  1. I got this kit last week, and I couldn't resist opening it up to sniff the styrene. I'm going to take this one slow, as a fill-in when I've got things drying on my George builds - or as a mojo enhancer when I get bogged down. This will be a strictly OOB build, too. At this point, I plan on building it buttoned up - though ungainly, I find the lines of this plane pleasing. First impressions: Despite the lack of exterior rivet detail, despite the molding of exterior surfaces in clear plastic - it's a beautiful kit. The molded-in details are in a word, crisp. What parts I have put together fit like a glove. The instruction booklet is comprehensive. The only improvement I can recommend as I start is that I wish the color photos of completed assemblies were a little larger. At the bottom of each page is a legend on paint colors used in the steps for that page. No flipping back to the front to look at color callouts! I've given the fuselage halves a coat of Mr. Surfacer 1500 black (new to me, but highly recommended). I didn't really see ejector pin marks until I primed - another disadvantage of clear plastic and old eyes. Here we go... I poted this on another thread, but it's important! Do NOT use snips to remove this sprue attachment point! Notice the ejector pin marks. On mine, they are raised. Some forethought will be required to prevent tail sitting. I've looked at every conceivable place to add weight (as far forward as possible). Before my dentist retired, he gave me bags of sheet lead from used dental x-ray film. They're very good for filling small oddly shaped crevices, like the back side of the supercharger. More weight added to the Mk 103 ammo chutes. lead shot and J-B weld. I would recommend using a fuselage half to set the proper angle on the rear cockpit bulkhead. A detail shot of the fuel compartment bulkhead. I have yet to do any detailing. And the nose gear bay with a coat of RLM 02 I gave the IP a coat of Mr. Surfacer and applied the decal once dry. I opted to use the single decal for the entire panel. This decal was thick! It took several coats of Microsol to finally get it to settle in. I would recommend cutting off the four red switches at the bottom and applying them separately. Otherwise, that single decal will have to traverse two 90 degree bends. I couldn't get that part to line up properly.. That's all for today.
  2. Work in progress for one of the mags - great kit - lots of detail - slow build due to complexity. Lots of fun though! Cockpit, fuel tank bay and rear engine: Fuselage buttoned up - I really hate working with large chunks of clear plastic: Wings and tail parts all done as well - so should have a complete airframe over next few days.

  4. Hi all, Over the last 10 days, me and my friend François have been busy doing a quick build of the Do-335 Pfeil by HK Models. It is a late test shot we built for TMN. Here is a photo of it, a link and a little cartoon I made. I hope you like it! Nic http://www.themodellingnews.com/2014/09/full-build-of-hk-models-do335-pfeil-in.html#more
