It's time to start another resin project  :)

Before Lukgraph announced this interesting plane I didn't even know that it exists. 

I have only limited reference for it (there is flying replica in Poland), so I will try to keep this as out of box build and to follow instructions supplied in the kit

 

The build doesn't look difficult, it has only one wing  :coolio:  and simple rigging

You get usuall Lukgraph kit - lot of resin parts, one big PE sheet, decal sheet, instrument panel sticker, personalized card and instructions.

well, was wroking on this one on and off in past days

as usuall with this kind of kits at the beggining you will spend a lot of time with cleanning, sanding and dry fitting the parts

 

I decided to glue wing together so I can work on it along with the fuselage. as usual I have used hph epoxy as a glue and filler as well

floats need some extra carefull sanding. There is nice amout of raised rivets whichcanbe lost because of sanding

Fuselage halfs painted and weathered

I don't have enough reference pics for interior so I'm following instrcutions

This kit is quite specific with high count of PE parts, what I really like, These days I prefer to work ith PE details instead of reisn ones just because of the all cleaning involved with resin  :rolleyes:

Very nice work.

If I may, the two-color artificial horizon seems somewhat anachronistic for the era (not that much will be visible, or many will notice, though)
