    After some wonderful days in the south of France and round 2600 km in the saddle of this thing, I'm back and full of energy to start the endspurt for Willy.

    The next step was the windshield, which I want to build with real glass pieces, 0,2 mm thickness using in the microscopy. The first try was a punch into the water, the glass was broken.

    [​IMG]

    The second try was crowned with success.

    Certainly it is able to put the windshield down, as by the original.

    It's a real beauty, no words needed!
    IMHO, any serious museum could be proud to have that model on display.
    Just by reaing this thread I learned a lot.
    Just one this is a bit unclear - how did you do the windshield - could you elaborate a bit please?

    Josef,

    Absolutely sensational! Glad you had a great holdiday in the South of France. Helped you warm up for the great finish. Thanks for your hard work and especially for sharing it with all of us.

    Hello Alexander!

    The glass of the windshield was made of real glasses, which is in use for microscopy as cover-glass for compounds. They are very thin (0,2 mm) and very clear. The biggest problem was to cut them. The using of a glass-cutter was not possible, because the pressure would break them. So I had to pen it between two hard sheets (I used acrylic glass) and break down the edges to become the right dimensions. The borders were burnished very carefully with a minidrill and diamond milling cutter. It was not necessary to become a perfect edge, because the frame of cardboard was covering it.

    Servus

    Hi Josef,

    Sadly the 109 you mention, crashed at it's home field and is heavily damaged. Luckily the pilot escaped unharmed (other than his pride), but it will take a lot of work to get the Rote Sieben back in the air again.

    See some pictures at the website of the museum I belong to. Afraid that the text is in German only, not that that will bother you...

    To get back on subject, Nice model, I'm absolutely in awe of anyone that can get results like that.
