Parts: 14 / 101
A little bit tricky to shape, but fits very well.
and the four pipes on every side.

Parts: 13 / 114
Difficult parts to build, due to the necessary shaping. Needs also a lot of time. These parts took me about 4 hours.
Please notice the two openings on both side of the cockpit (air vents for the guns), compared with the instruction picture. You have to shape them step by step - first I had the impression the part is too large. Dangerouse error if handling glue too fast.
the front section and the prepared small parts. Glue the front section first in the center and than one "wing" after another.
Parts: 12 / 126
The same procedure as for the first hull parts. The colouring of the model is very fine, but it costs you a lot of awareness...
That´s it for today...
You sir, are a paper Wizard!8)
Quick question, not being an aircraft guy (yet :roll: )...
What is the substance you are using to back the former parts with? It looks like it might be balsa wood, but I'm not sure. In other build threads I've seen it appears folks are using a pressed cardboard (like that stuff in shirt packages). If so, what thickness are you using in either instance?
I can see I'm going to have to build a plane at some point, those being my first loves from my days as a plastic (shhhh!) modeler.
Of course, I'm fully reformed now and wouldnt dream of making a plastic kit... I havent seen anything that paper can't do yet!
I´m using ordenary (pressed) cardboard. Thickness is 0,8mm (**-sign) and 0,5mm (*-sign). 0,5mm cardboard is used for all cereal packages or pizza, etc.
No problems with this material, sometimes I use CA-glue to stabelize sharp edges or thin shapings.
Parts: 16 / 142

First the inner parts for the tailwheel.
