    lasery są ok.;-))) I chyba każdy modelarz to potwierdzi. Nie inaczej jest z tym modelem. Segmenty powstały z prędkością nadświetlną;-))) Poniżej prezentuję gotowy kadłub. Oczywiście wręgi należało lekko przeszlifować, ale nie miałem większych problemów z pasowaniem części. W najbliższych dniach będzie przerwa w budowie, gdyż tak gdzie go sklejam nie będzie mnie do końca tygodnia. Model mam co rawda ze soba w domku ale mam inne obowiązki;-))) Dzisiejszy efekt widać na zdjęciach poniżej...

    Laser cut frames are ok and I think every modeler will agree with that. There is no difference with this model as well. Segments were completed at warp speed. Below is the completed fuselage. of course I had to sand the formers a bit, but there were no major problems with the fit. In the near future I will have to take a break from the build since I will be away for the rest of the week.
    I have the model with me but there are other duties. Today's progress on the photos. Good Night.

    I took liberty and translated his post.

    Wow, what a virtually seamless fuselage, Lukacz!:)
    I don't think I could ever get it to fit like that...:cry:

    Beautiful! Thank you for sharing photos of your amazing work.

    Cheers!

    Very good precision work! If I live thru another 738 years I'll never be able to build like that! Bravo!

    I know, I know where have I been? Hiding, a little, working a lot and stalled! Just too difficult to find quality model’n time and sort the problems.

    In addition my faithful iBook died, Long live the MacBook!

    But I have some leave, the gardening is done and its time to stick some card!

    I promise will return to the Mosquito in a day or two and do it justice in my own humble way. But need to gear up to it.

    Do share your thoughts... I have wondered if I dare "vac-form " or heat form the office roof or try something a little more direct and knife based?

    I have been collecting different gauges of transparent material to compare properties. I have always steered clear of hot forming / vac forming, in Homer J's words (or close) "If a thing is difficult or hard give up".

    I agree that in the case of the FB Mossie the canopy is a variant on the transparent box. Carefull cutting and precise (sssh!) measurement would be a better bet.

    BTW my grandfather used blown pespex bubble canopies as closhes in his vegetable garden. I don't know which type of aircraft they came from, late model spitfires? early jets? But as kids my brother and I had great fun lying under them playing fighter pilots and astronauts!

    Now that's recycling or even swords in to plough shares.
