I know that that is a possibility, but as long as it's only letters in 2 colors, I can manage it. The Judy part will be tedious however, and there are two fragile antennas nearby.

Good luck. Eager to see how this dio turns out.

OK, Gary, I just uploaded some new shots of the plastering session I did today. I also made a Wall with the Green Stuff Dutch Bricks 15mm seal. Works very good on clay. The trees I still kept apart from the base to be able to paint the road.

The lettering on Judy is done. It was indeed tedious to cut but I think it turned out well. I also received the Schwimmwagen extras today and immediately started the build with some Aber interior parts.

Some dry-fitting of the Blackdog parts and a lot of tiny Aber PE particles later...

Petr thank you, sorry I have no photo for this situation, but I'll try to describe it. I'm using tin balls something like that http://www.pelikan-rcmodely.cz/modelarske-zavazi-50-g-p39084 and to fix it I'm using also Flexible nose weight - https://www.uschivdr.com/products-in-detail/three-green-flexible-nose-weight/. I filled the radar cover (it is single part) in front completelly with the bals and seal it with the Uschis mass. I glue it as the last part, so I've tried it for sevral times and result was it must be completelly filled.

The same approach can be seen in my album Wine, Women & Song - WIP | Album by Dy dzeJ (1:72) on pictures #14 and #15.
17. February, 09:53
David Januska
The only difference is that it was not possible to palce the weight in the nose so I install it between cockpit and bomb bay.
17. February, 09:55
Tony Tonov
Great work, David! I am currently building the same so the info about nose weight also is very useful.

David Januska
Thank you Tono, I'm glad that this might help. Looking forward for your kit.

Great job! How was building the kit? Did it fall together well?
22. December 2020, 15:26
Gerald Willing
Yes, a simple kit, easy to build :)

So you didn't have any problems with canopy warpage?
23. December 2020, 02:21
Gerald Willing
Oh the canopy was slightly warped. I usually use Ponal, a water-based wood glue, for this. Put on the canopy with the glue. Then it is important to wait a few minutes. Then you can treat the glue like silicone and smooth it out with a finger moistened with water. The surfaces smeared with glue can easily be cleaned with a damp paper tissue. ;)
