Title: Junkers Ju 86Ka
Post by: Tophe on March 13, 2011, 09:39:10 am
I am now finishing my last models bought in the 1990s. Two of them I did not what to do with, so I am going to marry them into a twin-plane.
The Ju86D1 (Italaerei 1/72) and the PZL 23A Karas (Heller 1/72) will give birth to the Ju 86Ka.
(my project is that both Ju engines will be on the same wing shortened, and the other wing will go the Karas with the 3rd engine).

of course, this will make an asymmetric twin... ;D
Here is the aspect before hard truncating:

Starting to truncate and to make asymmetric:

Putty Sanding Repeat on the 86-nose is a hard job... :-\

The nose sanding was well advanced (picture below) when the starboard wing (shortened) broke from the fuselage, and completion will be delayed...

Close to completion. I plan to start painting before finishing the gluing (to let "as it" the tyres and Karas engine).

On my wedding day, the (filipino) judge told us: "now two become one". Here with the first drops of sky-blue paint, the same miracle happens on this couple:

The Ju 86Ka model is finished at last... I am glad it is rather small and strongly asymmetric.

How can this model stand without nose wheel nor tail wheel?
Well, my first project was dual tandem wheels, like on the Bréguet 760 (thanks to "Le Trait d'Union" magazine):

Three modelling steps:
1- As I had no hands enough to hold the model and adjust the spats at the center of gravity... I glued them approximately where I could with available room, than (after drying) the model fell on its tail: spats too much in front...
2- I glued the rear wheels hoping this would stand. After drying I removed the support and... the model fell on its tail again, breaking away the port rear wheel...
3- To support the rear of the port spat more efficiently, I took a mysterious little part of the Karas kit (support of machine gun?), like a 4-leg spider... Non rolling but it kept the model standing. Success. (Sigh of relief)
