That looks great Antonio!  I like the use of the tubing for the eyelets.  Something I will have to remember as it looks very clean.

Thanks Gaz and Giuseppe.
I made a mistake showing twice the picture of Top left side wing top surface instead of the right side one.
Now I have replaced it...

Really terrific work on the anchors for the rigging. I have to say again how much I Love the Camo!

Thanks Rick, I love the camo as well, it is brush painted (I have no airbrush and it's not a priority in my purchasing list!) but  I like the irregular look.

Maybe I use the wrong brushes, although I use many diluted coats, I seem not able to paint regular surfaces... so I must like what I do!

(I know the answer is buy yourself an airbrush but I have no energy to and time to dedicate to learning and experimenting such a new technique - maybe a brush painting course...)

Hallo,
just a "small" update, but it took a long time and a big amount of sweat in a 40ish C  heat...



the ring supporting the twin Lewis was 90% made from scratch.
It is made by two rings (lower wooden ring and upper iron ring).
The kit supplies just one ring and I used it painted in metal tone.
I had to made the lower one using a square section road (1 mm) that I curved to a circular-ish shape using hot water . But after a while it opened returning back towards its straight origins...
In the end I succeeded in gluing it in a closed form but it reminded more of an egg than of a circle, gluing the iron one on top it is sufficiently hidden.

The U shaped iron holder was made as well using a 0.75 diameter plastic rod that was bent to its shape and cut in the middle to glue it on the ring avoiding the straigthening tension.
The joint in the middle is a piece of rubber coating of a thin electric wire.
The two vertical elements standing on the metal circle were PE elements provided by the kit, but they did not have the holes and I drilled them.



These are the two Gaspatch Darne Lewis Full Heatsinks 1/48.
I made myself (white plasticard elements) a joining piece and a small rod for keeping the barrels parallel (I think), that I saw in many pictures.

That is all for now.

Thanks for watching

Antonio

The ring and guns will be a very nice addition to your already great Breguet.
