And however well-made the replacement parts are, the lack of numbers and correspondence to locations on the model make this build more and more like a small scale 1000-pieces puzzle.
And I kind of lack the energy to see it as a challenge and plain fun to figure out where all the parts should go.
Four big interview shoots coming up in a couple of days. Crucial for the documentary we're making at the moment. Very time consuming and it all needs a lot of organising.
At the moment I am getting a bit stuck at the wing root. There are really a lot of parts, which make the shape all the more realistic but also very complex in 1/400. Maybe I will restart the build completely after the interview sessions are done, knowing now what I'll encounter later on. For now here's where I am.
a couple more pictures after the jump.
|not glued yet but held in place. This is where I am stuck now. It is not looking right and I don't know what part I should use here...|
