Just got one resin model finished, the Arado E-377 Mistel bomb. So it's time to start another one
No props, I stay with jets The first jet of the world, to be correct: Ernst Heinkels He-178.
Kit is made by Planet models from Czech. Box image:
A fistful of parts in cream colored resin. Nice casting, no bubbles. Fuselage halfes, one-piece wings, elevators, rudder, some interior bits, wheels. UC is provided in white metal. A small decal sheet, just the "Heinkel" writiing. Two vac canopies. Two pages of instructions:
First things first - building the cockpit, as usual.
Not a lot of parts here. Also not a lot of details... Added some styrene as lower side consoles, a rear bulkhead and a new floor. Glued the jet pipe and tail wheel bay into place.
IP needs some paint to bring out the details.
The seat is nothing to write home about. Too small. Quarterscale only... I have to look into the bit box for a better one.
Thats it for now.
