In order to get the wings aligned, I decided to try and remove the cover over the gears. It went well, without anything breaking. With some luck I can glue the wings in the right position and have the mechanism work as it should.
I also found the plaque for the stand, and started painting it. I touched up the grey fields on the stand somewhat.
Next I’ll start painting the letters on the plaque, and prepare the ship for some weathering.
