Mirek,

 

I have one question regarding the internal bulkheads and generaly all other pieces attached to the resin sheet.
Are they at the right thickness as I remove them from the sheet or do I have to grind them on sandpaper to reduce the thickness.

Regards.

They are OK as they are.

 

I've never seen a resin kit so well designed and made.

So it can't possibly be this one, then?

ummm no :)

 

I got mine yesterday and my head is still spinning reading the CD (yes the CD) instruction manual. I was thinking of

throwing my hat into this GB but I already have a Dora I'm busy with and we should actualy see Dekenba make

some progress first

HI!

 

The best and the simplest way is  to grind them on sandpaper to reduce the thickness.

Please don't hold back! Get your thread started and the Walrus out of the box.

 

The more the merrier, you can never have too many builds of this beauty going on.

OK, I'm cracking on with this now.

 

Slight problem is a small crack on the canopy. However, a quick e-mail to HPH was answered within an hour with the promise of sending a replacement immediately.

 

That's excellent service that the big players like Tamiya & Hasegawa just can't match and one of the reasons I like buying from the likes of HPH, MDC, PCM, etc.

 

I'm cleaning up the fuselage first. It's an excellent moulding, the only real problem was removing the pour stubs from the very front of the fuselage. I've carefully sawn them off. The join is not perfect, but looking at the instructions - which, superbly,  are pictures of the actual model in construction - shows a little bit of filler in that area, so I'm following the instructions to the letter!

 

I'm just getting the fuselage halves exactly the right size, as they are slightly too big because of the resin lip on the edge. I'm also putting a slight angle on the bottom of the hull joins, so that they meet at 90 degree. They don't quite at the moment because of  the slight V shape.

 

I'll post some pictures this evening.
