At the moment this build stalled due to very bad fit issues regarding the GT-resin seamless intakes. I don't know what's wrong with these, but i can't get a proper fit onto the fuselage. All thing's together, cast quality,  fit issues and the price makes that this was a very bad decision to use these :notworking:

Back to basic's, i will need a new spare fuselage, iff i can get one and go with the kit part's, keeping the bad intakes in mind, i will get a solution for that. 

 

For now, i have also the GT-resin burner can's which are also not quit crisp. Poor cast with lot's of flaws so these will be in observation mode, when i need them, i will see. I still have the Eduard update set for the exhaust's so no harm will be done here.

 

Sorry guy's, but no GT-resin stuff for me anymore

Danny, when in need of parts for Tamiya kits I use these guys here in the UK, costs are reasonable, you just email them the form and they get back to you with a quote for the price of the part. They haven't failed to get me a part I needed yet, they've also had to special order parts for one of the Tamiya 1/32 Zeros for me in the past.

Time for a little update on this bird. :popcorn:

 

Not much has been done due to the problems i have with the GT-resin seamless intakes. It's not my habit to break down the manufacturer in public due to some errors that where made, and yes, in this case i made some. :innocent: 

It's obvious that there are some issues regarding a proper fit onto the fuselage, in this case the alignment of both intakes so they are in a equal position to each other. I glued them nice into their place to get a smooth surface transition from the kit fuselage to the resin intakes. That's the way it should been done, and i did both side according the same working order. My mistake, yes, i glued them to fast, without a proper dry-fit to see if the alignment was equal. The mistake became very obvious from the moment i dry-fitted the splitter plates.

 

Transition of the resin intakes, the only thing i sanded was the ca glue residue.

I knew that the panel lines didn't line up with each-other, but that's no real problem. At this moment, no harm done, everything looked real good.

 

Until i dry-fitted the splitter plates.

 

Left one

Right one

Big error, and to be honest, even if i did a dry-fit and seen the problem, it would be not so easy to fix this.

 

Result is that the kit's fuselage is FUBAR and that a new one is on it's way.

 

Ok, back to real time now.

 

Like i said, the new fuselage is on it's way, so time to start the cockpit. This time, better said again, i will use Eduard colored pe and Eduard Brassin ejection seat's like i did with the Starfighter.

A nice add-on are these stencil pe sheet's for stenciling the seat cushion

Like i said, not much but it's a start. Stay tuned for more.

First step's are made, starting with the Mk.82 bomb's. Cleaning and glueing.

Question here, is it necessary to place all bomb's on the TER's and MER's or can it be done with the number provided in the kit??

Also TER's and MER's are assembled.

TER's are modified with some scratch extra's.

Thank's my friend for the info regarding the Brassin part's :speak_cool:

 

At the moment i'm still busy to do some other stuff. Restoring a APH flight helmet is among one of those. So modeling isn't at the moment the number one priority. But, once i'm done with some other projects i will return.

Danny, nice work on the TERs and sorry to read about your intake woes.

 

Regarding the TERs, you may want to drill a hole in the back, very simple thing to do and improved the overall realistic look.

 

Cheers,

 

Marcel
