Superb! This thread is now a "Sticky".
WOW! This is not a simple build thread: this is an "how to" following all the work step by step. Great work!!!! Great photo covering!!!
Waiting next steps...
Thank you Rhaven. Thank you Zathros. Thank you Tonino. Thank you Bigpetr.
It's a simple way to do a humble tribute to Uhu's way to assembly models: just following the master.
Sincerely? Part after part, glue drop after glue drop, when I assembling this model I fell like in side the Uhu's mind, and it's amazing! Every little detail to construct some special without unlevel edges is something . . . wow! Just incrideble.
Thanks you for seeing this process (and, please, sorry my poor english).
Now I'm preparing the parts 6-A and 6-B, at the same time for parts 7-A and 7-B. Together, the result.
Some close-ups . . .
And, a little detail of folding the joined parts. I understood that the central part, in green, don't need to fold, but only the lateral tabs. I hope that I'm right . . .
I apologize for the poor quality of the photos from now because my mobilie had sudden death, and I'm using an old mobile with lower resolution camera. Sorry. . .
Finally for now, the awaited first pre-construction is starting!!
Note, please, that the part #3, beetwen the other parts, hasn't the half sides as a mirror, because each side goes to a particular part to assembly.
Personally, I would have cut off those triangle tabs and connected it from the inside with strips where needed, and a bead of glue to act like a weld where tabs could not bend, though you can bend one left of any tab by cutting small slits as the base, the bending such a tab. A bed of glue across the bottom will give the strength back, and you will have no part offset. I think though that you will manage to have no part offset caused by tabs, and I look forward to seeing your method. I used to take a small metal machinist rule and step the tabs so the parts would fit, but tired of that and just cut them off. Cheers to a fantastic job so far.
Thank you, Zathros, for your clue. I'll remember this during the job. I was thinking just about a possibility of somting like you told me, but I'm afraid to make a mistake, and your tip was a good help! Thank you.
A little new step, now I'm showing this parts joined.
Now, my dears, I'm asking for a suggestion.
In back of part #3 I have a cut to join inside, but, at the moment, I couldn't find a piece to use for this, like the part #3-B. I'm thinking to use some little piece of paper to do this. Or the part is there, but I couldn't find the tamplate? Have someone a very appreciate help to me? Thanks, guys.
*NOTE* I HAVE NOT BUILT THIS MODEL!
I just looked through the instructions. To me, it looks like you just edge glue the seam together (I would suggest using a thin piece of paper to give it a bit of strength). It looks like there are other interior parts (I think parts 8-11) that will but up to that part.
Best of luck with it!
Thank you, Raven. I thought about doing something like that, and now I have more confidence. Grateful to accompany this work and contribute to my success!
You are welcome I am glad that I was able to help you. I am looking forward to seeing how it will turn out.
Thank you, Rhaven. Step by step, I want to do my best. And, be sure that any help is welcome.
Are you doubling some of those parts, and making the tabs then line up on the same plane? Like in the pic below? It looks like that, could be an illusion, but it a damned good idea, if you are, or if you aren't. An alternative to cutting off tabs, cut off the tabs, and glue that part to the part with tabs. It would make for an incredibly sturdy model too. I have done this when I have messed up parts, rather than trash a model. I think they are almost always fixable. This is coming out excellently!!
Doubling up on parts parts (like you had shown). It makes sense to do such. It looks like it would add strength to those areas.
Dears Zathros and Rhaven,
In fact, in that photo indicated by Zathros above, I have two parts joined. But, the central area of entire set will not doubling, but only the tabs, because with this way I can give to foot place (thread #21) strength and correct curves.
Thinking about steps 8-11, as you told me, I'll wait a little to join that parts. Maybe it place that area of part #3 in the correct place easily. We'll see. Thanks, again.
