    Ok I don't want Larry Marshall get all the fun and credits. So I'm an inexpert builder starting a build thread. :wink:

    This is a simple model but as Larry did I think to share our newbies doubts and mistakes is good.

    Of course sugestions, improvements, coments and critics are welcome. Any help with my English is welcome too because I'm learning.

    I like a lot the german planes of second world war and the unfinished luftwafe projects. So when I see Nobi's Stubo I've to buy it. By the way NOBI don't feel bad I bought the Kampfflieger stubo, too. Maybe some day I wrote a comparation between the kits.

    I've choose to build the 1/48 scale version, here is the kit, just 2 pages:

    Well, My most complex build until now was NOBI's Yak 17. When I builded it I've some trouble with the strips build method. I've started the stubo in the same way but again I've trouble.

    I read a lot about the strip method and butt join method. Maybe someone can write a tutorial with pictures about that because I really strugle with the strips method. So I choose change this time to a butt join method.

    This is why you see I printed 2 pages of formers and strips. NOBI: This is for you please keep the formers and strips in a separated page. if I have to do this with the ME 262 Schalwe I've to print the whole model twice.

    Ok. Following with the build, here I building the segments:

    You have to duplicate the formers. Every segment get now 2 formers.

    Looking good so far! Its nice to see other beginners like myself doing this. :D What exactly is the problem you are having with the strips?

    I also think the strips are printed throughout the model so its easier to tell which pieces are supposed to use them and which ones dont need them.

    just to make sure.... you are putting the joining strips on BEFORE rolling the parts to the right shape. Right? I know it seems basic to many people but i did it wrong when I first did them.....

    wellll ok then. I dont want to hijack the thread but he brought it up ;)

    I attach the joining strips first so that when i shape the tube (in this case the fuselage as thats typically the pieces that have them) so that when I shape the piece it also shapes the join strip at the same time. It doesnt make sense to me to shape the piece then shape the join strip. But then again maybe i am using too heavy of paper for the join strips....

    When you say bulkheads do yo mean formers? To me a bulkhead is a wall on a ship....

    Are we having a vote on when to glue strips? I'm with Carl.
    I think I learned this back in the 60's with Wilhelmshaven
    models. If the paper had no thickness either way would
    work the same, so I suppose it depends on the paper/card
    used.
