probably not going to get anything done tomoz unfortunately, but at least the primer should go off properly
 
I hate to say this but I already have one, and a Pinz to go with it.

I could have one Wokka picking up the 105 and another Wokka picking up the Pinz of course......... that will deffo fill the top of her piano
To expedite the Chinooks display, how about crafting some strops from wire and having the piano appear as an underslung load?

a little step forwards but only a small step. Shagged our having been in a car all day.
 
Bit more progress tonight and some tidying up where the primer has got onto the chroma green, but it’s not a problem.

The etch edges are an utter pain in the arse as every time you move the wings the fcukers come off.
 
Urethane adhesive (Gorilla glue) applied very sparingly.

Already tried it. Problem is the wings swing uncontrollably when you are manipulating it and the knock the etch off and when you use tape to tape them down it lists the primer off!!!!

That can be a tad inconvenient. Has happened a few times in real life when a some F4 crews had to resort to the Martin-Baker recovery system.

Suggestion: Tie a bit of cotton thread between the holes on the separate parts. I can see a few potential candidates there. Obviously there will be a line left in the paint job but at least you won't be lifting anything unlike tape.

Bugger! Something quicker. A hot melt gun?
 
Right. I’ve got this far and I am sick to fcuking death of these wings. They are an utter pain in the fcuking Arrse.

fcuked up with the landing gear - should have painted that grey but chrome before I did the landing gear navy
 
I’m going to leave it now for 3 or 4 days for the primer to cure properly and crack on with the other bits for it like the bomb bays
