  1. Thanks for the answer, good to know! Many Thanks! Stefan
  2. The first parts of the cockpit glued together; I glued the rear shelf and the side panels together, the clear instrument panel are just added (not glued) for a bit more stability; Test fit of the engine and the propeller shaft and cooler; More to come soon! Cheers! Stefan
  3. Hi all! In this kit the only option for the wheels was plasic hubs with vinyl tires, which I HATE! I bought a new set of resin wheels from HAD; Cleaned up; The instrument hatch glued; The wings are glued on, the fit was so-so, some sanding and fettling was needed to get an acceptable join; The exhaust ring added;
  4. Many thanks for that exhaustive tweak-list, Thierry! It´s just what I need to build my Ju87B Stuka! I have the big nose-correction set with spats and prop, but I have one further question; Can I use the spats from Hasegawa´s G (considering a spatless machine) on Trumpeters B? Cheers! Stefan
  5. Perfect! This will be very handy when I tackle this wonderful kit! Many Thanks for your Work, Thierry! Cheers! Stefan
  6. Another just started kit for the NAVY; ...and this of course; Cheers! Stefan
  7. A BIG Thanks to all of you! Problem is I´m an old Humbrol fart so I need to "translate" it to something I can understand as Humbrol, Colorcoates or Xtracolor. I figured out it must be Gunze Colors as they are so common in all kits from that part of the world. But I think I have it nailed by now. I´m going to use the old White Ensign Colorcoates WWII IJN/IJA colors. Once again Thanks for your help! Cheers! Stefan
  8. I had the engine already partly built up and the next step was all the small exhaust pipes. The short ones were already molded in the back plate, but the 9 longer ones had to be glued one by one. It looked as a daunting task, HOW would i get these in place? it looked very hard to do, but the pieces just snapped in place! Incredible engineering and fit! The gearbox and the magneto pack glued to the front of the engine (faced to the rear).
  9. Such a little gem you have there, beautiful build! ...and many thanks for the assembky tips on the engine mount/cowls! I´m exactly at that stage on my build and was scratching my head on how to do it! Many Thanks! Stefan
  10. The metal nose cone filled with more weight…. Engine, cockpit, nose wheel well, and nose cone glued to the right fuselage side… I started gluing the long fuselage halves from the tail and worked my way forward until I had it completely glued. The fuselage went together nicely, but I got a few minor gaps, I filled them with plasticard strips….
  11. As usual, the build starts in the cockpit…. First I have to choose which seat to use, the one without any straps or the one with the straps molded in? I choose the ”strapped” seat, It looks quite good, actually, almost as good as a resin seat. The cockpit side panels built up… The cockpit floor… The engine started…. The Turbo/Compressor stage
  12. Oh, yes. Maru! Update coming soon.... Stefan
  13. A Happy New Year 2021 to all!
