Thanks my friends for the kind words, much appreciated :)

 

As I said yesterday, the front wheel well is now complete and here are the last pics.

I finaly convinced myself to rework the rear most panel as the real thing is hollow when the kit part is not.

This is a see through part which shaw some extra piping, apparently a pump and a tank... so here we are:

And the all thing dry fitted:

Last pics makes me realise that it does not shaw the door actuator that I have rebuild with aluminium micro tubing... I guess I'll shot pics when I will work on the front LG leg and its actuator.

 

Thanks for following !

Hey guys,

 

does any of you building this kit noticed how awfull the front wheel is?

Getting a weighted wheel is a nice attention but the way it's done .... <_<

Thanks Peter !

 

Alain,

there is nothing that can not be fixed on the Wheel I think but it just shows that people who have designed this kit know very little about aircraft...   :shrug:

Loic,

 

You're off to a great start...that wheel well looks terrific: super-detailed and busy, like the real ones, with very clean and precise execution on your part.

Many thanks :)

 

Spent most of the weekend modelling activities working on the nose leg...

Lots of work to get a "clean" nice looking LG leg and lots of inspiration from the other builds here on LSP ;)

But I am pretty happy with the outcome I must say.
