    Wow!the Alclad gloss black primer really produces a mirror finish!

    I tape 2 sheets of 100 grit sandpaper on a piece of glass and sand the parts in a figure 8 pattern to ensure the parts match up.I installed a laminated piece of plastic through the fuselage to act as a wing spar.Makes for sturdy construction.

    Mounted up the wings and engines.Much gappage to deal with.

    Broke out the winghalves and joined them together.one strange thing i have noticed while building this kit is the consistent misalignment of parts by about a sixteenth of an inch.New one on me as on previous vac forms the parts fit quite well.I will fix the problems but it is odd,I think each mirror image of half is larger than its counterpart.

    This vac form 1/72 Contrail HP42 was one of the most difficult kits i have ever built.Very complex.

    Thanks Harry was complaining about my messy workbench so I thought that the dark gray couch would highlight the printed cammo!
