Q. Will the Amur Reaver G-10 correction work on the Revell G-6 kit??

... I mean - to convert the G-6 to a G-10 Erla ... since the G-10 Erla, G-6 and G-2/4 kits are the same basic modular moulds - I thought it might work?

Rog :)

I'd offer you your G10 back if I hadn't already bough a bunch of AM for it.

That's very considerate of you Gaz ... but really no need  ... Especially if merely fitting the corrected Erla G-10 nose from Amur Reaver to the G-6 will do the job ... I can use the leftover decals from my other G-10 kit.

I've used the AMUR Reaver G-10 Erla cowling on the Revell G-10 Erla kit as well as the AMUR Reaver G-6/AS cowling on the Revell G-6 kit.  Here are the cuts required on the Revell G-10 fuselage to accept the AMUR Reaver cowling.

Comparatively, here are the cuts on the Revell G-6 kit to accept the AMUR Reaver G-6/AS cowling.

A few more cuts on the G-6 would get you to the same place on the G-10 Erla, assuming that the rear fuselages are identical.  So I'm guessing it is do-able although I cannot confirm it.

Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts and handiwork! ... I had a feeling that it might work the same or similar ... leastways the Erla G-10 front end is pretty much all one piece, so I was mainly concerned with wings, fuse, tail etc. If I have to template a special panel and scribe (or fill one in!) I'm good for that, but scratch building parts is another story!.

Rog :)
