well i have not done much to the Fury of late, been too busy with work.

i have started covering the lower wing with tissue and will be adding silk to that later.

my pilot figure is coming on slowly.

this is the Mk2 head.

It was printed at 0.2mm layer height as i needed a quick print to see how it would turn out, the final version will be printed at 0.1mm to get a smoother finish.

we plod on.

Looking great Tony and I love the gun and pilot. Where did you get your silk from?

Well i have finished soldering the cabanes up.

hopefully it will be strong enough.

time for a trial fit, i need to mod the upper wing fittings a touch more, but it almost looks like a fury.

Ailerons and final sanding next.

That’s a Fury all right! This is going to be good.

sheeted the section of fuselage between the cabanes and then covered it with chrome tape.

not great, but looks ok from a distance.

i have also been filling the hole in the underside of the nose.

the hole was left so i could wire up the motor, but now that is done and working i have filled it.

will sand it all down tomorrow and get it ready for covering.

we plod on

Remind me to never do a biplane again, especially one that is polished aluminium.
sticking chrome tape to depron is not easy as the surface is not firm enough.
looks ok from a distance though.

It certainly does Tony. It is going to be a stunning model.

started the other side this evening.

I marked up the panel lines with black marker pen.

Then i cut the tape to match the lines, overlapping each section of tape until the panel is completed.

the next panel is started just to the edge of the black line, leaving a small gap between the panels.

the black in the gap then highlights the panels...i hope.

we plod on

foil work done.

now while it does not look as good as litho plate, i think it will do me.

next job is to make up all the removable panels,louves and stick them on, plus rivets and fixings and....eeeeeeeeeeeeep.

will it ever end.
