Here's the progress on a Lavochkin LA-11 "Fang"  27" span model.  I drew the plans off a couple 3-view I found on the internet.  I am using a cracked rib wing construction and fuselage box with formers construction. Here's the progress pretty far along.  I've been away from modeling so had to relearn some things in this build.  I used paper tubes to line the gun ports in the cowling.

Cool, make sure those tubes converge about 15' in front of the model and you're good!  Wink

Made some more progress on the "Fang" ...tissue is on using white domestic that went on wet just fine, but as it dried it shrank tight and split in a few places.  sections were cut out and replaced with some over lap.  Saw a note in one of the latest FAC Newsletters about using acetate for aerials/antennas and found a gift box that my wife received last Christmas that seemed to be just the right thickness.  I cut a slot in the stringer behind the cockpit and sanded the bottom edge a bit thinner so it would slip into the slot cut with a single edge razor blade.  I have since made wing root farings but haven't gotten pictures of that yet.  Just got my balsa blocks for the canopy mold that needs to be carved so still have lots to do.  Here's some of the progress pics...
