Well, here we are at the end. It has been an interesting and educational adventure. I hope everyone who stopped by to see my progress had as much enjoyment as I have had.

Almost done here we have the Moonbat finally standing on its own.
Thankfully I did put enough clay and birdshot in the nacelles and nose to make it stand on its own without being a tailsitter.
All thats left is to add the props, paint and attach the canopy, decals and a bit of weathering. Stay tuned for more exciting adventures.

To make the Exhaust I couldn't find the right size rod to compress, but I did find something that strangely did fit the bill.Rubberized heat shrink tubing.Taking two different sizes squeezed slightly and glued together,painted burnt metal and inserted in to the opening

From there I added some thin rod that's bendable to the strut

and attached the main wheels,

Nose gear and wheels along with the gear doors.

Building the landing gear I used brass rod cut and rounded on the ends soldering the axle on and using a smaller rod for the shock strut.Then plastic card to make the compression scissors and I clipped a bouquet pin to make the scissor rods and part of the shocks for the gear and doors. The larger portion of the shocks I used aluminium rod.

I preshaded the upper and lower fuselage panel lines then sprayed a
light coat of olive drab for the top and Light gull grey for the underneath with a second coat of dark green for the camo effect around the outer edges.

Adding the rudder and ailerons, I scraped out the plastic to give a ribbing covered fabric look.

Finally my primer coat. there are a few areas to touch up but not as much as I feared.


From here the next Item will be to scribe my panel lines back. This is the part I hate with a passion. Never quite seem to get it the way I want. Cross your fingers.

One item I did notice from the previous photo the tail has a decided bend to it. I'll have to see what I can do to straighten it out without cutting and splicing. This is not a model... it's an adventure!

I attached to outside wingtips with some card to use as tabs to hold in place. Unfortunately, the tips don't match neither the leading edge,thickness, nor the panel lines. Thank God for Milliput. speaking of which, isn't this how "Bondo" Brandt got started and gained his nickname? I let this dry and harden the do some more sanding. I'm almost ready to put this plane in the paint. With luck I hope this weekend.

I attached the prop spinners smoothing out the shape to match.
