    Just be patient until you finish the whole model (which is not far from now~) I'm sure the result will be nice.

    About printing, it depends how eager you are to see your creation come alive:). I like to print when I am designing because it gives me an idea what is really happening with the model. When you start building it, you discover problems sometimes that are not obvious (especially when modeling without proper scale and not considering paper thickness). I think the best way to design a model is good and accurate design process combined with printing whenever you finish an independent part of your model. By independent I mean a part or section of you model that is not directly connected to other parts in your model. For example, in your case I would finish the tail and print it to see how it comes out and if it can be assembled without major headaches. This is my take on that. Others will give you different strategies. Enjoy building you model and find whatever works for you.

    Hi Yaniv
    I agree with Fimdan. Printing out and trying to assemble section by section. Especialy the first section. Mock up gives you to know problems those will happen to next next sections. For ex paper thickness problem on my U-Boat, when i tried to lay hull plate on keels position was shifted by paper thickness. I calculated compensation value then sizing down all keels of all sections. That prevents me for lost time on miss designing.

    Oops, you have a problem. I am not sure if I see it but it looks like you should have those formers aligned. I always make sure that everything is aligned when I draw each piece.

    One way you can fix it is by creating a big "cutting" surface that will run through the middle of your model. Now you have to move all the curves to that surface. Start by selecting the "int" checkbox in the snap menu (bottom of the screen) and drag each part until it intersects with the surface. Hold the shift key when you drug. If you do it right each curve should "catch" the surface at the intersection point. When you done, you will have them all aligned.

    I hope this helps.

    How can the parts look aligned in the rendered views but not in the wireframe?

    Hi Janiv

    Hope you can fix it but maybe it's a blessing in disguise with all you have learned so far it will only take a quarter of the time to redo and you will most likely make a better final job of it.

    Keep at it mate whatever !!!!

    I took a look at the file you sent me and it's right where it should be. It's pretty easy to accidentally drag something so I dont think your whole model is messed up but maybe there is some stuff since you sent me the file that might be out of place.

    When I get the chance if you haven't already figured out the fairing between the fuselage and the wing I'll give a few pointers.

    Thats all part of learning the program, Yaniv.:grin:
    On your next model, you will know better now, right?

    It takes a lot of time and practice to learn this program, but you really only need 3 things to do it.
    A computer, an Internet connection, and a brain!

    Apparently, you have all 3 and you are definately putting a lot of time and effort into it and it will just keep getting better and better!

    You go Nobi, I mean, Yaniv!:twisted:

    You'll figure it out, Yaniv. I am sure of it.:wink:

    There is a lot to this program and you have a long way to go but you are learning fast.

    I am impressed with your progress!

    It is easy to see you have been putting a lot of time into learning this software and I have a lot of confidence in you for that.:)
