Response to Nice neat job Steve - you are now in the prize draw.. good luck!

I used an MV products lens for the landing light. You can find them in the model RR section of the hobby shop. They're basically a little blob of clear acrylic painted silver on one side. They look nice, althugh they're not quite accurate for a retractable landing light, since they're convex, while the real light was flush with the wing surface. I would have simply used the kit part with some Bare Metal Foil on the back, but I lost it, and I happened to have an MV lens of the correct size handy.

HyperScale's Group Build Guidelines

The objective of this Group Build is to encourage as many modellers as possible to build their kits and share their progress via words and photos on this Forum.

You are welcome to post general construction tips or relevant reference information and photos to this Forum too.

This Group Build will feature Airfix, Frog and Matchbox kits.

  1. Build as many kits as you like

  2. Conversions, aftermarket and scratchbuilding are all permitted.

  3. Any markings are acceptable.

  4. Document your progress and do a write-up on your build - where did you have trouble, what improvements did you make, what markings did you choose and why? It would be GREAT if everyone would do a writeup and submit it to HyperScale as a Feature Article.
