Back from the grave! :mrgreen: Before I start my report, I'd like to say that Tino was correct about the wheels! They're horrible! They don't fit! The previous troubles I had with this kit were peanuts compared to the problems I encountered when assembling the wheels and the landing gear struts. This images shows half of a the wheel. At the background you'll see how the wheels are designed. Check out the joining tab part labeled "b". Now check the picture. Notice that the glue tabs don't come out of the edges of the wheel. That's because part "b" is grossly undersized! Here's a picture of a completed wheel. (This is the front landing gear wheel assembly.) Here's a picture of the rear landing gear assembly in process. Notice that even if part "b" is under sized, there is still a small gap in the black strip that I had to fill in with glue then color with a sharpie. Those wheels were a nightmare to make! It took roughly two evenings to assemble just 1 wheel. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to take pictures of the landing gear struts' build process. The front landing gear strut pretty okay. The rear struts on the other hand were not. The inner wire that the template produced was too short! I had to 'guesstimake' a new pair. Attaching the landing gears to the plane was not smooth riding either. Do you remember the oversized former in the front fuselage? Well the hole where the landing gear is to be placed is too close to the front wall of the landing gear bay. This left very little room to angle the front landing gear forward. I had to gently bend the landing gear strut forward just to get the effect. Here's a picture of the progress so far. Notice that the front landing gear does not angle forward. This makes the plane look like it's going to topple over. :cry: Front shot. Now all I need to do is to attach the rest of the landing gear covers and the canopy. Note that I still don't know how I'll deal with the gap in the canopy headboard. I do hope the canopy cover will hide that gap. I don't know if I can finish within this week. I'll going on a two week business trip to Raleigh NC this Saturday. I'll have to find a safe place to store my Pfeil for the time being.
