    OK, now go the horizontal stabilizers. Look how many parts are needed to build them - however, they look just like the real ones. ;-) What's more, numerous and large formers make the components very stable and almost impossible to twist.

    The endings have I made using the rubber gum technique:

    The trim tab (originally not to be cut out):

    And this is an almost-finished stabilizer (the parts which link the rudder to the stabilizer will be added later):

    I just found this link and, like the rest of us, I'm stunned. I threw away the Spaceship One I'm making and started another as a result of your work. It should be noted that English could be a second language for you ( I hope I am not being rude) and it is stunning, too. I know I don't speak Polish! Thanks for sharing this with the world.

    Hello again. :) The build slowly goes on - here come the engines:

    [​IMG]

    Firstly, the exhaust pipes. Unlike armour or ship modellers, aircraft builders usually haven't got much to do with "recurrent" parts (maybe that's why I mostly build aircrafts :) ). Unfortunately, there are exceptions. ;)

    [​IMG]

    The edges fit to one another better when they have been sanded just like that:

    [​IMG]

    That's how the endings were shaped (the green thing is a 1 mm wire):

    [​IMG]

    The formers of the engine (firstly I put the basis for the pipes, then I've added the pipes, and finally the skinplate):

    [​IMG]

    After covering with the skinplate (the instruments in the black circle have been cut out, glued to circle made of transparent foil and glued back to the skinplate):

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    With the front part:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    A little painter's mistake:

    [​IMG]

    I cut out a part of the blue-gray side... The lacking other side's part will be added later.

    Damn... Now I've realised that the pipes will not be HARDLY visible (as I had thought), but ALMOST invisible under this cowling:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Well, these covers must have been removable, so I'll leave one engine without them. :)

    Now the engines are ready (not all the edges in the engine in the rear - or in the left on the second picture - have been already painted):

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    These three photos should help figure out how these parts should be put together (the assembly instruction is a little confusing here):

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I had to cut out holes in the former below to make place for the air intakes:

    I've covered one of the wings.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Bigger not supported surfaces have been stiffened with additional layers of card.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    This prevented the skin from falling down. The surface is now very smooth (photos against the light):

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    This is the biggest wing I've ever built. The fitting and general design idea of the formers are quite ingenious! I didn't have to think about keepeing the ribs in line, because the skeleton just doesn't bend. Building wings has never been so much fun. :) Hats off to Marcin Grygiel again. :)

    It will be more than 60 cm. :)

    One more thing - a hint for forming the wings' leading edges. To fold a part it is good to do this:

    [​IMG]

    ...a few times, using a tool of a smaller diameter each time. However, sometimes it doesn't help, and then it is good to soak the part at the non-printed side with a little liquid (a VERY small amount!). Water isn't good for this in my opinion, because it's too thin, but... saliva is just perfect. :D It's a lot easier to make a leading edge of a very small diameter using this method, when compared to "dry" modelling.
