Today I've fixed some parts. I've also checked how the tail was fitting: not so good (probably due to excess of sanding). So I've added a little part of Evergreen and put some cyano on the fixed part of the tail. Tomorrow I will sand that drop of cyano when dry; then some putty will be needed on the fuselage, around the wheel legs and just in front of the tail...

Little work once again, but good one with the tail.
First, I've reinforced the mobile part of the rudder with a metal part, to give more strenght when I will glue the mobile part of the tail to the fixed one.
Then, the little photoetch part PP5 was to be placed on the tail... But even if tiny, the part would have created a space between the mobile and fixed parts... So, with a razor blade I made an emplacement on the mobile part: that's perfect now, and strenghtened!
I have also placed a little bit of Evergreen under the fuselage. Probably due to an excess of sanding, there was a space between the radiator and the fuselage.
(NB: radiator just positioned for the photo; not glued yet...)

Last sitting for 2018: Vallejo and Tamiya White putties... The reservoir is positioned and asked for putty too... And finally the tail is ready!

Good sitting today - Well, good for nerves control!  :-green
I've placed some little parts. The little air intakes were opened by myself. The metal bar behind the radiator needs for some putty. I've also made a hole in the gun of the machinegun and I prepaired all the little photoetch parts... Not easy to work on those tiny parts because so tiny... But all came finely.
I've not glued the photoetched parts because I was tired and hands were shaking...
To be said that there is a photoetch part for the blades of the little propeller. But too difficult to place (you have to remove the plastic blades then to sand heavily the part); I preferred to sand the plastic blades to make them finer...

I first time met this generator long time ago, when I have to illustrate on interwar combat airplane, it have it too.
