I added the louvers on the left side today, quite the pain but I think they turned out okay.

All the detail is why we probably don't see scale planes anymore. You're doing a great job. It's been another "heli" of a day here

I bet you're right about that. Adding all the detail gets old really fast. And I haven't even started on the rigging or engine yet. Then I need to chamfer some parts too. I messed up really bad when I did the struts. I should have shaped the first strut before I duplicated it for all of the others. I didn't think about it at the time but now all of them would be finished instead of me having to go back and shape them. Oh I'll just shape one and then duplicate it everywhere but that could have been done already if I shaped the first one. Duh... Lesson learned, hopefully.

Same thing with painting....Ideally you'd copypaste to the other wing/fuse side instead of painting it all from scratch....but I need to "see it" in the editor to decide if I like the technique, and "half" just doesnt do it for me...so I paint the whole thing, AGAIN

Onward and upward here's the louvers on the right side. I don't know what's next that's a tomorrow decision. Oh I also made the radiator cap a bit taller.

Nice progress. You could always start on the wires

Ugh.. I hate doing wires. Dunno why though. Still the engine and windshield too. And a cutout in the radiator for the engine shaft.

The HStab and VStab was created as flat balsa so I added an airfoil to them this morning. Before I start mapping I'll add a chamfer to round off the square edges. I'm sure the airfoil isn't historically accurate but looks a lot nicer than flat balsa.

I took some time and recreated the cockpit piping spline so I can make it thicker. It turned out to be easier than I thought so it didn't take that long to do. So take a look at this render and see if it looks large enough to you. The original size was .25 the new size is .30. I put the old one next to the new one so you can see the difference.

Of course no matter what size it is, keeping it reasonable, it's going to be very hard to see from the air. So take a look and let me know how it looks to you. And everyone please chime in on this one.
