well here is my next project still in the begining...

what started has a 1/48 scale plane quickly turned out in a 1/24 plane...lets hope i can do this, its for a group build in a portuguese forum of scale modeling.

the big one next to the little kid



next stage, not going to close it because i'll work on the cockpit first







some putty





and melted sprue to level it ,and now im waiting to sand it so i can make the final leveling of the structure




its still in the beginning but wanted to share it with you so you can help me

the work its slow because of the waiting time between layers ... but now the lower part of the fuselage its leveled now next stage, making the photoetched to the cockpit then will close the fuselage











will only glue them after they are painted.





anyone know the size of the cockpit seat in 1/24

ty u all...
some pogress finished one of the lower wings...7 hours 2 do it...i guess this will take a while to fly

gluing 2 parts of plastic to get 3MM .



after 24h glueing , i've saw it give some hot air to the plastic with an hairdryer and bend it to the shape i desired, than sand it and ....the result







then attached this to the wing, looks better



and applied putty to it



sand it and the final result









well only 3 more to go

a little update...the 2 twin wings


making the rear wings












finished item



all 4 wings finished



and recicled a can beer(from a football match or soccer if you prefer) into a seat...





after seeing that you could see the upper side of the cockpit interior i changed my approach in how to close the upper body of the plane,











doenst looks good but thats how it should look after some melted sprue applyed

has you can see i didnt closed the machine guns spot neither the cockpit spot....because i'll build a single piece to close the cockpit later so i can paint the interior before i apply it (problem solved)

cockpit finished





















and plane closed and i am now waiting for the putty to dry so i can start the sanding job to level it
