Junkers Ju 86Ka
« 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).

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.
