Hi guys and gales

Its Wings and Things time!.....the worst stage for any scratch build in my opinion! :sad:

The thing is ....attaching the wings can be the make or break of the model....not so bad for a kit as everything is totally lined up for the connection...well it should be if the manufacturer is good....but for a scratch build its almost kind of suck it and see....hours of staring at it from all angles ...is the dihedral correct ....in fact should the wings actually be dihedral?....quick another look at some plans/photos...and how the hell am I supposed to make those wing root fairings!!! ..... it has to be a strong connection at the wing root else your in trouble!...as so it goes on....

But hey ho ...its just a model....no need to loose any sleep over it is there?....is there?

So photo time...I have also made the tail fin and attached it......here's the fin...made from Balsa.

Image

all put together and marked ...minus the wood sealer

Image

So to the wings. This next photo shows the preparation of the wing root attachment ....

Image

Here is the Port wing made from Balsa. You can see that I have super glued a couple of small nails for strength of the attachment...

Image

...all ready to attach!

Image

The next 2 photos show both wings attached including the tail fin....

Image

Image

I made made the elevators out of Balsa and fixed them into their position and then gave the whole control surfaces a dose of wood sealant and paint.

The next few photos show my progress so far....

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

This last photos shows the blasted wing fairing I made from a small strip of plastic.....fiddly as Hell...and you know how fiddly Hell is!

I am pleased this part of the build is finished as it always gives me sleepless nights!

Next up I think is going to be the spinner and a few minor details on the wings and a bit of a tidying up here and there with filler!

So until then.....BFN!

Cheers

Fozzy

Oh wow, this is wonderful to watch. There's some top scratch building going on here, Fozzy. And using balsa wood - I would if I could but I'm the world's worst woodworker!

This is amazing! I'm so impressed. It is a beautiful plane - I am looking forward to building my Heller kit at some point.
Thanks so much for detailing each of your techniques, it's immensely helpful.

Afternoon chaps!

I hope all is well in your modelling world your end!

Lots of progress this end with this build which means lots of photos!! ;-) .....so apologies before I start!

In this post I have finished most of the detailing all except the under carriage......so lets start off with the prop!

The easiest way for me to make the spinner and blades was to carve from balsa....here's the block ready for the spinner....

Image

...and here it is finished....

Image

Blades were next ,again from a balsa block.....

Image

....and here is the finished prop all put together....

Image

Now for some more detail.......a piece of kit sprue filed down makes good blisters for the upper wings...although it was trial and error as its only 3mm small...damn fiddly

Image

Bits of plastic for the trim tabs and ailerons hinges.....

Image

Plastic support struts for the stabilizers....


Image

the barrels are a cut piece of telephone cable and the drums are made from Balsa on these underwing MAC 1934
Mgs....


Image

again telephone wire for the auxiliary fuel tank lines....(why the French designers would have these exposed I shall never figure out :???: ...must be a reason I guess!!)

Image

Here's the tail skid and actuation rods for the rudder and trim tabs...again plastic scrap and wire...

Image

here's the access step and foot hold...also the bloody fiddly ASI !!..(excuse my French!...well it is a French machine!
:ha:


Image

You can see in this shot the head rest for the pilot....

Image

....and finally!!......here are 5 overall shots!..........

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Really getting to the end of this build now.......next up will be the dangley old undercart!.....looking forward to those wheel spats......NOT!!!!!

Thanks for your patients in ploughing through all these photos!! ;-)

Cheers

Fozzy

No complaints from me regarding the number of pics, Fozzy - a picture paints a thousand words and all that! Although admittedly the D510 is not at the top of my Aircraft To Build Before I Kark It list, I'm finding this very engaging indeed - there's some excellent work going on here and not least that that wooden prop and spinner assembly!

Excellent work Fozzy; I built the Heller 1/72 D510 last year, and yours is looking far better!

WOW!

I wish I had followed this from the beginning - it's fantastic!

Loving the work - far outside my skillset, I reckon, but I have been tempted to scratch-build a Proctuka or a Pilatus P-2 for the movie collection....
