As you can see, the top wing is on, the struts are in place, and it is
mostly rigged. These two shots show that I have a good deal of cleanup to
do on it, and alot of touch up. But it is proceeding, and should be done
some time this year.
These are the bombs and bomb racks. The bombs are cast in epoxy and
microballoons. The fins and racks are styrene. I am tempted to cast 1:1
versions to drop on this fellow modeler friend of mine who keeps telling me
how impressed he is that I have made such a nice model from the Aurora
Here's a few more Gotha pics. They are self-explanatory, except to add that I have begun touching up
the lozenge. Soon I will construct my wing-fitting jig. I may actually
survive to see this thing through!
I said I'd do it and I finally am. This is a project which I have wanted to do
for some time. Except where noted, all components are scratchbuilt by Yours
Truly. Please excuse the poor photo quality - it is the last time I EVER take
a roll of film to CVS pharmacy for development!
