  1. Good morning to all I molded the 6 hatches, before pouring the resin, I inserted L shaped wires, so it's thin and solid. And now, the engine, a Piaggio PX R. The first thing you see is the oil radiator. I tried different materials A: Evergreen striped card, easy to stick but still oval, too thick and grooves too deep and spaced. B: thinner card, hand streaked, still oval..... C: copper wire, remains round but too heavy for supports (0,5 mm rods) D: the winner, 0,3 mm alu litho plate.
  2. A big thank Messieurs for your adorable comments, Old Fotocut drilled nuts threaded on 0,2 mm copper wire and old Contrail profile, nostalgia...... A few more parts on the main float and a coat of primer.
  3. Hello gentlemen, Sme details on the masts of the central float, always renforced with inox tube Contrail profile. Rhodoid square is only there for the photo.......Six hatches are missing and will be cast in resin. At the rear of the masts the "big" pulley where the rudder cable runs. Here, two small pulleys on each side.
  4. Thank you for your feedback. Peter, if you’re looking for a guide to make beautiful models, look at the P-51 C by airscale.
  5. Tests for attaching floats : The small The big. I used Contrail profiles reinforced with a stainless steel tube Since nothing is stuck, it may seem wonky........ The engine cowl support must take into account that the propeller axis is shifted up and left.
  6. Even though I think I’ve seen it before, it’s still pretty. Good job sir !
  7. Some details on the central part of the upper wing: Have a nice day !!!!!!!!!!!!!
  8. Many thanks Peter, when I grow up I’ll try to make models like you ! Alain
  9. Hello, a little tired with the wings : The floats. The largest come from Arado 196 B by Revell. It has been shortened reduced in height but widened and the bottom vacuformed. Thanks to Revell France after sale service. For the small floats, plugs in balsa. 1 mm plastic card is used. To follow............
  10. Not here quite a while, sorry. Wing tips added, correction of the front of the cowl (too large) and beginning of the engraving of the central part of the upper wing. Grey Alclad primer is used to see where Milliput is required.
  11. Hello, Little work on the fin: Contrail profile and Gaspatch turnbuckle. Left upper wing And a blank mouting to motivate me.
  12. Lovely, très beau, bellissimo !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  13. Hi Peter, the same process for this: The two handles (black arrows) on the trailing edge of the upper wing made with a master (red arrow) used to thermoform these parts (blue arrow). The hinges and bracket of the rudder are glued. After a couple of days (putty, sanding, primer) the join is smooth. Anti-skid strips added. Hinges for the flap allowing the folding of the wing and lot of drains have to be moulded using Milliput footprints and melted plactic.
  14. Hi, this not too bad for a guy with two letf hands ! Cheers. Alain
  15. Hello Clark, for the 38 louvers on the front of the plane, the merit is due to a marking gauge I made with a balsa stripper. Here the link, sorry, in french: http://www.master194.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=103658&start=75
