I think nice is an under statement - I just don't know how you do it

Fantastic work, as ever. I'm still not skilled enough to attempt joining two wires together then drawing them down to another point. How do you do it?

I've developed a deep hatred of Trumpeter's 1:350 scale method of producing aircraft, in particular, the Walrus.
                       They're moulded in a clear plastic which seems quite brittle and doesn't respond to glue all that well, the worst thing
is, seeing what you are doing is quite difficult.
                                                 To use the etched brass inter-plane struts, you have to remove the solid plastic struts.
Once this is done, it becomes obvious that the brass offerings are far too long (0.75mm aprox) and won't stand
shortening. I tried sinking the ends into drilled dimples to lose some of the length but of no avail.
                                                          The engine is located on the upper wing but "floats" above the lower wing so no help there.
                                     I did come up with a solution as you can see but its a bit on the scruffy side.
Now I know what works, I may do another, we'll see.I usually model these things out on patrol or in the hangar.
                                   Tamiya supply one moulded in grey plastic, including the inter-plane struts, it looks fine to me, there's one fitted on HMS Prince of Wales.

It may have been a pain to do but a quality model at the end and in 1/350 scale as well

That's excellent for the scale you're using Tony. Hats off to you.

Is that top wing 1 degree out?

Only Joking Haddock!

Fantastic work, and in 1/350 almost impossible....!

Admiration for everything on this build.

Cheers,
Bigkev

Job jobbed, waiting for a base and water, then some touching up.

Another excellent ship that impresses greatly. One very very small eenie weenie point and I accept 1:350 in an incredibly small scale for aircraft models, but I think the propeller on the Walrus is a tad on the heavy side.

Hello Mr Haddock,
Superb skills... ..somethings never change.
Ive been looking at 3D printers myself. The resin ones seem better for small parts.
Cheers all.
