Bill_S Posted January 4, 2019 Share Posted January 4, 2019 I started this WIP over on LSP; it's only right that I share it with my other family... A shot of the box. My first impression: this kit is very near Wingnut Wings caliber. I do, however, find myself cleaning up a lot of parts - particularly at the parting lines. Only four sprues, but two of them are very busy. Acetate film for the windscreen (I've read that it's pre-cut) and a smal PE fret are included as well. The instruction manual is very good - if it gave other than generic paint callouts (ie. "medium blue"), I would rate it as excellent. Cockpit framing. Some very slight ejector pin marks, but they'll be fully covered. I had to drill holes for bracing wires. The first mistake I've noted: ears are missing at the base of the center vertical on one side. Out with the Waldron punch (0.028 inches) and some styrene sheet. A little trimming and some cement, and we're good to go. Various Tamiya tans as an undercoat... Then a heavy coat of Windsor & Newton burnt sienna An hour or so later, the excess is removed with a cotton bud. 12 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
