    My paper therapy is going well! The frame for the wheel pants were a little tricky and almost impossible to keep straight;

    Finished the underside of the plane;
    View attachment 10481
    I was amazed that I could roll the pieces thin enough for the pitot tube and the bomb harness!8)
    View attachment 10482
    Also attached the props (also did a mini-Trotskiy Stuka while the glue dried);
    View attachment 10483
    So all that's left now is the canopy assembly....:roll:
    Here's hoping I don't mess it up! I'll be trying a new material; urethane gloss, painted as a sheet and then (hopefully) bonded to the canopy sections with more of the same material. Dangerous, but it could work?!

    PS. Went to the Doc today and he freed my from the painful physical therapy and thinks I'll be good in another month or two!:grin:

    Finished!

    My technique for the glazing worked, but I painted too many layers of the urethane and it became too thick. But the theory worked!

    View attachment 10502

    I wound up not using probably a dozen parts, mostly formers in the tail wing and a couple of cockpit details
    View attachment 10503
    All in all, a good excercise and good physical therapy. I may even be able to move on to heavier paper now! (and something larger!)
    Here she is front and center in this shot of the "Paper Stuka Shelf!":grin:

    Nice! I don't have the patience (or the fingers!)
    Phil, I always figured the smaller the model, the thinner the paper. Guess not. Maybe I should try that... (I have plenty of tightly rolled balls, mostly in 1/96 scale.) ;)

    Yes, I suppose I am a little obsessive about the JU-87! :cry: I still have at least a half dozen more kits to do! :twisted:
    My problem is that most of the paper kits have such inaccurate color schemes. I'm looking forward to the recent GPM kits as they are really nicely done. I wish I had the ability to scan the GPM 1/24 JU-87B and scale it down to 1/33 to sit beside the GPM 1/33 JU-87D. It would be nice to have the two best looking kits in the same scale.:-?
    Barry, email me.
