Thanks for your encouraging word. Beware that I have not come to the difficult part yet.

Nine days to go, which makes me realize that I seriously doubt I will have time to finish this build in time. That's alright though. There is so much time and thought gone into this build that, rather than screwing the pooch to make it to the deadline, I'd like to get it completed as closed to what I have in mind as possible.

Engines complete.

The are not authentic looking, not by a long shot. Hopefully, with industrious use om gizmology, have I have made them look enginy enough. The Napier Lion IX of the thing was a much sleeker, modernistic pieces of machine housing design.

As I am something of a relentless optimist, I have some progress to show. The landing gear of the Vickers Victoria looks like so...



... so I soldered this mess off brass together and put a couple of GW shields on the axel for wheels. Quite complicted and time consuming, to be honest.



Fitted under the wings just to check how it all will work.

So, I've now cut the fuselage in two and removed the maquette. The tail fin is fitted to the rear piece. Looks quite alrigh.

That's rather clever. So some good has come from GW after all.

The maquette will now be reshaped for new purposes.



I have realized I need something solid to fasten the wings and supports in or the whole thing will be very fragile.

The techniques that you are using in this build go far above and beyond any that I expected in this contest.
Amazing!

Really enjoying this one. I'm glad you are still doing the over-the-top builds that drew me here to LAF several years ago Smiley

Sod. Fuck. Arse. I just realized that I should have done the rivet punching before I removed the wood maquette.  Angry
