Converting HPH's 1/32 Tigercat into an F7F-3N


Recommended Posts

Not happy with the kit's carburator intakes, I've decided to make some new ones. Those from the kit are skinny, dont line up correctly have an ugly inner seam and are the front mesh type which i didnt want.

i did a separate tubing that meets the front part at a raised solder line for ease of painting.

so working on the wings and that nacelle assembly wont be my best souvenir as a modelling exeprience, i'd say, but it seems the price to pay to build this kit. HpH did some great parts on this kit, but also terrible shorcuts such as the engine framing assembly which could 'really' have been better designed to get an accurate alignment.

 

The oil tanks that are visible details that should pop out the well's mess, so i did more detailed 3d drawings that i'll be printing tomorrow.
