Hi again Louis

This is one of those builds where every time I catch up, I'm simply left gob-smacked! It just puts most of what we see to shame.

All the best

Thank you very much!




The support of the machine gun is placed just to see
I have two machine guns that come from "gaspatch models" I have only to choose which one.... Both are equipped with a gigantic drum. It is not often seen on the ground. It had to greatly diminish the pilot's field of vision.






The glazed hatch in front of the windshield is installed.
The cannonl is in place.

Thank you !

The rudder is controlled by two cables (one on each side of the plane) that line the lower beams ...




... each cable passes through a pulley attached to the foot of the mat ...

Pulley on the inside of the mat:



Or pulley to the "outside" of the mat, you have the choice:






... then enters the cockpit somewhere there. I did not find precisely where.



As for how they are attached to the rudder I have no info.



The ailerons are connected to each other by a rigid bar and controlled by cables which come out of the wings by a pulley. One at the top, one at the bottom.




The exact position of the cables ... between the mats, on the same side, on both sides etc etc I did at best.










The Pitot tube (well, I think that's it).





The plane is fixed to its base, there are so many cables that moving the plane is difficult. The wings are so long that they deform when I lift it. This eventually breaks the cables.

So I put two fishing lines through the base and I put them through each wheel, passing between two rays, knots and some glue.

Finished!

I will try to make correct pictures outdoors when there is no more wind.

It remains for me to finish the diorama.

Regards.

Hello.

Figurine:


I used "FIMO" paste found in all graphic art shops or in some supermarkets. It's sold in small quantities and it's cheap.

The goal was to get something resembling the man sitting on the wheel.



The suit, very wide, with the helmet so seating.







The first version of the head, too big with a nose too low:









The helmet is a German helmet (2ww) reworked and modified with 2 components Tamiya mastics which is very easy to model.

The new, more classic head:



With the woolen hood that stings:









All dark parts are in 2 component Tamiya Mastics.

I admit that for once I am pretty happy with the result.

Hello!




I wanted to make a scene with a lot of gas in front of the plane. Alas it is too long to manufacture and very very boring. that serve as a buffer. The white line is a piece of decal.
The posters on the boxes are paper copies.








The circular hollows on both sides of the can is made with an old steel rod and a hammer blow.





The Benzo brand is made with two small plastic rods























Mr. Eduard (or M. Copper State, or M. Renaissance), if you read our montages sometimes, you could make pretty cans and wooden boxes. It would not cost you anything to design them and there are blue, yellow, red, long, short, cubic, ... enough to make many different versions in one box. And if you can make them in resin it would be better.

CANS


BENZO BOX
