I continued working on my engine hood with the closing system. To do this, I took the piano hinge to which, I removed the axle and I blew up a few passafe links from the axle so that I could put hooks.
Each half hinge is glued to the parts to be closed with epoxy glue
Then I used a thin piano wire to make a closure system.
Below the photo of the full-size aircraft to view the details to be reproduced
You can clearly see the rivets, a line of sheet metal above the hinge. So I started by drawing the sheet lines with a sharp tool to dig the surface. This line is visible at the arrow on the image below
Once all the lines had been drawn, I applied 2 coats of bodywork coating
The same open hood…
