    Hobbyboss B-24: no turret fix in sight

    The only reason People cant do something is because they never try, some through lazines, some through lack of adventure. Anybody that has a go at something and pereveres will eventually succeed if they put effort in , i only mentioned my job as a way of pointing out that i work for a living all week (i could be a bin man, its not the point) and my spare time is too precious to spend making stuff for others. no one is good at making models straight away on our first attempt, you get better the more you build practice makes perfect, waiting for someone else to do something will teach you nothing and advance your skills not one little bit, dont look for entreprenurial spirit in others, find the adventrous spirit and effort within yourself im not better than anyone, and there are far far better on here than i , but i can assure you its because they have put more effort in than me and done more and tried not because they were perfect at it immediately , or waited for others to defend them or do it for them.

    Hobbyboss B-24: no turret fix in sight

    Im a modelmaker and solved it exactly as i said it could be done, i modelmake for fun because when i get home from working on real aircraft design, no momey in the world could buy my spare time and i dont care to use it making parts for other people...

    Hobbyboss B-24: no turret fix in sight

    Problem these days is that most in the hobby are just kit assemblers and painters and not modelmakers , the clear parts are an easy fix with a little milliput to take casts, polishing of said cast and vac or plug molding, trimming and assembling said parts to whats left of the trimmed off part is tricky but good results can be had . Its not just modelmaking though, these days everyone wants an instant fix with no effort... patience for others to produce whats needed or effort yourself is the only answer, bemoaning the fact that others havent done what you wont or cant but need is a strange show indeed..

    1:24 Trumpeter Ju87 D5 fuselage length

    Because some people misunderstand things or mis measure things and its quite the best approach to take everyones opinion with a pinch of salt until i can see visual proof for myself, im aware of what a stuka should measure lengthwise, both a b model and d/g model etc but there have already been misunderstanding here with nose length which isnt in question, in my earlier post on this thread i made a feature of saying im happy to beshown ive missed something and that the op may well be correct but want to see vidual,proof, not someonene throwing dimensions around who initially thought thekit was scaled wrong and didnt suffer a dimensional error...

    1:24 Trumpeter Ju87 D5 fuselage length

    I have one of them, the other is not at my local shop yet so will indeed when i can...….BUT the onus isn't on me as a reader of the post to prove it, the onus is on the OP to offer evidence of his assertions before accusing things of being incorrect …

    1:24 Trumpeter Ju87 D5 fuselage length

    still no useable evidence at all that the trumpeter kit is wrong...…. the fuselage from the point of the wing TE to the point of the tail strut centre , should be the same on both kits, the photographs we have had so far are neither use nor ornament.....

    1:24 Trumpeter Ju87 D5 fuselage length

    Not wanting ro be antagonistic here but no proof of this fuselage being 3cm too long has been given,, theres a photo above that shows idont know what,..? And then everybody seems to be agreeing that the kit is wrong... have i missed something(entirely possible)? can someone show me a photo of the Airfix 24th Stuka next to this Trumpeter kit please ( regardless of mark, they are the same from the wing root back ... and this is where the supposed problem lies...?)
  8. They make nice kits and i enjoy building them and going off past form i look forward to building their fgr2 in 2022, 2 weeks after Tamiya or WNW have posted images of their fgr2 that has more detail........;)

    You need to buy yorself a good quality rc tapered propellor reamer, its invaluable for holes and multiple windows in vacforms like this

    Using T Cut for 2 mins followed by a bit of toothpaste it takes about 4 minutes to get the front turret crystal clear, even the join isnt that visible

    This is kind of what i expected and the person that posted the silly overlay image has got it completely wrong as most do when overlaying images over images, even going on to se he was categorically correct in his mistaken assumption....

    Hobby Boss 1/32 B-24J - Initial Observations

    Your image categorically shows that the kit wing is 50% thicker than it should be (at 40% chord, not 30 for max thickness as the real aircraft ) ... is that definately the case ? Does that 50% extra thickness run all the way to the tip?
