Some work was done on this recent release on Friday. A dry fit of major components did show that the 'usual' dry fitting and correcting would be required. With some minor sanding the major cockpit components fitted quite well and I was rather impressed with their break down. Some card, soldering wire and fine brass wire was used to either add some detail or improve on what the kit provided.
This view of the port show the three-part assembly that represents and framed in (rather well) the main gear wells.
Thought a intake cover will be used on this model, the intake assembly will fit well with some work. It does included the light that is located in the splitter plate.
I am not familiar with the Bilek name. I was told this weekend that this is perhaps their first 1/48 scale kit. If so, well done and I will certainly be looking for their futures releases.
Thanks for dropping by.
