The time has finally come… The control wheels were painted black as well as the tires on Wednesday.

I will follow the same procedure I have used with the He 111. I will be mating the fuselage halves in sections.

I will go first with the front section and then let everything dry rock solid.

Before…

After…? Guess what?

I just couldn’t wait.

While I am waiting for everything to dry rock solid I will be checking out my Monogram B-26 which was bought in the late 70s.

Jeff the Inch High Guy was quite inspirational on Wednesday…

    How many planes, Pierre, do you typically have under construction at any given time?

      Only two. The He 111 and the PBY.

    The B-26 won’t be built until both are completed.
