    Thank you, Revell. It's a little hard to work in this model each day, but it's allways in my mind! Thank you for your encouragement!

    Fantastic job so far! Looks like it will be a nice model. I've been wanting to build a scooter model.

    "Enterpriser" you're pictures are much larger than life, and the misfits you have show are so small, this Farro Basso will be a text book quality build when finished. :)

    Thank you so much, Zathros! Comments like yours are so very nice . . . :yesyes:

    For now, I'm facing some dificulties with the octopus' legs, but I'll win him! :fight: But, as I'm going to a work out this weekend, next week I'll show what I'm doing to resolve this "obstacle". I'm confident that it will be "past" soon.

    See you, all.

    Well, after the last step, I noted that the idea was correct, but with some miscalculation . . .

    But, as it is a Uhu model . . . it looks like a "heals itself" while the assembly is in progress!!!!!!

    To me, it's a great relief that makes me see to the next days with a strong faith!!!!

    But, inside the things aren't very well, maybe for on my part miscalculation with the "octopus". It makes me do some "ajusts" to gain a tab along the body to glue the next partas . . . sorry, guys . . .

    My dears,

    After a little "long" time, I can post some photos of my tiny progress. As you can see, I have some problems with internal side of the model, and I'm afraid with the consequences ahead . . . Specially at the left out side I'll face some difficulties: I saw that I glued one tentacle of internal octopus at wrong place . . .

    My problem started here, with a unacceptable mistake with internal octopus legs. They need to be joined when glued. :(:headbange:

    Hi @Enterpriser10, I'm also facing some difficulties at this point, just attached the internal octopus legs in, and shape seems a bit off. I may have problem gluing the next piece on the side because it doesn't seem to fit perfectly :/ I'll see what happens :hammerhead:

    When making parts like this, you must do opposing parts at the same time, or they will pull in the directly you did first. I have learned this from planking ship models., and you must keep the edges right next to each other Enterpriser, I think, in the end, you will be very satisfied, and many of the imperfections you have you will be able to form to where you want them, once the glue has dried. ;)

    I, Sadie. Indeed, this is a nevraugic moment. But I'd like the Zathros' s tips that I'll follow with next parts.

    And, if you are assembling the same model, please, post it as suggested by Zathros!
