Good Evening My Friends,

first of all thank you Paul for organizing another, exciting GB.

Not sure where to start, it's all Harvie's fault :), anyways this kit has been sitting on my shelf for quite some time and I was looking for reasons why to not build it. Then HpH Fagot appeared and there is no reason to dwell on shrinking pile of resin.

I started on Monday and spend 11 hours by cleaning the molds. No warping detected so far, but the flash is very heavy and partially damaged fine surface detail. The prove are fuel tanks that are basically useless, full of bubbles and cracks. I will go without them with adding some extra detail at the lower wing anchoring points. I am not going to use much of an aftermarket trinkets , just a set of Master barrels.

This is not a Mr. Fisher's work, but better than Trumpet's offering and yet sits dead on the blueprint. It's getting late so here are some pictures.

Nice, Martin! I think this is the first time I've seen one of these kits built. Should be fun to watch!

Yeah, Harv is a strong persuader! 

 

Awesome detailing of the cockpit.  I'll be learning a few things from you Martin.

 

Did you find the right decals you're after?  PM me if not.

Thank You Brian and Kevin, I will try to finish this time :).

Hey Mike, thanks for the kind words, It would be great to help to each other in researching material and building techniques, this is my first resin kit and not exactly shake and bake style, so it may be a bumpy road.

Here is some detail of cockpit hardware.

Trumpies kit has them right out of the box. For a fistful of dollars :tumble: :punk:

 

Well, a "resin duell": Tac Air vs HPH :thumbsup:

 

 

At least your kit has balls :rofl:

Or should I say: Yankee beware, here flies a lot of lead through the air? :wicked:

Or the tail of his flight leader! 

 

I may need to consider "bullishevik" for my build too.

Yeah, better be safe with that chunk of resin at the tail, I used a regular steel shot, it's as heavy as lead without the element of toxicity.:)

and here is  rear of the cockpit
