I`ve managed to glue the nacelles:


I`ve decided to instal the machine gun because there`s definitely something in the only picture of the Hydravion I`ve found online...







I`ve weathered the engine nacelles to imitate some castor oil staining. I`ve added scratch-built oil pulsators.







I`ve prepared the wing for the nacelles assembly. Once again I`m more than happy that CSM has prepared these great fittings.



Best regards
Filip

What a fantastic build!
One day in future I will open my box, and on the PC monitor your build log as template to follow ;)

Cheers,

Many thanks!!!
Nothing spectacular but I keep on working. Around sixty buckles and lines prepared to be fixed to the upper wing anchor points... twice as much still left to be done.

I use the 0,08 fishing line.

The upper wing is ready to be fixed.



Floats painted and weathered a little bit.

Beautifully painted! I would swear that I can actually see through the fabric on the wing!! The weathering on the floats look awesome!
