Nice line work and detailing, for sure.  Good photography to boot!

 

Sincerely,

Mark

Hi Alain,

That plastic thing you have made to straighten the reverting is awesome something I might need to look into for my scratch build 1/24 Ki 61 Tony, great stuff mate this is one very unique model.

Hi all!

Thanks Mark, thanks Guy, although I confess I'm not too certain about what plastic thing your talking about!

 

Painted some other bits with the silver can:

It's time to look into those Jumo engines, to move this part of the build along. I wanted to avoid the joint inside the exhaust so I cut off that section out of one half, glued together, filled in and sanded smooth.

 

Once painted, I inserted the exhaust cone part and glued in place.

The result:

So far so good...

 

Bye for now,

Alain

Alain I am talking about the strips of styrene you put together that are sitting on the wing (the thin white sheet)it looks like you made it to place the lines in the wings great idea.

Hi Guy!
I think it's the word "reverting" that got me confused a bit! Yes it is used to draw two parallel lines. After measuring a couple times I thought making a template would save a lot of time and the rest was real easy!

Thank you Shaka!

 

I am now fitting together the engine pod parts. Petty good fit, but not a very smooth transition from the intake part to the others behind. There will be much sanding needed.

Here are the basic components for both engines. I will not add any detail to the engines themselves and will glue everything shut.

You can clearly see the kink on this top view:

I sand with a pretty coarse sanding block while the parts are held together with Tamiya tape.

One nacelle (roughly) done!

 

I used this image in German Aircraft Interiors (Merrick, Monogram books), which is almost exactly 1/32, to get the curve right:

The arrows point to the bottom contour of the nacelle in the book photo.

 

Thank you for watching!

Alain

Hello all!

A bit more progress on the engine nacelles today. Although I seem to be just fixing unexpected problems I find along the way. I guess it is progress of sorts...

 

A fair amount of epoxy putty was needed to blend in one intake to the nacelle.

There were pretty deep sink marks inside the intakes. I thought of blanking them off completely with a FOD cover, but I decided to fill in, in he end.

Let this dry overnight, sand tomorrow!

 

Goodnight!

Alain

Thank you Chris, much appreciated!

 

I decided to add the fasteners on the cowl by filling a slot in the plastic parts to the correct width.

After cleaning up the openings, I added little styrene bits to close off the lower part so as to create the correct size fastener opening, indicated by the pencil line.

Then 2 strips added and the whole area sanded down to the correct profile.  Finally a primer coat to check for surface defects.

Bye for now!

Hello all!

The engines are finally assembled and glued to the wings. The fit it not bad, but putty is required front and back.

The panel line have already been rescribed on the top of the wings.

The foot steps were also rescribed, in the correct size and location.

Here is the intake, after sanding the putty. I did not actually paint it, I primed  then applied silver Rub and Buff paste with a clean cloth.

Came out very polished looking.

Next are the first steps to clean up the nacelle to wing joint.

More primer, more sanding and tracing the lines for the rivets...

Coming along slowly but OK!

Bye for now!

Kudos, Alain. You just keep plugging away on this build like you see something on the end of the tunnel that I would have difficulty doing so.

 

I have tendency to lose interest when something is not going right -- and filling/sanding is right up there!

Thanks  Mark!

Here I wanted to have the look of the clip to be a separate part from the cowl piece. The curved shape of the plastic made this easy to achieve with a small file.

 

Thank you Shaka! I have to admit it is time big pieces get glued together. Marking all the rivets lines is pretty boring! I'm trying to concentrate on doing just this model

and finishing it, which is really not my usual way of modeling...

 

I also tend to loose interest, sometimes for no other reason than something else suddenly seems so much more inspiring, and jump from one project to another...

I may not be the only one like this!

 

Alain
