Materials and tools:

  2. tweezers;
  3. glue brushes and paint;
  4. watercolors (or pencils), toothpicks;
  5. clear acrylic glue ("Moment", etc.);
  6. to print the model matte photo paper with a density of 170-180 g / m2; for small parts - 70-80 g / m2.

Build Tips:

  1. Before you assemble the part, read the drawings and instructions. Determine the place of each part and imagine its assembly;
  2. Make holes in details before cutting out the part;
  3. Cut only the part (s) you need right now. Unpacked items in a box, and unused sheets in a closed folder (as an option). Throwing out trash after work, carefully inspect the scrap paper;
  4. To better fold the part, it is necessary to hold the ruler along the fold line, pressing lightly with the blunt side of the knife or a toothpick so as not to damage the paper surface. Better to do it from the wrong side of the part;
  5. Keep your fingers clean and be sure to use wipes to wipe your hands, because hands may get dirty in the process;
  6. wind up cylindrical parts before gluing onto a round object of a suitable diameter, this will give them shape;
  7. Before gluing it is necessary to paint the ends of the part. White crop lines spoil the overall look of the model. To paint the ends, use watercolors or gouache paints. After selecting the desired color, apply them in a thin layer, then allow the paint to dry. About markers better to forget;
  8. Take your time with gluing. First, cut out the part, paint it from the end, wait for the paint to dry, assemble the part. Attach it to the place where it should be to make sure everything is done correctly. And only then stick. Do not forget to let the glue dry.

A bit of history

German auxiliary plane Fieseler Fi 158

By request of the RLM Technical Department, Fieseler designed and built the Fi.157 target aircraft in a short period of time. It was a lightweight single-engine aircraft that resembled standard training machines of the time, equipped with a low-power engine with a metal twin-bladed propeller and a fixed chassis.The plane was supposed to be suspended under a bomber carrier and detach from it in flight.

In 1937, three prototypes were built, which were soon destroyed for various reasons. Fieseler in 1938 proposed a manned version Fi.158V-1, designed for experiments on radio monitoring. In contrast to the unmanned version Fi.158 was equipped with a cockpit, fully retractable landing gear and a 6-cylinder Hirth HM506A engine. Tests of the only prototype ended in 1939 and serially Fi.158 was not built.
