    i was looking for an excuse not to do it but like, I entered looking forward to it and it will.

    searching the internet I found the mushroom Ref.6113 yellow book series and did not buy me what I needed to detail or rather to have references of what I have to detail the interior, hire slowly doing with patience and have the other plane .

    thanks to three.

    I put in to start cutting that comes surprisingly nothing has changed from the old mold of brown matchbox PK601 series, only the plastic with which injects.

    the assembly process will have to slow dimension many pieces that can be seen in the photos and perform, distribution around the ribbing a chore that I hope you do not have to do, shall begin soon as soil has cer parts and stuff.

    Thanks gentlemen.

    as work is slow at the moment with 138 yesterday while awaiting the start of the F1 will put his hand to this, more exactly, we check the distribution of frames and ribs to go placing them, I use canes ABS measures I found smaller than 0.5x0.5:

    0.5 round:

    so I'll take a side in the absence of finish and the other with the first already in place:

    IMG_2896.JPG

    IMG_2897.JPG

    and finally did the test that everything fit well and look good with half saw

    I will continue working on it slowly

    because the truth is that the plane gains a lot with this little I've done for now, it seems very difficult to do these things means good interior detailing when designing the models, but even when they have not thought about photoetched or resin shows to do so.

    Although there emmpresas your you send the project that you wish to occur and you do it by the number of pieces you ordered, but clearly this must be ordered thousands of pieces to be profitable and that has a price that many can afford and few can buy later, will be a matter of thinking about investing in a 3D printer

    Another one of those interesting string of flying boats that came out of Britain between the wars. Nice start Sergio.
