So I will attack this little brute. Being off the subject what group build is it might like to join in. Okay guys here are the pictures.

    Okay here is the first update I knocked off for the night and save some more work tomorrow. As to the construction of the engine and cockpit assemblies I wet ahead and primed all the parts on the trees. When dry I removed the engine and cockpit parts cleaned them up and re primed them all over again. The engine was assembled first there are 7 parts to this tiny engine I pray my eyeballs will hold out, after assembly I re primed the engine and let dry. Next I airbrushed on two coats of RLM Gray and let this paint dry over night tomorrow I will give it a wash to bring out the details next will be the cockpit and joining of the fuselage assembly. Here are the pix

    Just realised, the box art looks like Hermann Goering's aircraft.

    Okay here is update No.2 when it comes to the interior details on this kit there is a lot to desire. you can go do much in such a small scale. As from the last update I went ahead and gave the ebgine a wash and let dry went and finished up the pilots cockpit details I added seat belts to the wicker seat the Dv11 had. Letting this dry for the night and tomorrow I will button up the fuselage assembly. during drying time of the engine I went and removed both wings and the tail feathers from the sprues, This kit is a flash pig its everywhere so anyone who wants to build this kit be prepared for a lot of clean up work I spent 45 minutes cleaning up the intire kit from the flash.. Here is the update pictures for the night.

    It is an excellent detail in the engine and cockpit :shock:, despite a difficult kit and scale is very small. Well done Boats.

    (by comments from colleagues, I can see you're back in the forum, I have a short time ...:arrow: welcome back)
