Great thing to do, Fletcher!
I also have one in 1/32 by Revell and sometime planning to do it crashed down!
I have some interesting photos of Fi 156, if you want I can post them here.

Don't worry guys, I'll take some new pics, just no sbs for the present. (maybe never?)

Just give me a few hours.

Well, here are some pics of where I'm at now. So far, everything has gone together really well. I actually had some fun doing it.

Here is the cockpit bracing:



Engine:





engine compartment bulkhead:



Sidewall, (I added some wires to the control handles, dunno if they're accurate, don't care )





Cockpit. I added lead foil seatbelts





Bracing tacked on with kneaded eraser:



I love to look of this aircraft:







I might put some paint on today. I've also started on the wings, they are good so far. I'm still freaked out about the wing to canopy joint later on.

Fletch

Coming along nicely. I like how the wing joins the canopy and the way Tristar did it will ensure that the wing will sit straight.

Also make sure you use the correct landing gear struts. Parts F-1 and F-2 are for use when the Storch is sitting on the ground and F-3 and F-4 for use when the Storch is in the air.

He He He, and a plane is born!
I am at the moment working on a plane myself, but I have done far too little for pictures.

It is looking good, keep working the magic!
