Recommended Posts

I’ve got the Aires resin and...

Already i need some help :excl:  I’ve seen several builds with the resin wheel wells and they look really sweet. I haven’t found one that describes what it takes to get the wing to close up though :unsure:. Could anyone who’s done this drop a few notes in here about how best to do this? Here’s what i have so far...

can’t be much thinner without going through the resin base

Hi, Have you sanded the area on the 2 wing haves as well? To be honest when I built the F-100D I used Eduard parts to detail the kit wing wheel bays as there did not seem to be a lot of difference. I did use the Aires resin for the nose wheel bay, main wheel bay, cockpit etc.

No, I haven’t sanded them yet. Can definitely try that to cut down the gap some. Maybe then there’s enough that can come off the top of the bay itself to fit.

Well I think this is the best it can be. I sanded the wing surface, and trimmed down the sides of the resin bits. Lost a tad of detail but probably not noticeable. I managed to save 2 hydraulic lines along the side wall so those will provide the extent of the detail on the wall.
