Thank you Burkhard- you are perfectly right for sure
But..... fixing that mischief- I have to say that- was quite hard work. Today I tried to get it finished...at last. While cleaning up the inside of the canopy with tweezers- I had to remove reluctant masking material- the whole construction exploded suddenly under the force with which I operated the tweezers.... The rear panel, windscreen, canopy, even the seat- all had broken loose...
It was hard work to bring all in
their places again.....
Another matter making troubles had been mounting the glassing on the turret: The muzzles showed to be too wide to fit through the openings of the canopy struts..... I had to cut the muzzles off, glue the turrets glassing in place, followed by the re-mounting the gun muzzles.
All in all, I am relieved to finish that long-time project! No award winner of course- but finished a last!
These are the last pictures of the building process- the only thing left is putting the prop on the shaft
The masking tapes are securing a tight fit of the sliding canopy part during gluing.
Tomorrow I should be able to get the Blackburn Ric photographed.
