Grumman JRF-5 Goose - Part 3

Thank you for your kind words !

I am very slow building this model, mainly explained by my wedding and the amount of work this bird requires. But I am still having fun, no rush .

Wings attached to the fuselage

I made a big hole for the landing light.

There is a big gap on the left wing (did I do that ?). I think I will use cyano gel to correct this problem

Another big gap to fill... Great I love that...

... and more work to adjust the canopy

Resin exhausts. I guess you see the problem here...

... I made the 2 exhausts similar and I made the little thingy smaller and drilled a hole

The wheels being to thin I added some styrene sheet ( 0.25mm)

To finish, I also corrected the rudder by adding some styrene on the lower part:

and added 2 small metal rods on the stabilizers to make my life easier

Hope you enjoy and thanks for reading ;)

Northrop P-61 Black Widow - Pictures Compilation

The Northrop P-61 Black Widow night fighter is definitely my favorite aircraft. The idea here is just to provide a few interesting pictures on the subject (see below for credits).

The P-61 was the first aircraft specifically designed  with a radar

The radar cone was not painted on the first aircraft and was made of fibreglass.
