Blohm und Voss P.212.02 - part 06

Finally, some real progress!  :)

I started off with making the engine intakes.
The engine intakes comprises 5 parts.  Those "wavy patterns" you see are the valley/mountain fold markes added by Pepakura.  They'll disappear once I add the textures later on.

Here's how it looks like when completed.  Notice that the printed side is rolled inwards. 

Next up is the parts for the engine exhaust. 

Good fit so far.

The rest of the fuselage parts are pretty much standard fare.   The picture above shows the finished components that comprise the fuselage.

Assembly starts with the front most parts.  I attached the first 4 components (seen from the left of the fifth picture above).  Before attaching the next component, I affixed the engine intakes.

Here's another shot of how the engine intakes look after attached to the fuselage.

Now comes the hard part.  The rear wheel wells were a bit hard to fit. 

Fuselage done!

Before calling it a night, I tried to dry-fit the wings.

Yeah!  Hehehehe.... Fits perfectly!
The horizontal bars you saw on some of the formers worked in ensuring that the dihedrals of the wings are angled correctly.

Man those wings are big....

Here's a shot of the wheel wells.

That's all for now...
