Stormtalon Phase 2: Pre-Assembly

Here it is, the first view of the (partially) assembled Stormtalon.

The Sopwith-Pattern Stormtalon

Sorry about the poor lighting.  It was rather late last night, and I didn’t want to make a full production out of taking a few pictures.  I have to say, it’s amazing how well the main body sections hang together without glue.

For the most part, everything seems to be well-aligned.  I was worried the wings would be crooked after attaching them to the engine pods, but they seem okay.  The autocannon housing, however, is a little off.  I’m a bit miffed I didn’t catch this earlier, but one side is just a touch lower than the other.  I can’t really fix it at this point – I’d have to build a whole new housing.  However, I’m also thinking about building a new pair of autocannons to look more like the old Vickers water-cooled machine guns some biplanes used to carry so I may just leave the housing as it is for now.

Here are some other views.
