So... after 3 days out of house, I have continued works yesterday evening...
As mentioned in Degelow's build, one of last obstacles is strut assembly - these are out of scale, so here are pictures of originals and my modifications...

...and my final word on struts, this morning during the (second) morning coffee :)
Now to some more cabling, rudder attachment , sword decals, landing gear, and that would be about it :-jump

thanks for nice comments :-flo

Without morning coffee I couldn't even see the model box, let alone the struts... :-roll
Usually I drink coffee throughout the day, and all the time I'm modelling - almost like a juice :-wch
Tonight I've finished work around two, took a last sip of coffee and went straight to bed - no problem for me :)

Cabling for horisontal stabiliser was done as on Degelow's plane - fine wire was used as a needle to thread elastomere through drilled plastic, and the rest was piece of cake...
Afterwards I've attached and wired the rudder, attached tailplane struts and applied winged sword decals. These are as fragile as it might be, so the crack could be seen :-/ This was corrected after taking a pic.

That schedule sounds familiar! I worked a midnight shift for eight years so coffee hasn't much effect on me either.....

Great work and thanks for the updates!

This time I was clever enough to mount "shock-absorbers" prior to attach landing gear to the fuselage :))
