.

 

Regards. Andy

Awesome, Andy. I've got a 388 I picked up from a guy that's at about this stage, and I've been looking for a reason to finish it. 

 

You just gave me a reason.

If this goes well Ernie I will definitely be in for a 388 as well as a house extension as this is pretty big. I'm guessing you have plenty of room in your hanger for your Gotha, Felix and 388........ :hmmm:

WOW! Some excellent work here :)

Watching with great interest, Ju-188 is definitely one of the most beautiful WW2 airplanes and one of my favorite too.

 

Best regards

Hubert
