nmayhew Posted December 8, 2010 Author Share Posted December 8, 2010 (edited) hi i got the fuselage together, with the aid of my various clamps i was careful not to use superglue AND misalign the pieces, like i did last time as you probably know, the pins / holes on the kit pieces are woefully small, verging on the non-existent, and you should view it as a good limited run kit really - at least that way you know what to expect everything lines up...Tamiya extra fine cement just touched over the join and capillary action takes care of the rest - that's the beauty of using clamps i glued the pieces from tail / behind the cockpit first, and worked my way forward from there the cocktail stick is not a hangover from a dinner party sadly , but in place to keep the gap between the cockpit instrument panel and the top of the gun deck - for some reason it didn't line up straight on its own no drama, as long as you dry fit and check before you apply the glue! in the 2 pics above you can see the large gap still present at the nose don't be worried if you have this -only minimal force is required to bring them together i am leaving mine "open" whilst i work out what i am going to do with the engine. more in a mo Edited December 8, 2010 by nmayhew Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
