Hi Shaka!
Thank you!
So very simple really, but you need the very soft pewter type of foil which is just about impossible to find now. It seems that it has been replaced by a much more rigid aluminum/plastic sandwich.
Cheers!!!

I need to find a wino to give the wine to, as I don't drink. I wonder what the charge is for peeling the foil

off at the liquor store?

If the pilot pull the trigger will he shoot out the front?

This is definitely different!

You can always buy pewter sheets in an Arts & Crafts store ...

Real pewter foil have become very rare nowadays on wine bottles...France is not anymore what it used to be ;) ( that just refers to wine bottles;  don't believe a certain moron's declarations about Paris ;) )

Hi all! 

Thanks for the comments again, much appreciated!

 

The left side of the cockpit has been glued in place, puttied, sanded and primed.

You can note the gun access panel just in front of the wing...

I started making the components that will go in the fuselage interior. Bits of wiring, electrical boxes and various items...I used fine wire from cables, thin lead solder, some sprue bits and resin bits that look

the part.

Similar stuff on the right side. Just test fitting, no glue. Most painting will be done before assembly.

Also finally, tail parts and the scribed and riveted rudder, primed a while ago, but did not photograph until today.

Bye for now!

Hi Alain,

This is such a cool piece of modelling I hate being repetitive but this is so interesting as it unfolds looking forward to the next stage.

Not normally into 'Luft '46' - but love this project - very different to the standard 262 (and a lot better looking IMHO).  :)

 

And thanks for sharing techniques - what the forums are all about - learning from each other.  :thumbsup:

Wow! Another one I missed!! Some great techniques on display here, definitely going to be 'learning' them! Its going to make a very impressive and interesting model when finished.

Thank you Alan, Lain and Tim!

I am glad you enjoy the techniques, as I will try to show more during the build. 

 

I did more engraving work turning this time to the wings:

 

PVuZByO.jpg

 

Checking references, I found most scribed lines were accurate, so I just scribed over the raised detail, then sanded and

primed both wing undersurfaces.

 

I then drew lines where the rivets would go. Some rivet lines are double, so to help mark those I created a very simple template in thin styrene.

I will keep it for the fuselage as most of those are also double.

Here is the result. It is much simpler to do this before the wings are assembled!

Now more on the internal details. I gave a thin coat of white Tamiya primer on the wires before painting then yellow. One tank was also 

painted silver (also Tamiya can, Silver leaf).

Some of the bits in place with paint and weathering.

I make a "dirty" mix I apply first. I scrape various colors of dry pastels then mix with water. More water will make the mix less dirty...

In this case the silver finish meant I had to use more pastel pigment.

To check that all the detail will fit I made new 2 fuel tanks. I used the drawing for height and length, and the volume given (some calculations done...) to deduct the width.

Here is one, all sanded, in place.

When the bottom section is added, even I was surprised on how little will be seen...

Bye for now!
