Response to It shouldn't be that much of an undertaking
The Isra nose RWR antennas are better size-wise and perhaps shape, but have no detail, a decal being used for that. The casting on mine were a litle funky as well, but that was par for the course with their Sufa conversion. The WP parts are somewhere between the kit parts and the Isra parts sizewise, and are better cast with engraved details.
Have you seen the PWMP wheel, or is the pic clear enough to determine is accuracy? Just wondering, 'cause I got it and a new Blk 52 NLG door (forgot to mention that) from PWMP at the same time. PWMP's door is a little better than Isra's. I forgot to add the indentation in the roof of the nose wheel bay for the bigger wheel, but did remember to add the bump inside the intake. I also added the WP cockpit. The intake you see in my pics is the actual one from my aborted Isra conversion. When I test flew it, the intake came off cleanly, so I just used it again. All the antennas and resin on the intake are Isra parts. I glued 'em good. The Tamiya fuselage did not fare so well...
Have you seen the CE NSI intake that they did for their Wild Hare "XL" kit? If it weren't for a little shrinkage, it would be nice. They just assembled the kits parts, made it seemless and cast it all as one piece. The shrinkage isn't so much as to be unusable...I think. I'm gonna try to use it on a long suffering F-16A conversion if I ever get back to it.
Well thats about it, its been so long that I probably forgot how much fiddling I did to get this one where it is now. But I figure it couldn't have been too much 'cause its still in one piece.
