Markings are decals froms EagleCals EC#60

 

Does that include the placards on the gear as well? Those struts look absolutely great, and have finally convinced me that this sort of thing is a "must" for my future projects.

Yes, that was what I mean. All gear placards are from EC#60.

Here is the evening work on the main undercarriage : wheels and protection panels.

The brake line 'braided hose' part is black with a red-brown wash... Average result, difficult to reproduce real part (black hose with a red-brown straightening spiral wire), I will leave it like this. The braided brake line part will take its final shape once all undercarriage parts are attached.

 

I still need to brush paint a few details, and to apply a final dark wash inside wheels... Tires will get a last weathering work with pastels at end of assembly...

 

Note : Wheels and braided hose parts are MDC parts, thanks to Alan Troi (Hi Alan :( )

Not too late, undecarriage is now build and glued under the plane... The Dora immediately get her strange look of awkward bird...

A zoomed picture of right wing gear... Flexible part of brake wire is now bent to good shape. I still need to add both retraction arms and a few wires...

Tailwheel assembly (EagleParts), slightly rotated towards left side... I still need to enhance a bit some details and weathering... Note : this side of rudder is not yet weathered.

I really do hope a detailed build article is compiled from your posts in this forum Blackdog.

 

I just went back over (nearly) all the progress posts and was only disappointed that the earliest stuff seems to have been archived. I would love to study the whole build from the very beginning. Especially the bays and 'pit.

 

"One of these days" I'll gather enough courage to take on a Dora and a compilation of your build photos would have to be one of the best "how to" guides a person could ask for.

 

Really inspirational stuff!

Hi,

 

thanks for your messages, guys :blink:

 

about a whole article : not sure I will take the time to do it :blink:

 

BUT you still have the whole step by step posts and all pictures on this URL :

Unfortunately (for most) it is all in French, but you still have all the pictures...

 

Regards,

Hi all,

 

I was thinking it would be possible to finish this kit this weekend or at least work on most important remaining parts... I was wrong :huh:

 

I first started airbrushing the engine exhaust stains, with heavily thinned Tamiya Black, sprayed in thin layers with minimum pressure. Not too bad yet :

Then I started same work on right side... And at this time, s**t happened : a big drop of paint felt from the airbrush cup ... on the plane. Riht on the belly engine cowls, on yellow paint... I was forced to immediately wipe the paint to avoid more damage to other parts. And given the thinner percentage of the paint, it created large stains :angry: :angry: :thumbsup: :( :(

A large area of yellow cowling is damaged, as well as several cooler flaps...

 

There I had a few seconds of total despair pb_smiley_cry.gifpb_smiley_cry.gifpb_smiley_cry.gifpb_smiley_cry.gifpb_smiley_cry.gif

 

In fact I guess it is not THAT bad... I will mask all untouched areas around cowling to protect them, then I just need to sand/paint/weather the yellow cowl again...

Work will be not too difficult as the whole frontal part and propeller are removable, as they are attached by polycaps rings, and not glued...

 

Ok, I am returning to this task now, i hope to have it fixed before tomorrow...

S**t!! That´s business man...

I had same accident with the airtube of my airbrush. The color swaped out of the pod and the hole color hit only my trousers

Luck in bad luck....

 

I think you´ll fix it very soon. But i know these few seconds of unconsciousness...

 

I´m looking forward to it, Chris!

 

Cheers

Oops buddy :blink: S**t

I know the frustration you feel... remember when Zip the Cat smashed my nearly finished Phantom?

A friend of mine told me something I will never forget: "If you are struck with lemons, make lemonade".

I am sure you wil repaint your 190 even better than before.

Bon courage !

Yep, I know this too....**** happens! sad.gif Unfortunately always when you're sure: yeah, this is my best bird ever...........BAAANGGGG! Ok, let it rest on the workbench for a few days and then start again, as you mentioned it's not too hard to fix because of the removable parts....but that's modelling.


good luck, keep up the great work

cheers

Chris "the ripper"

Sorry to hear that, Black Dog!!! You would have heard me from anywhere in the house had it happened to me!

Of course, I think that sometimes the best modeler isn't the one that can build the perfect model, it's just the guy who does the best job of fixing the mistakes!
