Airfix gives you a good representation of the tail wheel. all the parts that need to be there are there. The only thing is the wheel well lack detail.

l build the interior to better represent what you would find when the access door of the tail is opened. Using drawings l have l was able to construct this as prototypical as l could

l kept checking to see if the tail wheel assemble fits properly

l even dry fitted the other fuselage half on to make sure everything fit and it looks proper

 

Well back to the wheel wells. Hopefully l will have those done and move on to the wing gun bays.

Well thats all for now

I'm seriously impressed Hacker. That is insanely good. I've pretty much tried to do the same thing on an A6 (another incomplete build) but have 'put it on the backburner'...I made some big errors. Looks pretty but wrong. :-(

 

I think becasue I tried to do it and understand how well this kit doesn't fit ( sloppy joints etc) it impresses me more and more.

 

No skype ATM...used up all my bandwidth downloading torrents :rolleyes: Will be online la proxima semana.

 

cya :-))

l have been working on the rear fuselage and l thought l would give you a look at what l have done so far. l have put in the ribs and the stringer then made the fuel tank and the gyroscope. l tried to detail it up as best l could according to the info l have. l hope this meets with your approval.

Anyways it wont be long before the paint starts flying. :P :lol:

HI You are doing a great job adding all the detail. Lookin Good

 

Yes, watching this excellent build avidly (as I have one of these Wulfs in the stash and [simpler] plans for it.) Would you mind saying something about how you did the fuel tank, Hacker? The shape where the fuselage curves round looks intricate, am interested in knowing how you made it look that neat...

l did some rework on the cockpit. l replaced the black wire with some solder that was of better diameter and more easy to use. l got it from a freind who didnt want it but l sure did.

l did some painting on it during the weekend. l painted it RLM 66 and did some detail painting. l still have to do some dry brushing on it but at the moment this is how far l am with it.

l got more painted then this but at the moment l am working on it so maybe tomorrow l will have some pics for you.
