  1. Hi everybody!

    Long time from last update.

    Thank's Shepard for reminder.

    hi Tomasz... any progress on this master piece of yours?

     

    cheers

     

    shep

    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 together. All construction must be strong and all angels correct, but about it in next post.

  2. Many thank's for all of you for such pleasure comments. I'm glad you appreciate my efforts. 

     

    This looks great!

    Tomek, to już cztery lata? Ależ ten czas leci...

    Leci, leci i nic na to nie poradzimy. Fajnie, że się obaj odezwaliście. Gieniu, musimy znowu trochę pogadać.

    Ha, Tomku!! A tak niedawno zaczynałeś. Na pewno cztery? Zatem cytując klasyka - "Langsam, langsam aber sicher.." ;)

     

    PS. Gienek, co u Ciebie, zgubiÅ‚eÅ› do mnie numer ?!!  :hmmm:

     

    PS2. Today only in polish. We have National Day of the Constitution.  :)

    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.

  3. Hi!

     

    Each update just gets better and better Tomasz. Incredible stuff. I still have no idea how you're going to manage painting all this stuff.

     

    Kev

     

    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

  4. 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.

     

    IMG_1462_zps0df1c668.jpg

     

    And next few evenings some surgery, how to cut this cable to get satisfactory effect. 

    This is the result, only fitting.

    Happy New Year for all of You, happy modelling, great projects.

    See You next year.

  5. 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.

  6. Hi!

    Thank's for your kind opinions.

    I spotted some extra wires on top of the fuel tank...

    Hubert

     

    Yes, You are right.

    I hope one day you can bring this over to the UK for Scale Model World? It would without doubt win something! Amazing work..

     

    May be one day. Thank's for invitation.

       :thumbsup:  .... but I can't help wondering how you are going to paint this all once assembled  :hmmm:

    Looking forward to what's next !

    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. Current look.

  7. Fantastic work of this superbe upgrade.

    I have seriously been thinking about scratchbuilding a Vickers Wellington a short while back ... :mental:

    That would be a hudge lot of resin !

    I'm waiting for injection kit to cut all structure of fuselage, wings and stabilizers.

    Good luck in new project.

    Tomasz


  8. Hi!

    I'm glad you like it.

    I know that is not a main stream, but so many kind opinions give me kick for further works.

    that browning should be a master for resin copies so we can all get some!

    Yes, Peter. I gave my brownings to my friend. I think he is able to make copies, but it could be difficult because they are empty inside and very crispy.

     

    seeing those wing "ribs" reminds me of my balsa wood/tissue/dope control line planes I used t build.

     

    what did you use as a template/guide for those "ribs"?

     

     

    I cut the shape in telephone card and fastened to metal plate. I used 0.5 mm evegreen sprues and thin Tamiya cement to glue.

     

    And now all ribs are on place.
