  4. To better fold the part, it is necessary to hold the ruler along the fold line, pressing lightly with the blunt side of the knife or a toothpick so as not to damage the paper surface. Better to do it from the wrong side of the part;
  5. Keep your fingers clean and be sure to use wipes to wipe your hands, because hands may get dirty in the process;
  6. wind up cylindrical parts before gluing onto a round object of a suitable diameter, this will give them shape;
  7. Before gluing it is necessary to paint the ends of the part. White crop lines spoil the overall look of the model. To paint the ends, use watercolors or gouache paints. After selecting the desired color, apply them in a thin layer, then allow the paint to dry. About markers better to forget;
  8. Take your time with gluing. First, cut out the part, paint it from the end, wait for the paint to dry, assemble the part. Attach it to the place where it should be to make sure everything is done correctly. And only then stick. Do not forget to let the glue dry.

A bit of history

Do 17 German twin-engine medium bomber

Dornier Do 17 (him. Dornier Do 17) - German twin-engine medium bomber of the company Dornier since the Second World War. He was one of the main bomber Luftwaffe. Produced from 1937 to 1940.

The first experienced Do 17 V1 was first lifted into the air on November 23, 1934, by Egon Fath, a test pilot of the Dornier company, flyugkapitan. On this plane were installed twelve-cylinder engines BMW V1 7.3 with 750 hp each, By the end of spring of 1935 flight tests of the Do 17 V2 prototypes with BMW V1 6.3 engines with 660 hp each took place. and the Do 17 V3 with the Hispano-Suiza engines, which were later replaced due to unreliability in the BMW V1 7.3. During the tests, the aircraft showed a speed of about 330 km / h. All three aircraft in 1935 were transferred to the Lufthansa for testing.

After the trial regular flights conducted from October 8 to November 7, it was concluded that it is not suitable for practical use due to insufficient passenger capacity and inconvenience of landing-disembarking (very narrow fuselage). Experienced aircraft were returned to the company. After a visit to the factory "Dornier" in Leventhal, a former employee of the company, flyugkapitan Robert Untiht (Untucht), who served as a pilot in the Lufthansa, and along with the communications officer between the airline and the Ministry of Aviation (RLM), became interested in RLM. The technical department of RLM proposed the Dornier company to launch the fourth experienced aircraft (V4) with minimal modifications to the combat aircraft.

At the end of the summer of 1935Do17 V4 appeared, which differed from its predecessors outwardly only by embedding windows and installing separated feathering to prevent yaw. Internal changes included the installation of the compartment behind the first wing spar. Compared with the transport options, the Do 17 V4 had a shorter length - it was reduced from 17.7 m to 17.15 m, the engines are the same - the BMW V1. In the fall of 1935, the V6, similar to the V4, and the V5 with the Hispano-Suiza engines — 12 Ybrs, with a ground power of 775 hp — began testing. and 860 hp. at an altitude of 4000 m. With these engines, the V5 reached a speed of 389 km / h. Defensive armament was absent. Do 17 V7 was already armed with one 7.9-mm MG 15 machine gun back on a mobile unit in a blister on the fuselage. Fire from it led the radio operator. The prototype also received a rounded, glazed nose. The prototype was demonstrated in Bückeberg in October 1935. In July 1937 Do 17 V8, participating in an international competition of military aircraft in Zurich, won the "Circle of the Alps" race.
