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 ;)

Mil Mi-6 Hook cockpit (Aviation museum of Riga, Latvia)

This huge baby welcomes you when you get inside the aviation museum of Riga. Before being replaced by the Mil Mi-26 Halo, the Mi-6 was the biggest helicopter in the world.  This aircraft was repainted by the museum. Needless to say that when the guy of the museum asked me if I wanted to get inside this monster I was about to poop in my pants :-) Portboard landing gear I was lucky enough to get inside the monster and discover a museum full of soviet-era stuff Some access door on the ceiling Seat inside the nose of the monster Inside the nose (portboard) Starboard side of the nose +  my hairy arm as a bonus Above pilot's head
