Work continues on the Berg, cockpit is partially installed, the decaling started with that nice camo print.
I was wondering where the machine guns were on the kit sprue, well, I found them molded to each side of the fuselage…… yuk, add a barrel once it is glued up. I guess it will be ok once it is glued together.
some reinforcement for the instrument panel and real bulkhead were added.
some generic German instruments decals were added to the panel.
OK, let the fun begin!! As you can see, the decals are oversize when applied and will need to be trimmed once dry.
The three “bumps” in the back are where control cables will exit the fuselage to the elevators and rudder.
Underside of the wings were painted, hopefully to let the ribs show thru….
And then POW, the upper wing camo shattered!! It started to curl up when it hit the water and dumbass touched it which probably caused the tearing. I should have went with my instinct and cut it into smaller segments to apply it. Crap…..
Well, morning comes and the upper wing doesn’t look as bad as yesterday. It might turn out ok, we’ll see.
