    Something I forgot. There is a small error in the description file as can be seen in the attached screenshot.

    Good to point these things out, is one an end piece, or are they both the same part, just mislabeled?

    Parts no 3 and parts no 5 are different parts. Parts 3 are the end enforcements and are bigger.

    Thank you for pointing this out, Starbuck.

    To sum it up - parts are mislabeled in the instruction drawing. They are corectly designed and labeled in the template itself.

    Next parts put together.
    Tip:Before gluing, check that these parts fit to the wings. I first glued inside and then they did not fill the white parts on the wings.
    Next parts cut out. I do not habe an exact idea how and where to place them. I hope my plastic model will show me the way.

    Very good work! I hope you find the place of those pieces, the thread of Bigpert can serve as a guide.

    -------
    @ part 1 in bigpetr┬┤s picture it is named w19 in the instruction, but I think it should be named w26.

    Additonal question regarding bigpetrs part 6.
    Why double? Optional which to use as they have different colours?
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    I tried all possible combinations and decided to take the brighter parts, as they fit better to the rest of the wing.
    I glued them on an additional layer of paper to make them pop-up.
    Pictures to follow.

    Now I have all parts pre-assebled. Before glueing together I will paint the edges.
    I think that I will try to assemble with moving wings. The stick and the movers are prepared.

    Ok first two wings done. I am not sure how the moving wings have to be installed. I think it might be seen better when all wings are ready.

    Now I will do the other wings, witch will take some time F35D40BB-4C08-4204-A793-83B3E2924321.jpeg

    some posts before:

    The answer is: parts are needed on both sides of the wing. :hammerhead:I forgot to place them on the inner side - you can also see on the picture.
    Meantime corrected;-)

    All 4 wings finalized.

    Next problem/topic is to place them in a moveable position.

    And then the lasers. Hmm....checking the parts I think they are going to be difficult. Will see. 3045FAD1-61C2-44A6-89DD-438DFA5F727A.jpeg

    Based on the small parts I decided to make a test to be sure to avoid mistakes. Most parts are on thin paper, only few are made of thicker paper, which was also one of the reasons for a testbuild. Never worked with thin paper before. (Beside adding an additional layer to a part.)
    Here first picture.
