  1. Hi gent's!

    Thank you all once again for kind opinion. It's encouraging me to further progres of my project.

    I finished to install last ribs on the tip of the wing. I also made fixing between ribs and spares with rivets. Present look of wing. Nice watching.

    I like to watch close-up photos, because I can also check my work, like on last photo - I had to glue one of fixings.

  2. Hi everybody!

    Thank's for watching and kind opinions.

    Today continuation of wing construction. When I made all ribs I started to think about spares. In first version I'd like to make both spares fragmented on parts glued  between ribs. I made front spare in this case, but I was affraid of geometry of second one. So I decided to do it in one piece with incisions on ribs. I had to do the same in ribs. I made base with drawing of the wing as always and started to complete structure. First ribs on place.

  3. Hi everybody!

    Thank's for comments.

    Yes, very amazing! LOTS of hard work but amazing work. :popcorn:

    Yes, you are right, lots of hard work, sometimes this is war, an uphill struggle, but satisfactory on the end.

    Today my ribs factory. I had to make 17 ribs, 15 the same. So I made my template first. I cut it from telephone card.

    image_zps6354bb11.jpg

    I chose telephone card due to the fact that i took Tamiya thin cement to join parts of ribs. I put my template on metal plate and i attached using Tamiya tape. I made ribs from evergreen struts of diffrent size.

  4. Hi!

    Thank you Hakan for kind comment.

    Time is ripe for wings. Lower wing for starters. I don't know who came up with an idea to make halves of wing such way. There is seam on bottom surface, so i filled it out ca glue. Surface of wing had to be reworked so i decided to sand it off.

    I've left starboard wing with full skin. I'd like to show spares and ribs of port side wing on the other hand. Leading edge wil be cut from kit part. So let's begin.

     

    image_zpsa5563a3c.jpg

     

    I made hole for a holder on the tip.

     

    image_zpsd87d5c26.jpg

     

    I had to fill empty space after cutting, so i used ca glue.

     

    image_zpsc88bc6f2.jpg

     

    First part finished.

     

    image_zpsb52d2a9d.jpg

     

    First rib is visible on last photo. Description how I made them in next post.

  5. Thank's guys for nice opinion. I'm glad that not so popular subject has a resonable circle of spectators.

    I decided to make starboard stabilizer without corrugated skin, only construction, spar, ribs, leading edge. First I made base with drawing of stabilizer and elevator. It will help me to get correct geometry of parts. I cut stabilizer leading edge and elevator front and trailing edge from kit part. Of course I had to sand off corrugated surface first. Rest parts this is scratch.

  6. Hi everybody!

    Thank you, my invincible watchers for your pleasant comments.

    I'd like to discribe my efforts into stabilizers today. There are stabilizers in one piece with elevators in the kit, so i cut them off. I decided that port stabilizer will be left with skin. I had to modify this part. First I made recess in rear part of stabilizer for hinges. I also reconstructed endings of ribs. I modified positive rivets line on surface. Elevator and stabilizer got wearing-irons. i also delicate milled rows on both sides of elevator witch were missed.

    This is the end of port side stabilizer, for now. I think that starboard stabilizer will be more intresting, but that's another story.

  7. Hi everybody!

    Thank's gentlemans for kind comments.

    I made hinges of the rudder to close this subject.

    I joined tentative fin with rudder using plastic rod as a spindle.

    When you have built model so long (now 2,5 years) your dream is to see the progress, you'd like to put all parts together. So I made dry-fitting the tail with fuselage.

  8. Hi!

    Thank's everybody for your opinion and watching once again.

    So as I said we take care of the tail. I fancied fin and rudder with skin from one side and open structure from the other side. There are these parts in one piece in the kit, so i cut them open. But how can i make skin, this is corrugated sheeting.

    I decided to use kit parts. I took hobby drill with various dental cutter and I had started to thin rudder first. I finished when it was almost like a sheet of paper. I rescribed corrugated skin from inside. For such project like this one kit is not enough. I've got three, god bless it's not expensive. So i cut trailing edge of the rudder from another kit. I made frames and reinforcements from plastic sheet and evergreen. I made the same with fin, but i had to cut leading edge from another part.

    There is mistake in the kit. Incisions for hinges should be in fin, not in the rudder, so i had to rectify this.

  9. Greetings!

    Continuation of my works within engine bay. I made carburator and other parts belong thereto based on photos.

    zdj1190cie5_zps785a00e5.jpg

     

    I had to touch lower air intakes. They consist of two tubes connected at an angle. There is a smaller tube inside. It was difficult to match intakes to main vertical tube and to carburator. Gunze liquid putty was usefull.

  10. Tomasz, what are you using to create your straps on the Intake tubing? Looks like very thin styrene cut into strips and either formed and/or glued to the piping and framework? Can you offer more detail? Looks incredible!!

     

    Brian~

    Yes, you are right. I made straps from thin sheet of styrene (0,1 mm). I glued thin Tamiya cement, place after place. I often use selfadhesive aluminium foil for straps. It's kind of foil applied in ventilation.

    Thank's a lot for your numerous kind opinion. I'm glad that you appreciate this kind of model making. I will endeavour to intrest you and not boring to much.

    Regards.

  11. Hi everybody!

    Next part of my fight with the engine bay. Today i'd like to describe one of the most difficult problem in this area - carburator's air intakes. There are four intakes, two on each side, upper and lower. Upper intakes are forked and have slope to the front. I had to keep correct angles of all construction and have ability to locate it inside the framework. I joined both upper intakes with vertical main tube first. I made use of drawings in corell.

     

    DSCF3344_zps25cd2e3d.jpg

     

    DSCF3345_zpsd4f8201c.jpg

     

    I glued mesh to the ends of intakes and next i put thin rings on them. I often use ca glue as a putty. I made the same in this case. Next I had to situated this part inside and to join with framework.

     

    DSCF3347_zps0e79376a.jpg

     

    DSCF3349_zps0c544b0f.jpg

     

    Intakes were fastened by clamping rings. Correct angel of gradient was very important because intakes had to be perpendicular to the upper bares of framework.

    This is not the end of difficulties but end of borring. See you next post.

    Nice watching.

  12. I for one am VERY interested in how, exactly, you're going to properly gap the microscopic spark plugs you will scratch build (of course) to ensure proper engine performance at scale altitude??!!

    I have to think about it!!!

    I relieved all construction of the base.

    DSCF3272_zpse21c2b94.jpg

     

    First I made box from 1 mm plastic sheet.

    DSCF3278_zpsdaf3edd5.jpg

     

    Next I glued skin of the walls. I made rivets, cavities etc.

  13. Hi everybody!

    I'm back after my holiday.

    This is my most advanced project, but of course i can show you my earlier models. They are more normal . If I have time I promise show you some photos.

    I suggest return to the front part of the fuselage. I decided, from the begining, to use Vector engine set dedicated to this model kit. I had to make engine mount. To this part was fasten thin oval ring. I considered to make it using copper wire and to solder all together. However I decided to use plastic. I fastened both rings to the base to get correct shape.

     

    DSCF3282_zps98379ee3.jpg

     

    DSCF3281_zpse8b4dae6.jpg

     

    Next, once again, I gently glued all construction to the base, to join all together.

  14. Welcome again!

    Return to fuselage.

    I made new skin in rear part, behind cockpit. If you remember we've got inside skin with imitation of frames and rivets.

    So go to the outside skin. I had to m,ake it from two separate parts.

    zdj1190cie26_zps2074d6e8.jpg

    zdj1190cie46_zpsfb283fd0.jpg

    zdj1190cie25_zpsffe7c297.jpg

    and next part of the skin. First attempt from alluminium foil.

    zdj1190cie23_zps379a807d.jpg

    zdj1190cie31_zps9e3ba1b4.jpg

    But I think that rivets made in foil were bigger then in plastic. So i decided to made this part also from plastic sheet.

  15. Welcome!

    For a change I decided to handle front part of the fuselage. I used corell to scale down photos of engine compartment first. I prepared base of construction next, which help me to get correct geometry. I glued both frames to the base using few drops of CA glue. I added first struts of framework next.

    DSCF3274_zps6d5c041a.jpg

     

    DSCF3275_zps9d18281e.jpg

     

    When all construction became stiff I detached framework from the base using debonder. I had to do it to add more rods.

    That is how I've started constructing maybe the most difficult part of my project.
