    The original one is on my todo list and will come as soon as some of my other projects have been finished. :)

    Hello Ladies and Gentlemen,

    Here is an update to this project. I am sorry that it has taken so long, but I am also working on the figurines as well.
    These photos show the start of the wing roots, engine section, and where the main body will be attached.

    Hello Ladies and Gentlemen,

    It is time for another update on this project. I am sorry that has been so long since my last update, but I was working on the figurines for awhile (which are now on hold, while I catch up on this project, as well as a few others).
    On with the photos.

    Here are the "wings". The longer edge pieces are a bit fiddly. So you will have to be careful as you are assembling them.
    IMAG4079.jpg IMAG4080.jpg

    The first wing is attached to the wing mount. There are no internal formers, so mounting the wings are a bit tricky.
    IMAG4082.jpg IMAG4083.jpg

    Second wing finished.
    IMAG4084.jpg IMAG4085.jpg

    Second mounted. Unfortunately, the wings "gulled" (as you can plainly see :banghead:). So I weighted them down to flatten them out.
    IMAG4086.jpg IMAG4087.jpg IMAG4088.jpg

    The wing mount assembly is attached to the rest of the model.

    Here are more photos!

    These are pretty self explanatory.

    Great progress! I'll think about a way to avoid the gulling.;)

    That's how far I've gone. In my case, the inner parts of the wings curved inside, touching each other. In order to prevent that, as well as the wings from sagging down, I placed a folded paper stripe from one wingtip to the other. I don't know if you've had that problem (it seems you haven't), but I give you my humble suggestion.
    Excellent job, keep up the good work!

    Time for another update. This time I have attached the tanks (or tubes) on the body and wings.

    Here are the tubes for the body.
    IMAG4156.jpg

    The tubes slide into the lower part of the upper intakes and then attach to the body.
    IMAG4158.jpg IMAG4159.jpg


    Here are the tubes (tanks) for the wings.
    IMAG4163.jpg IMAG4164.jpg

    In making these, I realized that the inner tubes had to be put on this way, otherwise, you can not get them into place properly.
    IMAG4166.jpg IMAG4167.jpg IMAG4168.jpg IMAG4169.jpg

    Inner tubes attached (yes, I know I messed one up slightly. I did not catch it in time to fix it).

    Here at re the outer tubes.
    IMAG4171.jpg IMAG4172.jpg

    Fortunately, these do slide on nicely. There are a few gaps that I have reported to Revell-Fan. He will be taking care of those before the kit is released.
    IMAG4173.jpg IMAG4174.jpg

    Now on to the wing tip tubes and the exhausts.

    Don't worry about the tubes; I have a solution in mind which will avoid all the issues. ;)
