Here the center mast is glued in and building the engine nacelles

The location of the nacelles is shown highlighted in blue

and glued in place

testing the fit by making small holes for the toothpicks from the mast and rear fuse to boom struts, but nothing glued yet, this is not stable without the long wingtip struts

That's it! Go for it Possm, what do you have to lose? and it really is fun to have a S-38 in your collection. I might make it look a bit easy, but still it is a fg style build, just the plane itself has more parts than most, hopefully can finish it up today

here are the essential struts to have a stable assembly. I leave extra toothpick end length and make holes in wing/fuse so that they can be adjusted. the only ones glued in are the rear fuse to boom (glue not dry) and the mast (very dry)

marked in red are the corresponding holes in the wing if visable on the above pic

once the toothpicks are in the appropriate holes in the wing, then the whole floppy bird can be adjusted until you like the positioning, look at it from all angles, even from the top for twist, and when you like it apply some glue to each junction without removing them. Ive made a temporary support for the hull as the gear don't have the outside suports yet and cant hold it up

Thank YOU Possm for supporting this effort, and I hope this makes it easier for folks to build, it looks intimidating, but step by step isn't that bad, although I have a few details to polish up and some important struts still

I've also been enjoying your build thread. Boy you work fast! (I'm sure it helps being the designer of the model.) And you've done a very good job so far.

By the way, possm was right about the cleanliness of your table. My modeling space looks like a tornado has passed through.

thanks, July, now I'll have to make one with your paper for durability and color...yeah I don't really know how many of these Ive built, but I thought the instructions needed some assistance visually

While building the S-38 I found the strut - outer gear to engine nacelle- too long or off scale. I had to shorten the strut about 10 mm on the large model (~5mm on the smaller size) the other struts seemed pretty good, so didn't affect the geometry overall.

since I was working off my own files I have to think this is probably off on the fg model too

I'm sorry this is all for this thread at present, since x-mas is over and the plane was a gift, did get cylinders done but still left a few things missing
