    Hi There,

    Today i finish fuselage and also add tail and tail's wing together. fit is good but due to small scale make it hard a little to glue part together. dont forget to add internal spar for tail's wing...it help u a lot in assemble process.

    Hi There,

    Today not have time much to assemble model, prepare myself to next project. if someone have cool subject for me to design feel free to PM me ;)

    Now back to Ki-27 after put cowling into fuselage, i work on wing. make wingspar to make wing strength and prepare to put wing into fuselage.

    It shouldn't be to difficult to add those covers :D
    Then you could sell three color schemes and I would certainly buy this one 8)

    Hi There,

    Nothing progress much on weekend, just finish landing gear and wheel. i think landing gear and wheel is difficult parts for every model i assemble hehe but no problem in this Ki-27. now only canopy and propeller left.

    Hi There,

    that doesn't look so bad really... my first canopies where a looot worse!
    it took me a while to find out what works and what not, and even so, sometimes it still goes wrong...on the other hand a clear canopie makes a great model even better i think.

    in fact i started building the same model a few days ago at my favourit 1/72 scale, ;) and today i made the canopie... here are some pictures of how i did it. (quick cheap, and effective)

    for heating the plastic (from a chewing gum package) i used a lighter(that i found)...it may seem risky as the pieces are card, but you have to keep it at such a distance that only the plastic is heated. by the time the flame would be close enough to light the card, your plastic is ruined anyway. there is a good threat going on in the tools and tips section, so i'll just post my little lo-fi version here:)
