It is time to put the individual parts together, the model begins to remind Beaufighter

Image

I corrected the landing lights I think they look a lot better now

Image

I still have to close the upper and lower fuselage connections because in the real plane these were uniform sheets of sheet metal. CA glue is perfect for this

When the glue dries and hardens, I polish the surfaces and apply a rivet grate. This will be the riveting end. Black tape protects the surface already done.

And ready. Finally the end of riveting.

Image

mentioned rivet net in the vicinity of the cockpit

Image

Finally I begin to fold all the parts and slowly prepare model to painting.

Image

Unfortunately, it will take some time because I ordered a mask to painting and chassis niche from Brasin.
I hope that I will be able to show the results of the work soon.

Welcome again after a long break. I finally received the ordered parts and I can start working on the model. On the attached picture you can see the model prepared to cover the surface primer.

Image

They will notice that the air intakes for the compressors have been changed. I noticed my mistake while looking at the pictures and luckily managed to make a change.
Using the new parts, I also improved the chassis and applied resin flaps that look much better. I rescinded the replacement of the chassis cavity for resin because it was too risky to damage the model.

Image

The whole model has been covered with Black Primer with Ammo Mig and for the moment is presented so.

Thannks :)
Part of the model was coated with MrHobby C8 varnish as a backdrop for future abrasions

Image

Image

now Chipping fluid and MrHobby H12. Next? Normal brush and water and fear not to wipe too much.
On the bottom of the model I placed postshading

Image

for me it looks good It's still a bit of work on this bottom

I think I've finally finished the wheels

I think it's all for the moment.
The model is ready to be covered with clear varnish and then I will apply decals

Image
Image

black color applied multilayer: airbrush - various shades, sponge - also different shades, pigments and again airbrush

Image
Image

The effect in the real world is satisfactory, unfortunately the pictures do not show up well.

Image

exhaust pipes a little valorised:

Image

After the decals are applied, there is still a lot of work to do when painting. This time will work oil paints and pastels, what will be the effect? Time will tell
