Hey Guys!

I missed out five previous GBs, no drama I never finish anything anyways....However,  this time it worked out very well. I have been planning to build S-99 for a while and natural choice of marking is the red-nose in service of the Czechoslovak Air Police. With civilian immatriculation OK-BYD.

Everyone wanders , (Wolf for example) why didn't they use Storch instead, well it's always good to pack some heavy arguments when you enforcing the law :).

Here is the obligatory start up picture, and yes I am doing this on my kitchen table :)

 

Edit: there is an Eduard exterior set on the way as well

Thank You Richard, there is definitely something different about them.

I wasn't exactly sure about how to tackle the gear bays , so after a short hesitation I decided to go to town and cut even deeper. I opened the top wings according to the factory drawings, and deepened the kit bulges. There will be a small cutout on the side of them, but that will come after my daughters bedtime :)

Is that an issue with their 109 kits or just their Gustav or something else completely?

Hi Shaka , thank you for stopping by. The part of the fuselage just in front of the canopy is too short, approximately 3 mm. They fixed that with the arrival of the new F4, however all hasegawa's 109g and on suffers the same problem. In matter of fact 1/48 models are affected as well. There are few more hiccups along the road, but nothing major. I will try to cover as much as I feel like :) :innocent:

Thank You for your kind words Harvey, gentleman as always. Funny I just cut off the tip of my left index finger while wrapping your Christmas Ruffle price, magical experience LOL  :rofl:

In past 30 minutes I was playing with the wing bulges, that are slightly too bulgeous .The lip on the perimeter was too thick and it was missing the prominent cut-out. So I thin it with x-act knife and as of now they are drying on the wings :)

Thank You Maru :), I just noticed an interesting coincidence, Czech Police helicopter is carrying OK-BYD and Slovak Police Helicopter is also carrying OM-BYD....Cool  :punk:
