First, thanks everyone.

Here is the assembly of the longerons, struts and tail.





On the rudders there is the error reported rightly by AndRoby67: the inscription of the serial number is missing on the internal faces of the external rudders.
When I make this 1/33 scale model I will make the tail exactly.

Incredible work on the tail surfaces and booms. You are a Paper Master for sure!

Matt
For those of us who are cellulose challenged, how did you make the longerons? I don't see folded and glued paper being stiff and strong enough to support the empanage much less stand up to handling and rigging. Then again I don't see how y'all paper masters turn out such incredible pieces of work.

There is something fundamentally amiss with a society which forces it's modelers to work for a living.

Stainless steel rods, the paper that is wrapped around is 80gr/mq

Thanks Matt, I was hoping there was a hidden secret there.
I suppose the grade of paper is extremely important and a working knowledge of different paper grades is essential. I have tried a paper card model or two, but gave it up as beyond my abilities. Y'all are demonstrating a level of skill that would drive a Japanese Orgami Master crosseyed. I can't do it, but I sure enjoy watching paper models come together here.

What a wonderful treat to see you on this forum, Matt77. You are one of my favorite designers, and your repaints are excellent too. I've followed you on Papermodelers.com for many years.

Great work until now!
I have a question: what you use for rigging in paper models?

In 1/48 scale everything is much faster, thanks a little to the lack of detail

Hi matt77,
thank you for your answer.
If I see well, you add roundels on upper wing, with right green outer ring.
This was not common practice, our pusher planes (Fiat-Farman, Voisin etc.) had no roundels on upper surfaces.
Excellent work until now.

About the roundel issue, I hesitated because I never found photos that portrayed the upper part of the wings.
I could not say if the wing was with or without cockade.
Then I found a photo that shows the SP3 from behind and lets see the upper wing, this one here:

At the top left is visible the roundel

Regard,
