I hope to have pictures out this weekend for everyone to look at. You are correct in that the CE set was a big improvement over the kit, and my fix is similar but goes much more in depth. First my parts fit together correctly, and the finished assemblies fit the model openings. The wind screen has framework cast in place for strength and ease of assembly, and I provide a dash/ coaming deck that fits into the front windscreen. The modification to the fuselage is almost identical to the CE kit in that part of the front fuselage has to be removed to get the shape that Trumpy missed.
Hey Darren, what’s a Lightning??
LOL..................Just kidding. IT is a good suggestion as I know the kit is all screwed up from reading the reviews, maybe down the road a bit. The Phantom line looks like a 2-3 year project to cover all of the C/D Weasels, Recces, Foreign operator upgrades, and British.....yes I said British. I will be a lucky to finish the F-15 K and SG sets and the rest of the Thud stuff before we move to Charleston next spring. Lots of really neat stuff planned for you guys, and gals.
Been a busy week and in the shop this weekend. Everyone have a great evening,
Many Thanks, Gary
