Response to That's a good looking Zeke

With the compliments

It turned out much better then I had expected from this old Hasegawa kit - it's no match for the new Airfix Zero or the modern Hasegawa tooling, but I like it, it has IMHO one big advantage over the other kits and that is that it has no engraved panel lines - it has rivets which can be toned down by sanding and this gives me a much better canvas to work on - if it wasn't for the basic and occasional wrong detail, I would jump up for another classic Hase build - now I guess I have to start with one of the more modern toolings

Thanks for dropping by Matt, appreciated

Just like the perfect woman doesn't exist, I will never build a perfect model.

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 WWI Aircraft Kits.

  1. This Group Build will run until 31 December, 2011.

  2. Build as many kits as you like.

  3. Conversions, aftermarket and scratchbuilding are all permitted.

  4. Any markings are acceptable.

  5. 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.
