ICM He 111H-3 – Day 25

You have to remember why I have been writing all this on My Forgotten Hobby III since October 31st.

It’s the only way I have found to restart building my collection of unbuilt model airplane kits. By writing about it here each passing day motivates me to make progress.

ICM He 111H-3 is quite challenging.

I will have to remember that calling it a day is sometimes the best way to avoid mistakes and to make notable progress.

As I was trying to add these parts yesterday morning I noticed I did not have to jam them through but just glue them gently.

I did one part at the time to let the glue set. 

 

While at it I glued more bomb braces and managed to lose one on the floor.

I was then confronted with these parts. Even if I did not expect any trouble I opted to skip that step.

Then came the bomb bay doors and the fit was perfect. 

Looking around for the next step I reached for the clear part sprue and located E24 but I decided to skip step 95.

The next steps seemed challenging enough to dry fit the parts first.

That’s where I saw problems aligning each part and gluing everything. After careful consideration I glued just one part making sure it was aligned perfectly to the front of the plane.

It was time to call it a day…
