Continuing to glue and support with pieces of sprues. This is impossible this way for most of you, serious modellers, but as I ignore the underside, it is all right for me... ???

that is an interesting method  ;) you are right, it makes it possible to strengthen the things from below

Thanks!
And this is less shocking with a few drops of paint making the extra parts and "normal" parts look like each others:

Painting the main side now, like a normal (solid) model:

The model is finished! The first vacform of all my life! Almost a success (according to my poor standards)!

That really finished up nice, Tophe!

It has a very fast, sleek look, like a racing plane.

Well done, mon ami!

In fact, the cockpit is flat, like on a few racer prototypes of the 1930s...

I tend to treat vacforms as a scratch build project, good luck with this on Tophe, it's looking good so far.

Sorry, there will be nothing further for me: my models have no landing gear, no roundels, no engine exhausts, seldom propellers... ??? ;)
