Well third post in as many days!! I managed to assemble the fuselage halves succesfully but noticed a bit of a gap behind the pilots seat, bar that all well and good.

I then attached the various Airwaves p/e wing fold parts... the ones that went on the outer wing sections were a major struggle, in hindsight and after attaching the inner wing section p/e parts recessed I believe the kit recessed detail on the fold ends should be removed so the p/e parts can be set recessed... but this is not explained in the poor instructions sheets. So they tend to look a bit ugly... hense I have used some liquid putty to try and make them more presentable... ugh...

I made up a large amount of Milliput (lucky I have other kits I can use leftover Milliput on) to fill where the p/e wheel well detail leaves gaps as well as the various wing fold sections and the fuselage join itself. I also put some on the nose of the fuselage to be sculptured later to represent the missing intakes.. not on the Airfix kit.

That's all for now!!

Simon

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.
