I'm pretty happy with this build. The rigging was really fun for me on this one. :D

Good work Andy! Well done on the rigging too, something I've not attempted myself at all yet :oops:. Is that a bit of white paint you've used to touch up some of the joins? :)

Thanks. This was also my first 'serious' attempt at rigging. I practiced on the GeeBee first to get the feel for it. The paint is testors flat white acrylic and it's not too good on paper. The enamel flats cover much better I think. The acrylics are more like a dye than a paint...too watery and thin. It takes a few coats to get a good layer and cover. I should have used white-out instead.... :D

Maybe make the outer ring a little smaller :?: Or maybe remove some of the outer ring :?: Altho, it really doesn't really look that bad :wink:

Yeah I know, I had trouble with the wing-to-fuselage join too. Mine looks good viewed at almost any angle other than from the bottom. You did a great job on yours though :D.

Yeah, it really was a let down for me. I really like the color scheme on the FW. Here's what's on my board at this moment....

Have spent some time inking over every panel line. I have hopes for this one....we'll see. Best one I've seen yet is Bob Martins on the P38 model page. It's brilliant.

Not sure why they never labeled the booms left and right. :? I built three before it was pointed out to me that the black sides on the booms are suppose to be to the inside facing the canopy and cockpit. :shock: To reduce the glare of the aluminum toward the cockpit. 8) Thought I'd point that out in case you were unaware. Also I'd wait to cut out the wing slots in the booms until the wings are finished. :wink:

Thanks Bob. I have the booms labeled L-R...just incase. I agree, I'm not cutting the wing slots until the wings are done so I can eye out the area that needs to be cut.

I need some help/advice here!
Ran into a fit problem with the center pod and the wings. The curve at the wing roots doesnt nearly match the curve on the pod and I ended up with a hellish gap to fill. I made some cover pieces from 67# cover and joined them in now, I need to know what I might be able to do to either hide or blend the pieces into the wing...what a mess.

I will be adding white silkspan to the entire root section top and bottom. That's no issue as it dries nearly invisible but the white pieces will be very visible...this is a heck of a model to fit together...sheesh... :x

This one was a bummer! :( It was one of the earlier hand drawn ones. :( If I remember correctly , I think I actually cut the wing root curve to match the pod before I glued them to the pod. :? . Then I had to cut a little off the center tail elevator. I also think one of the wing roots was a little larger than the other one. :roll: All in all a nice lookin model. :) If viewed from a distance. :shock: Good Luck :wink:

Cut overlays for your patches from areas of a second set of printed wings, which should have regions free enough of panel lines to cover. Or you could even plot the patch with a panel line at an orientation that make the panel line blend in with the patch in place. However you do it, the wing should have ample area to supply the patches.

Hope that helps -

Another good Idea kid, 8) If I have to do patch work on some models, I simply refer to it as "Battle Damage." :shock: From serious aerial combat. :wink:

It was a fit-fight but I think I came out pretty good. I added the clear canopy, antennas and nose guns for some detail. It's hanging in my sons room...chasing the FW 190.... :D
