1/50 Fauvel AV 36 commenced 14 OCT 2017 Completed 14 NOV 2017
« on: October 16, 2017, 03:45:39 PM »
 Thought I'd try for a "speed" build.
 Built from the bits box.
 1.5 mm ply fins . The rest is balsa.
  Doped thread on fins and fuselage .
  Will be painted as the one in the Shuttleworth Collection.
  Red and cream
  Pretty much done. Have made a decal (on the fins).
  Picture(s) to follow.

Are those shuttle fabric rib details on the vertical fins? Looks great.

 That's them. They appear to be prominent in pictures. I'm not doing the wing ribs.

 Clipped together. Cream applied. Red will have to wait till I get back. Going away for a couple of days.

 After a lot of masking applied red and achieved "crackling". Minor setback which will be fixed.
