To misquote Python- "...the only reason that bird was still on that perch is because he was Glued there!" :wink: :lol:

In any event really neat :wink: Reminds me I'm suppose to make a bird mobile for my Grand Daughter. :oops:

A couple more pictures are on my website.

This is the regular size version. Not one of my better efforts - I had real trouble getting the two halves of it together! :x

As some of you may already know, I've decided to build the Boeing Model 299 for the Fiddlers Green Modelling Madness contest over on the Paper Modellers site, but thought I'd post pictures of my progress here too. I've made a start and managed to assemble both wings:-

Image

Looking good so far, although one thing I noticed is that the black stripe along the upper surface of both halves of the left wing (top in the photo) don't quite match up, although the lettering on the lower surface does :?. Not much I can do about that now.

Looks great so far Chris :D

Thanks guys :D. It is indeed a big project Bob, in more ways than one - each wing is 12 inches across, so the final wingspan should be a bit over 25 inches or so :shock:.

Can't tell you how many times I've shoved this one back in the file folder. :lol: :lol: There was someone over on papermodelers that built it with electric motors to turn the props :shock: Did you see that one :?:

Wow, no way I can compete with that - I'll get me coat! :lol:

Anyway, I was able to get a bit more done today than I expected - the tailplane is now assembled and the fin/rudder is cut out:-

Image

I had a bit of trouble with the centre section of the tailplane. Neither of the tailplanes themselves would fit into it properly, so I had to slit it open at the join and glue it on as best as I could. I ended up with a small gap at the rear, but this should be hidden inside the fuselage:-

I've now managed to assemble the nose, the middle part of the fuselage, the upper fuselage, and the wing spar:-

Image

The fuselage only has slots marked where the spar is supposed to go, but it's impossible to fit unless an entire section of the fuselage is cut out first :roll:. Now, to finish the rest of the fuselage.
