Did a little 'cleaning up'  on the fuselage today, plus the Ventral weapons pack and lastly, the tail cone of the fuselage. More work on the fuselage tomorrow,  and then it's on to the Main Wings!

Decided I'd better get the stuff tied up in a bow and ready for the Main Wing.  painting stuff and getting ready for the largest part of the model, the main wing assembly, including both nacells and engines with main landing gear, ect.Yet to be done, [how could I forget this] the main TAIL ASSEMBLY.  Here are the main landing gear, in diecast metal, painted in white primer so later correct color acrylic paint won't flake off the metal parts.  Just finishing up stuff I can so I can move towards the Finishing of this model!

Forgot to put the pic of the metal landing gear up...still doing stuff I can while waiting for other things are waiting to dry and such...
Posted ImageOne of the things I'm doing to speed things up down the line...Metal needs a primer so further painting down the line won't flake off.  doing some paint fixes on the Ventral weapons pack.

Thanks. Planet X-1!  I just finished up on the ventral weapons pack and the frame it hangs from. now all I have to do is insert the feeding tubes for the ammo to the 20 mm cannons and the bottom cover for the weapons pack. Then the middle and rear fuselage exept for the tail piece will be done for the fuselage.  Then comes the Tail pieces and tail cone. Then on to the Main wings and engine nacells.

Tore the cockpit apart, and am waiting to completely re-do it when the sprues I re-bought get here by the end of this week.I realized I'd mis built it when I went to add the inside nose assembly cover where the armor pilot gets protected and the gunsight sits didn't sit right where it should, and here are the instructions to show you what parts I'm talking about and how they should sit.
Posted Image

The Nose Armor plate and the fold down Armor plate [which folds down on the actual aircraft] will NOT sit down flat like it should because of out of place parts in the forward cockpit area.  This will be rectified!

Now that I'm Back, I must catch everyone up to what I've been up to.  The new sprues are here, And I've been rebuilding the cockpit area and doing some things I didn't the first time.  Including painting the pistol holders on either side front on the left side, rear on the right side
Posted ImageNeat addition to this model, I thought!

I'm going through parts from the new sprues I received Last week, and also the first ones I did, and seeing where the process I used would be improved.  It's making me VERY HAPPY!  Doing the flight deck over has proven extremely GOOD for me!  Gas and Groceries tomorrow, but may get back to model later in day.

Haven't gotten back yet. Just purchased Vallejo Chrome paint for the 'oleo'  joints on the landing gear on the Z-M He 219 A-0
Posted ImageThe siver part is the part that needs primer, then the chome that's on the way later this week.
This part acts like a 'Shock absorber' for the landing gear strut and there are 'oleo' parts to all landing gear struts.

wow.  I have to slow down....My brain is NOT connecting the dots... Planet X-1, the details are acheived by Photo Etch sheets.  ultra thin sheets of  brass or sometimes Steel or tin sheets etched with chemicals and then painted to enhance appearences of details in the space they are in. Heres a sheet with a ruler to show the sixe

First photo is the flight deck bottom, The red globular parts are compressed air containers for the ejection seats.The second pic, the red painted handle in the Radar/radio operator's area next to the radar viewing hoods is the handle used to eject the Radar/Radio operator's seat.  Also, the long red bar next to the Pilot's seat on the armrest console is the lever for ejecting the Pilot's seat.
