Anatra Anasal Build


This is going to be a long job, so thought I'd 'journal' it.

#1
Completed the intial sub-assemblies and splashed some paint around to get a feel for it, all in all looking a bit more straightforward than I imagined but looks like progress will be paint a bit, fit a bit, repeat.  I just need to take my time.

#2
 The engine cooling system was a tricky bit as the 'plumbing' didn't seem to be a great fit.  I'll paint what's done so far as once more bits are added, access could be a problem.  A lot of handling still required so full Klear treatment needed.  The magnetic flight stand will come in handy. A fair bit of work still to go.

#3
Beginning to look more like an aircraft, wing struts next and a likely struggle with the wing geometry.

#4
As it turned out the decals were perfectly fine.  The decals will get another coat of Klear, then onto the rigging.  I'll leave the undercarriage and propeller 'til last as I've a habit of breakinf these items if I have to work around them.

FINAL
Build complete, just got the paintwork to tidy up and give it a coat of varnish.
