Dragon / CE 109D ...

Cool! I have that CE set, too. IIRC, it's designed for the Hasegawa kit, so it'll be interesting to see how well it adapts to the Dragon one.

 

Thanks Kevin.  Yeah it's made for the old Hasegawa kit but it's line up pretty well so far.

I'm using the Kagero drawings.

Stay tuned .

This will be a good looking bird. Always enjoyed the sleek lines of the 109.

You will make her go fast and look good doing it.

It's great that you have the Cutting Edge set. This will be a nice project to follow. Very cool Mike.

Stuck the nose parts together with temporary glue (Microscale Liquitape) to see if

everything flushed up. Looks OK with a little adjustments to take care of.

 

First cut off the leading edge of wingroot ...

Everything lines up pretty well...

This part needs to be cut from the Dragon part ...

These areas need to be flushed ...

So I'll soak the nose in a bowl of warm water and seperate everything and rebuild with CA..

No major issues so far  :whistle:

I'll tag along if I may, as  I'm planning a similar conversion but using the Eduard 109E-1 as the donor kit with the Alley Cat conversion. The Alley Cat set only supplies two panels to replace those with the underwing radiators rather than the complete lower wing mid-section like yours but otherwise is almost identical.

Hi John, I'm not using the CE underwing mid section as the landing gear openings

are too far forward to match up with the Dragon fuselage openings.  Oh well  :shrug:
