We want to see it finished!

At least I do!

We stole the eagle from the Air Force, the anchor from the Navy, and the rope from the Army.
On the seventh day while God rested, we overran his perimeter, stole the globe, and we've been running the whole show ever since.

Hi, Don,

I'm not a fast builder as you are, so my projects take some time to be implemented .

Here are a few pics of the current status of my RC-135S model :

Detailed the upper wings sections that make the roof of main landing gears bays .



Assembled the upper wings panels, it was a long work in order to assure proper alignement .





Here are the main landing gears bays







Here is the wheels set painted and weathered using MIG weathering paints .



There are a lot of small details panels on the fuselage underside that need rescribing and it's a long and not so easy process - lots of Dymo tape !!!!!!

I'm also preparing a scribing mask from very thin brass sheet to rescribe the set of auxiliary air intakes around the fan section of the engine nacelles, also the nacelles pylons need some rescribing and here also I need to implement specific scribing masks because there is no place to use standard masks like Tritool or Edward .

That's all for now !!!!!!!!

Bye, my friend !!!

Alberto, that is some great detail, and craftmanship!

The level you build at requires much more time than my tossing a kit together! Please take your time! All the time you need!
Again, beautiful work!

We stole the eagle from the Air Force, the anchor from the Navy, and the rope from the Army.

- i was waiting to see how you tackled the wing dihedral problem and the wing- fuselage integration.

It was my experience that if you build up the wing assembly separately, you run into a real fit problem along the front edge of the center piece "saddle" where it butts up against the lower forward fuselage. All the panel lines fail to line up, etc.

Does the wing have enough dihedral when viewed head on? Or, does it need some wedges in the lower skin to increase it?

Cheers,

david
