Gaspatch 1/48 Hs123


Recommended Posts

Gazzas build has stirred me out of ambivalence and back onto the forum. I started this a little while ago so I will be adding a few photos at a time. At the start I must commend Gaspatch for the fidelity and engineering of this kit. The quality of the instructions is excellent and the plastic, whilst being of the softer variety, is well detailed and easy to use.

Here is the obligatory box top shot, along with the chosen scheme and some AM I picked up along the way.

Regards,

Kent

Welcome back,

The build moved forward quite rapidly, even if deviating slightly from the instructions. The level of detail from OOB is very good but I did choose to add some Eduard PE, Eduard steel seat belts and a Yahu IP. Paints are Aeromaster Warbirds enamel RLM02 and some Tamiya base colours. Sealed and then washed with AKI enamel washes. Final weathering was Fabre Castell water colour pencils, some simple lead pencil and the fuselage was sealed.

Thanks for looking,

Kent

Welcome back,

Many thanks for the positive feedback and encouragement. So moving forward, the IP shroud was affixed and the gun covers are just dry fit. Again the joins are great, except where the human factor is introduced and a misalignment occurs as in the shroud. The engine was painted and lightly washed and weathered. There are still some PE ignition wires and parts to go on. The air intake looked sloppy, so I cut it off and remade it using some 0.5mm card, glued and shaped accordingly. The cockpit opening has been masked and sealed with liquid mask to keep out the dust. There are some panel lines that GP has not included on the fuselage according to plans, so these have been measured, marked and scribed on one side (the other side gets done tomorrow). The luggage door on the upper canopy is 2mm too long and would sit astride the panel line behind it so it was also filled, rescribed and now sits better. I have also reinstated the panel lines under the fixed IP shroud and added a couple on the forward fuselage.

Thats up to date so thanks for looking.

Kent
