Ah, time for a little update to show I´m actually doing something 😛

 

The fuselage is glued..

And the top with the wing fold mechanism...rather cleverly done I must say, not the mechanincs of it but the break up of parts.
Having everything fit into a separate piece really makes construction simpler...good thinking 😄

Before I glued the top on I needed to put in a distance made from a toothpick to make ends meet so to speak.

And the top glued in place, the fit is about as good as I can make it, any discrepancies are my fault and they will be dealt with!

Yep, I will have to putty it up... it´s my curse! I use way more putty than the average bear so I usually say (with a tone of self irony)I´m a
crappy builder but a good painter 😛
To save my putty account I mask the areas to putty...

Yeah yeah, I know there are other ways to putty that pprobably are smarter but this is how I do it and I darn well like it! OK? 😛

 

Cheers!

You putty any damn way you want and don't let anyone tell you otherwise. Try a daily affirmation. Look at yourself in the mirror and say to yourself, "I'm good, I'm handsome, and gosh darn it, I putty my models just fine!"  :whistle:

 

But, seriously, looking good.

Hi I'm AFM and I am a habitual putty/tape user.

 

I use the same putty technique as well; feels good I'm not the only one.

I think we should start a club, Anonymous Puttying........for us who heavily rely on putty and can't be bothered with getting parts to fit!  😄

Yes! We can meet and talk about our puttying experiences. We would strengthen the bonds (pun intended) between us as we affirm each others methods and results. :beer4:We could smooth over and fill in the personality cracks that society has created by scorning the liberal use of putty (and more puns). :naughty:

"Hi, my name is Mark and I use a lot of putty." :thumbsup:

Enough of this silliness. Back to work, all of you. We'll have no more emotion outbursts. This is no way to run an army. Chip, chip, cherrio! Where's my kippers?! :salute:

 

Honestly, Aigore, you better post some build pics soon. I'm getting out of hand :whistle:
