Hello Milan,

 

Just caught up from page2.

Very methodical,FLAWLESS and Inspiring work.

Very very nicely detailed and if you're going to make a model to get it as close to the real Aircraft is IMPRESSIVE on your part.

Love the exceptional detailing on your model and use of PE et al..

 

:bow:

:wow: :clap2:

I edited another "little" nose issue. I don't know if this was in my kit only, but i noticed some kind of a warp or a dihedral curve along the sharp part of the leading edge, symmetrical on both sides, and that curve followed a perfect shape on the top as well as bottom half of the fuselage.On the real plane that sharp part of the leading edge is impeccably straight, and this is easily noticeable on every single pic i have. Just an example:

So here is the top fuselage part and the leading edge, viewed at as close as possible to 0 degree angle - this is the port side leading edge:

and there, the same with the starboard side leading edge. I traced the warp with a red line:

After gluing the 2 halves, and with using quite some force, the warped edges are straight as they should be. This does not affect the other coplex shapes of the leading edge. The pics are quite zoomed....

Hi gents! Happy New forum, and here are some new silhouettes as well. :) It was a lot of gluing, filling, drying, sanding, with numerous repeats. Finally it's just about ready for priming.

The top side:

Some fine sanding and a soapy bath, and Mr.Surfacer is just around the corner :)

Brilliant work on the edge warp - even seeing/finding it took a lot of Sherlock Holmes detective work.

Looking forward to Mr Surfacer taking center stage

Keep ‘em comin
