    Excellent work, Nobi! :D
    I'm watching this build with much interest...particularly when you get to the wings. :wink:

    I'm very glad your eye is on the mend but, as Rob cautioned, don't overdo it, take your time and give your eye plenty of rest, my friend.

    Cheers!

    Hi There,

    Thank you very much Jim. i will not overdo to kill my eye :) that why this work is real slow

    now continue on air intake, make more concentrate on this part, i think this is hard part of this kit.

    prepare outside of airintake

    and glue together
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    glue inside of air intake into (a little dirty work of glue hehe)
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    and glue that airintake into fusleage
    [​IMG]

    do agian with another side
    [​IMG]

    next will be a dorsal pod on top of fuselage soon...

    NOBI...you mentioned to me before that you thought the air intakes were the hardest part of your U-2 to make. You sure did make it look easy. 8v)

    Looking forward to seeing the finished model.

    PS...me thinks its time I amend my signature block. I just a few moments ago, spilled coffee on the last reprint of the PBY model (ran out of ink for now) and am going to give it up for now. The B-52 redraw however, is still going along...slowly.

    Nobi,

    Its coming together isnt it. Looking more and more like the U2 each posting. Fantastic work, and by the way, for someone who is taking it "easy", you sure are getting along on this model at a good pace.
    Keep up the great work.

    Nobi,

    Nice ducting work. Can't wait to get my copy when you're finished.

    Best regards, Gil

    I love your spy plane, Nobi, I really do!

    You made that duct work look easy!
    She's coming along quite well...nice and easy, mate.
    Just curious, what weight paper are you using on this...I tend to use 67# card stock for most everything, except for rolling small tubes, where I use normal paper weight (26-28#). Just wondering since the curves on your fuselage and ducts came out so nicely.

    Keep at it! :D

    Cheers!

    Thank you very much, i use 180 gram cardstock (not know in lbs) and coat with lacquer before assemble. when assemble i try to wait until glue dry before continue work.

    Thanks, Nobi! :D

    I figure your paper weight of 180 gram is about 67# cardstock, unless I am totally misreading the conversion table.

    Looking forward to more when you can, my friend!

    Cheers!

    Continue on Spyplane's project...with dorsal pod and wing.

    Dorsal pod is very easy just glue it together.

    glue to fuselage

    and continue on wing's frame
    [​IMG]

    skin wing's frame

    test fit with fuselage

    then make a wing's pod

    Looking real good, Nobi! :D

    And that's it for the wing? Not sure why, but I thought you would have to use some additional support at the fuselage to help support the long wings, but looks to me like that one strut is good enough...what is the thickness of that strut, if you could tell me. :?

    Nobi, I have to say, that is one beautiful model design, I look forward to seeing how you set up the wheels, not to mention the release date! :D
    Be sure to watch your eye, it probably still needs to be favored so don't strain it, my friend.

    Cheers!

    Hi Jim,

    Thank you very much, i agree with you that only 1 strut is not enough for that long wing but in this U-2R that strut can support that wing and nearly wing tip have a wheel to support at that postition too :) i use 1 mm cardboard to make that strut and glue with UHU power to make strength

    in next design i will thinking more about strut and support of internal frame :) i know that i dont like to make a complex frame or strut in my model i build so i try to make it simple when i design :D

    Hi all

    Got this off Nobi on Friday.

    Iam a big fan of kits like this that are quick and easy to build.
    The added attraction is they look very good when finished, so I just had to have a go at it.
    Plus the local kids have been on my back for a while to build some more :roll:

    If you have a good look at the diagrams for this model before you start the build it will go together much faster and without any problems.
    As you can see in the photo's I have most of the main section of the plane done plus the wings and tail section.
    To get to this stage took four hours, ten mins here ahd there :roll:

    So far in the build the only problem has been getting the time to put my bum down to build it :lol:
    As Nobi has said about his designs they are easy to build and look good, well he has done it again 8)

    Since Nobi has done a very good build on this bird I won't go through it again. But I will post a few photo's of my finished U2 before it goes to the mob outside!!

    Tomorrow the rest of Nobi's and the offerings I have from DeWayne will come out for building again, it just might keep the local kids of my back for ten seconds :lol:

    For me this is a must have model, well done Nobi and I look forward to the next design

    More when its finished, with any luck tomorrow

    Regards

    Rob

    Hi all

    Finished the build on Nobi's spy bird a while ago but could not get onto the site to post the photo's :roll:

    I did not have any problems with this build, it all fitted great and I think looks cool to when finished :D
    This has gone on to the list of build again models

    If you don't have this yet you don't know what your missing, a fine model to hang high up in the kids bedroom.
    This bird was snatched within seconds of the photo's being taken and has had a lot of five year old flight tests. (yes its still intact) :lol:

    A fine desgn Nobi well done
