Good luck with the recovery from the latest foot operation Dave.

It looks like nothing is simple with the Zwilling! One lot of wing fairings would be enough - two is a bit of a pain!

This will look unique in the air!

Yes, that last photo shows what a bold and complex project this is. It looks spectacular already!

All the Best,
Stephen.

  Thanks for your interest fella's, I've been able to do enough to post a report on the Zwilling.  The rudders have been fitted and I made up a simple jig to mold both the rudder and tail plane fillets, also I fitted some strips of plasticard so simulate the elevator hinges. Eventually I managed to get one of the fuses caught in my swivel chair and crushed a couple of longerons, had to happen eventually! Finally I've fitted the 2 outboard nacelles and then did a mock up with the wing panels fitted.

I'm really enjoying seeing this come together. I'd buy one of those tickets Bill mentioned.

You are a master of moulded plastic details Dave - not to mention the rest of the model.

What an impressive looking mock up.

  Well I'm still going if only slow.
   I carved out a blank for the underside Gondolas and molded them from 1 mm clear plastic, Photo 1
  The He111Z does not use the internal bomb racks but it does carry 4 900 litre drop tanks so I added some balsa mounts and then sanded them to shape, Photo 2 and 3, also shown in photo 3 are the Drop Tank mounts made from .5 mm alum.   Photo 4 shows the completed Drop Tanks, I managed to find a day that a hospital visit wasn't required and got stuck in spinning them up on the lathe and  molded the nose cap from plastic all in one go, but I forgot to take any Photos!  Final 2 photos Show the Drop Tanks fitted. I glued the tanks in place using the Alum mounts to hold them in place and after they were dry I drilled two 5mm holes in each tank passing through the blister on the fuse and glued a 5mm dowel that passed right through them to hold them in place,

I admire your dedication particularly under the circumstances.

Dropped in to the Putterill household last evening and persuaded Dave to pose for a pic or two!
The Zwill looks great and Dave showed me a box full of formers/plugs etc for the exhaust/cowl/fairing bits.
There is a danger with this model that Dave might just keep on adding more wings and fuselages and nacelles. He's tooled up for it, so be afraid! :-)

Dave,
         That is one impressive model. I am curious as to how you plan to launch it given the size and area covered. At least you do not have the rubber motor holding problem. Well done.

Great to see the pics of you holding it Dave, not sure I appreciated the wingspan before.  As others have said - that is one impressive model.
