You are a talented man and brave to take on such a delicate finish. You seem to be doing quite well.

Boomerang's Projects / Re: 1/48 Brandenburg W-29 Commenced 26th April 2017

  Some progress. Its a bit of "1 step forward and two steps  back".

  I got some German Naval Lozenge decals and tried them out on the tail plane first.
  Harrumph ! Brittle, Brittle and virtually came apart in my hands.
  So I hit the remainder of that sheet and the other of the two with some decal bonder after scanning it.

  The wing and aileron a done using the remainder of that sheet. It was still a bit brittle and even with micro sol/set it still parted company with the carrier film in places.
   The aileron pattern should match up ( nearly does). A quick touch up with appropriate colours on the leading edge rectified it a little bit.
   The tail plane is done using the scanned copy. Unfortunately the colours don't match and the lozenge is slightly over size. Still its home made and went on a dream.
   There is a piece of lozenge camouflage between the gunners cockpit and the tail plane. I plan to use the homemade one for this.

   I"ll wait a little while and summon the necessary good karma before using the other bought sheet to do the other wing.

   The two bits of white plastic are from a take away coffee cup top. They will represent the side engine covers . The louvers have been done by cutting to length and then using a
   bamboo skewer point on a bed of tissue pushing them out. The panels  are inclined inwards at the top. Rubbed them with the skewer and they just about match whats required .
   The engine is built up using wire wrapped dowel for cylinders , bit balsa for the block and communication wire with insulation left on for piping. A radiator is in progress as well.

   I've chosen "2670"as the one I'll do. It had a different engine to most of the others and was taken by the British for testing. hence the roundels above and below the wings.
   later pics have it sea green overall with roundels.

It is easier to get the wing even on both sides. I will be staring a Bearcat after my Spitfires and Mustangs are done.

Work for today. As it turns out due to my miscalculation I will be putting an insert in the bottom under the wing.

Notched the horizontal tail plane and added a plug to fill in.

Marcos Borges' Project Board / Third Party Photo Hosting
« Last post by lastvautour on August 18, 2017, 04:48:54 PM »
PhotoBucket is no longer permitting 3rd party hosting.

We are painfully aware, Photobucket (PB) has stopped allowing their members to link their accumulated years of photos into forums and the like, which they call 3rd party linking.  You can give them a non-refundable $399 a year to allow links, but I doubt that you will be rushing to take them up on that offer.
I suggest that you upload your pictures to some other site or better still, the gallery. Until you re-link them no one can see the photos you posted.
