But wait! You're going to build that in 5 weeks?
Er. Those pills you're on - if I slip you my address ... ;-)
Good luck in the competition.:thumb:
Nice choice, I just finished that one in April and it is a very nice build.
Heads up on some parts, I checked and Lech hasn't updated the drawings it seems. Both parts 119** (elevator formers) have the slots reversed. Here's a series of pictures. Sorry the descriptions on the pictures are in Spanish from my other forum:
1st: This is how the pieces should go together but the slots are backwards.
2nd This is how the pieces will fit if you cut the slots as printed.
3rd: Redrew the lines and the formers fit correctly.
4th: Completed elevator former.
Hope this helps. It took me about 4 weeks 2-4 hours a day on the model. It was my first aircraft build (my 15th model build), so took a bit longer.
The best of lucks with your building, Chris! It is indeed a very good looking plane.
I can see it has all the elements for a sturdy model. Keep it up! Five weeks are good enough for this model.
Thank's and you're welcome. If you run into any hardspots, feel free to give me a shout.
Nice job Chris, I used wire and the cheap cotton buds that have the stick made from rolled paper. You can split the cover layer and unwrap to the desired thickness, a touch of glue along the edges and a perfect tube.
Very good job, Chris. I will follow your progresses with great interest.
Looking good Chris. I had similar problems with fitting the inner to outer skin also. It seems to be a little to large. Same with the observer's section.
How can I open 7ZIP on an iMac?

ROTFL - I hear ya CD. I seem to have the same requirement on all my builds.
Keep up the great work. Either your fingers are huge or that's some great work on some very small parts. Looking forward to seeing your build progress.
Real nice Chris. The cupola on mine was off just a tad as well, it wasn't much, but I notice it.
When you get started on the wings, you'll think your building a flying balsa wood model, they are that sturdy.
Wow! That is A very clean and accurate build, I am impressed with your skills.:thumb:
Very nice! The cockpit is so detailed for such a small model.
this is looking great....you're doing a fantastic job
Hey Chris, nice job on the lower wings. The designs from Lech at CardPlanes are pretty good. Besides this one, I've also built the Bartel BM-6 which uses a similar system for the wings. You can pretty much stay warm and fuzzy until the end, the rigging can be a little difficult, but not to bad.
Have a good one.

looking really good:thumb:fancy a dogfight wiv my wak albatrossign1
cdcoyle, that's a fine build. :thumb::thumb::thumb:
If you'd never mentioned the build problem, then only a
dyed-in-the-wool rivet-counter would have picked at it.
You have a lot of patience.
Very good job!:thumb:
Nice job so far Chris. I remember having some problems with the upper wing as well, a real tight fit. For the braces, I used 1/8" wood dowel. Just made the holes in the supports the same size, they are close to a 1/8 anyhow.
Heads up on the rigging, the drawings can be a little confusing.
Have a good one.
