    I have now decided to start to build a plane.
    I choose the Me109 G2 from Orlik since it's an fairly easy aircraft to start with and the constructor is well known for his good fit.I hope you're not fed up with the Me's.....

    I started with the cockpit as I have seen most builders do :)

    Here I have put together the main cockpit construction

    And started with the interior.....as you can see I added some dirt at the rear end :)

    In your dreams Chris!!
    I know I sometimes might overdoe some detailing, but even I have some limits :)

    I take this build as a learning build,so I'm not expecting the final result to be very good.But so far I think most of it has gone ok. I have done some errors,but nothing much to speak of.I'm just to hasty.....

    Paint is something I have problems with because of my colorblindness.....
    Here is my solution :)
    [​IMG]
    This is 2 liters of paint......I need a teaspoon :)

    So over to the plane!
    Dryfitting the part after shaping, and I made some connection strips on the inside of each section to be sure it stayed together.

    I also made some new machineguns with a barrel this time :)
