My rythm of work will diminue until end of january, due to professional examen in preparation... I will just do  a sitting per week...

...But we still are in progress!
And I come back with that problem of "louves" part under the engine: on www.theaerodrome.com, a POlish modeller used a technic that I will, too, give a try:

First, you take the spare part

...that will serve as support for the PE element.

A little bit of sanding, then... Holes... Many holes (again)...


Remone the louves...


The PE part will be glued on that support


...but still a lot of work to do, to adjust the PE


Anyway, if I'm not satisfied, I still have the original modified part!

Very complicated, in general, etched parts should make work easy, not harder.

Not the case of that element, mate... A really splendid one, but I must say I HATE it! ;-)

You are doing a great work...
I like PE parts but sometimes they really make the work living hell...

OK. I've tried. But nerviously, it was too much for me...

Feel better now...  :-green
I will use the kit's part, without any regret: I've verified keeping the PE and the kit's part at eyes level, you see exactly the same.

Again working with photoetch:

there are six elements...

Primer on the propeller...


...and on another part I've préviously forgotten...


And finally, the dope linen for the interior of the fuselage. I've well examined the subject and compared Mister Kit, Vallejo, Gunze and Tamiya colors and finally I've opted for Tamiya XF-55 Deck Tan. I wish a dope linen that haves some use; don't forget that the Belgian Spads came from the French surplus - Not really aircfrats from the fabric!


More work next week...  :))
