Transport aircraft Li-2: the history of one assembly 8

Li-2 Maly STORY

But, this is a cardboard model and its complexity should be in balance with the simplicity of the cardboard technology genre as a whole. But, this is again a matter for discussion. How complex should be a cardboard model be?

Here is my “anvil,” which I have already mentioned. The fork was also annealed, flattened, drilled, wrapped in copper wire and soldered.

This is a tail wheel with a axis that has not yet been cut to size. 

This can already be sent to the photographic contest …. 🙂

The tail wheel strut was wrapped glued with paper, then another tube was inserted into the corresponding diameter, which was glued into the fuselage. I made a rotary design.

The last pictures was taken by my boy. My son is growing, well done! I just little corrected the brightness-contrast. *)

That’s all for today. So far, there are a lot of other job and I can’t to get to the model.

And some more details need to be painted.
