  2. Hi all! Thank's a lot for kind comments. This is last update in this year, so Thank you for watching my thread and Invite you next year. Last thing which I'd like to show you this year will be construction from diffrent profiles to which all panels of machine gun bay were fastened. First I made a template, than I started to fix each profile. This is the final effect. Dry fitting on the model. Happy New Year for all of you, many successes in scale modelling. Tomasz
  3. Hi Gents! Nice to meet you before Christmas! I changed my area of intrest to the rear part of the aircraft - tail. Stabilizers and elevators will be first. I made them earlier, but now I had to join all together. This is the effect. I wish you Merry Christmas Tomasz
  4. Hi Guys! It;s nice to read such kind comments. Continue my story about undercariage I have to say that I was afraid of the end effect. The most difficult part was to find the idea how to do, as always. Next hundreds of fittings. Few photos of assembling set. I had to improve wheels. I added break system with arms, cords and small wheels. There is no one strut, which be added during finish assembling undercarriage with fuselage. Here dry fitting with this strut. And fitting with frame of fuselage. Nice watching. Tomasz
  5. Hi everybody! Long time from last update. Thank's Shepard for reminder. I have still worked on this project, but I had no time to write something. Main subject was undercarriage. Few words about leg and axle covers. I made them from styrene sheet formed on wooden molds. I used blowtorch to heat plastic. Half of undercarriage will be with covers and rest without. Main leg with bracket without covers. Second one with covers. Part on the top of the cover I made using vacuform. When all parts were ready I had to imagine how to join
  6. Many thank's for all of you for such pleasure comments. I'm glad you appreciate my efforts. Leci, leci i nic na to nie poradzimy. Fajnie, że się obaj odezwaliście. Gieniu, musimy znowu trochę pogadać. Niestety czas leci za szybko. Dawno nie gadaliśmy, musimy się zdzwonić, tak jak z Gienkiem. A może jakieś spotkanie wspólne?. I've made undercarriage. Good news: I can use wheels from the kit, rest of parts must be scratch. First time I decided to vacuform parts, but I write more in next post. Regards, Tomasz

  8. Hi everybody! Four years passed from the start of this project. I didn't realize how it will be time-consuming. I don't know how long my work will be last yet. But I know that one day i finished this aircraft. So for fourth anniversary I decided to join fuselage with lower wing. Regards, Tomasz
  9. Hi! Painting will be long process because of masking, many small pieces of tape etc. But now, My Boeing can breath. I had got exhaustes from Vector and I thought simple work. When I compare them with photos I changed my mind. I could use only outlet ends. So many problems, fitting, glueing etc. I use wood scorcher to form plastic tubes. I can also take a breath, small breath. Nice watching Regards Tomasz

  13. Hi everybody! Last update this year. First, I'd like to thank all of you for very kind comments, for watching my thread. It's pleasure to be in so good company. And returning to the project. Frame after filling and sanding Next, I added small fasteners to each side I was thinking about leather covered padding around the edge of the cockpit for a long time. How could I make it. And this "How" is sometimes most difficult part of work. After few attempts I decided to use double electrical cabel. And next few evenings some surgery, how to cut this cabl
  14. Hi Gentlemans after Christmas. I moved my interest on cockpit area. I decided to prepare surface around the cockpit. I will paint this area before installing machine guns to avoid difficultis with masking. So I had to make windscreen. I discovered there are three separate glass instead one piece windscreen from set. These glass were mounted in special frame with groove. Windscreen's frame requires filling and sanding, but after that it will be ready for painting. Regards Tomasz

  18. Hi! Thank's for your kind opinions. Yes, You are right. May be one day. Thank's for invitation. Most of parts are painted before assembling. I'll have to mask different areas with small pieces of tape. It will be time-consuming. If we are talking about painting few words about paint. I had to mix four diffrent paints to get proper grey using FS template. I like Gunze paints. And proportion: 1 part 314, 1 part 115, 3 parts 35 and 3 parts 332. This paint is used to metal airframe, for skin it will be lighter shade. I managed to add few arms with their details last week. Curre
