About the handles..
Looking around I found this pic
http://www.wingnutwings.com/ww/vEF754EA7/www/products/model_kitsets/32065/archive_photos/Junkers%20D.1%205183~18%20details.jpg
Its visible in the upper left one that the handles where mounted on a V shape support, easy to simulate to a few thin paper strips (cyano hardened) and a little whire or wood string

Guys, hang on! The issue I have isn't with the material, it's that the D brackets are so small and I have senior fumble fingers! Smiley Smiley Smiley

I'm trying to figure out the best way to hold the little suckers still so I can glue the rod on. I think I'm going to lay down some masking tape sticky side up to hold the little brackets and then glue everything together.

As a former static models maker, I would lay three paper stripes flat, spaced a proper distance in paralel, then glue the wire across, bend and trim excess (while holding by the wire with tweezers)

AH-HA!! It worked!!

Thanks for the suggestions folks. Some interesting ideas there.

The two left handles will have a third bracket added once the glue on the end pieces dries.

Yagua is correct on the handle. The "D" was for simplicity although small a detail
such as it is. Had I been able to do it in thin plastic sheet and rod it would have been
scale.

Got the lift handles installed. Fuselage still needs head rest and windscreen installed.

Next task deciding whether to install the landing gear or the wings next.

Just about there! Still on the to do list:
Bending up the prop shaft (Need to decide whether to paint the grey prop or not)
Making the hole for the rear peg
Mounting the machine guns. This is a puzzlement. I think i need to add a spacer to the bottom of the guns because without it the left gun is aimed at the back of the radiator and the right gun rests on the top of the exhaust.

Oh, and weight with guns and motor is .811 ounces! Dang!!

Can you un-glue the exhaust? I went thru the link I posted ( http://www.wingnutwings.com/ww/productdetail?productid=3180&cat=1 third row, picture at the center), and saw that the exhaust is lower (the entire engine, actually), and the frontal radiator is prety small (easy to sand down)

nice effort Dan. One of the things I used to worry about a lot was the cockpit coaming. After some serious procrastination I bit the bullet and fig'd out a way to do it that made sense to me. It made a big difference in the appearance of my Tripehound. It added zero to the flight time, but it was a thorn in my saddle till I worked it out.

I know what you mean Crabby, I've considered and discarded several ideas about the coaming. Tried out a coupe but didn't like the the results. I will figure it out eventually.
