If you are busy with your orbital sander, just keep it going on these rivets, more appropriate on a steam locomotive than on a racing thoroughbred IMHO...
Gotta say, although I have a few Marsh Models in the stash, as I like their choice of subjects, I am not really impressed by their finesse. I really expected this one to show some progress compared to the others, but it does not look like it ...
Okay... you asked for it... in for a penny...
In the end, I couldn’t leave it alone
Beyond now committing to remove and refine/replace(?) the over-scale body rivets as well, further sessions with sanding sticks and plenty of water to keep the resin dust at bay, have coaxed the wings into far more refined and sharper relief.
The chin air scoop is very crude on the model so will have to go
Mind you, I’ll have to check my references as this scoop only appears in some of the reference shots
Now you see it..
now you don’t
In fact there are quite a few minor differences, not only between the 3 S5s but also between the same aircraft at different stages of their continual development
I have to admit, my initial impressions of this kit have been tempered somewhat. That said, I think/hope I’m going to enjoy (rather than endure) the rest of the journey
