All the bolts, cables and wires will be added during the actual assembly of the model. There’s no point 3D printing them as they won’t look right in the end.

I may even get around to building things in real life soon.

Progress on the Camel hasn’t been static for all that time though and it is now practically complete and I’m looking towards my next project which is of a more nautical nature.  Continue reading SOPWITH CAMEL F1 (2nd Build) – HASEGAWA 1:8 (Part 3)
