Louis Hubert shows off some great skill assembling the Hi-Tech Voisin 10 LAR Night Bomber in 1/48 scale, and here is a bit of a walkthrough of the build.

Thank you.Fishing wire for the wing. The others are plastic stretched.
The flat ones are evergreen plastic sheets cut into strips.

Interesting that I was aware of the recoil-less small canon but not the aircraft itself!

Amazing work, truly!

May I ask for more information on how you made your T handle fire extinguisher? Almost every one of my 1/35th military US vehicles is missing its' Pyrene fire extinguisher.

Thank you!

T handle fire extinguisher is two pieces of plastic, one stretched, the other flat glued together. The shape of the flat part is made with the scalpel, the ends rounded with the sandpaper (if I remember correctly ).

Regards.
