S-3 Viking

Progress is glacial as per usual and last night was spent figuring out where the support struts are fitted for the folded wings. The weight of the resin wings is giving me some cause for concern as I don’t think the hinges will take much to break, especially when moving the model around so I need to add the struts which means drilling holes in the wings and top fuselage.
After some research I’ve decided where the holes will be (well as near as dammit anyway) and this pic will give you some idea what the model will look like with the wings folded (without the sanding pad of course);

Still lots to do though!

I've been a modelmaker for a verrry long time and still show no signs of growing out of it after 48 years. I mainly build tanks, aircraft and paint figures but generally do whatever takes my fancy whether it's historical, Science-fiction, a 'what-if' or because it has pretty colours and looks nice. I'm hoping that you find my blog interesting and useful, particularly if building a model that I have built and documented here.
