Hello
Update on the ME-329 build
Today got around to gluing the cockpit into the front fuselage and squaring it up.
 Then the inside walls for the cockpit were cut out and shaped to match the curvature.
 Being only thin card and no glue tabs, these had to be edge glued to the inside of the bulkheads. This takes a while, one piece at a time and only glue a small section at a time. Then wait for the glue to dry and then glue the next section.
 Here is where I am at tonight. In the 3rd pic you will see why the quadrant arms had to be modified to match the real aircraft. If they had been left straight they would have probably hit the wall of the cockpit or at least been very awkward to handle.

Till next time, have a good evening and thank you for following.

Good day everyone.
 Today's update on the Me-329 build.
She has wings, sort of.
 Started by assembling the engine nacelle core. This is the most rigid part of the wing and will help to square the rest of it.
 The leading and trailing spars are attached to this. the the rest of the wing formers are added and squared.
 When dry, the slide tubes for the mounting spars were rolled and glued into place.
 Slid the wings onto the fuselage to see how they looked.
 Since I will be installing the engines, the core of the engine nacelle will be cutout after the engine cover and lower nacelle skins are shaped and assembled.

 Thank you for following.

Update for the Me-329 papermodel build.
As the saying goes, now is the time to get serious.
Ready to start assembling the wings for this beastie.
 Today cutout all the relevant parts for the main framework for the wings.
 Thick card, went through 6 blades today. I guest we go shopping tomorrow.
