    The OV-10 kits are a really nice kit they have some issues with flash but you are right the T-28 is really nice kit

    Madelf75 reacted to 109ace in Hobbyboss B-24: no turret fix in sight   
    Has anybody actually seen the replacement turrets? will they be re-engineered to eliminate the seam line running over the top and sides? Or will they just be addressing the issue of frosted plastic and repop them with clear plastic?  On another note, I am averaging about three messages a week from modelers who see my 1/48 th scale B-24 seamless replacement turrets for the monogram kits and ask if I plan on doing anything about this 1/32 scale turret issue. Myt answer is the same to all of them. I had two people offer to send me their turrets for me to create replacements. They both and their commitments went missing. I'm not investing $250 plus in a kit just to cob the turrets from. My offer stands. Contact me in a PM if you would like to have the first set of vac/resin seamless replacement turrets. You will get your original crappy turrts back. My replacements for the Monogram are one of my hottest sellers. ( over 300 sets sold) I offer these in two sets. One for Emerson front, with Consolidated rear birds, and one set with two Consildated turrets for those with that front and rear configuration.

    Nice trick .I use to do something like that when I was doing body work but I would lay the guide coat down after I primer filled .I can see how this would really work 
    Thanks

    No pressure then... 
     
    Trying to get the basic kit review finished for LSP at the moment - it's becoming quite expansive!
     
    I was planning to do a tweaks list as part of it - but if I wait until we've discovered most of them it'll be delayed by some time I reckon. So, what's in the box, with thoughts I have to date will be what you get.
     
    Am I still pleased to see a 1:32 Liberator? I am indeed.
     
    Does it have issues? Yes.
     
    Are they fixable? Yes, with a little modelling work I think most are...
     
    Did I waste my money purchasing two? Nope - still a happy bunny 
     
    Model on LSP dudes!

    Make it the 'LSP Fix' - *if* we manage to fix it! 
     
    Busy putting stickers on a Spitfire again - so not sure if there will be any more on the Lib today.
     
    I *do* want to get this done and dusted as soon as I can - maybe over the next week - as I need to keep momentum/interest going...

    This profile was printed out on to paper and this glued to the surface of a sheet of 2mm thick styrene, using Photo Mount spray.
     
    Meanwhile - the root web in the wing was cut to allow it to bend - this was done very roughly with a cutting disc in my modelling dril, and the help of some side-cutters:
     

     
    The sheet styrene profle was cut out and smoothed roughly to shape - remember, this is a prototype/test piece - and spot glued to the moulded in wing web at the leading edge.
     
    On the final construction this former will be glued to the other side of the moulded web, i.e. behind in this view, but outside easiest whilst I get the shapes tweaked.
     
    So - glued and lined-up at the leading edge - upper wing profile as kit:
     

     
    And, once dry with the upper surface of the wing pushed down to conform to the sheet plastic 'former':
     

     

     
    A little more tweaking - the rear of the upper wing surface should be just a tiny bit concave - but considering first go I'm reasonably happy this will work.
     
    Yes - the nacelle angle has moved relative to the root section - but that's because the single former at the root has induced a twist in the wing - will be corrected when other formers in place along wing.
     
    Yes - material will need to be removed along the rear wing spar webs as moulded - and, yes, the very rear of the wing adopts correct angle when the airoil former pressed fully home - tape not doing a particularly good job of holding everything together! 
     
    Need a break from computer now - but may do some more later.
