Yesterday I had this weird idea that finishing the model would be possible today. Unfortunately, as it goes, I ran into some problems.
So far so good I guess.. although it was becoming clear that I wouldn’t be finishing the build today, so I am aiming sometime this week depending on how much time I will have.
The fuel tank rack turned out to be problematic. I glued in on way too early and I am not sure why. But the result is not only that it broke off, but because the weight of the body has leaned on it too much it has become impossible to glue on the fuel tank in the ‘conventional’ way.
So instead of a longer day where I would be able to finish the entire model it looks like it will be another string of short sessions to finish it off.
I am really starting to look forward to continuing the B747-8F and finally putting this thing on display.
