  1. 1/72 DH Hornet F3

    Steve, You are right, I check and only see one side having the actuator, look like it is really having one up & one down, thanks for pointing that out to me. to be reverse back later.

    Rabbit Leader, Thanks for the tips, it will be consider when I address it later.. Anyway, The horizontal stabilizers are identically molded, that's mean the actuator will be facing the same side when assembled, So I cut out one of it and make one with epoxy putty.. now both will face downward with assemble. Also added metal pin for strengthening the joint later.

    Robert, Yup that's the plan, I will address the wing joint issue after I attached the nacelle to wing,.. And then the bloody canopy don't fit, I will remove some materials from where the windscreen sit and may be add some shims too..to be addressed later.

    Hey Guys, Progress... Assembled the fuselage, the resin gun ports fit batter than expected, also spent shell ejector ports are being drilled out. Nacelles not too much of an issue. The wing is butt jointed , so I added the plastic strips as an anchor for the join, I hope this will work The resin radiator is too narrow, so I added a strip of plastic shim, and wing will be assemble next.. More later..

    Guys, Thanks for the interest, I have a test build with the fuel tanks, this is not gonna be an easy build, first of all there is no locating pins to aid the assemble, and flashes are on the mating surface that need to be clean, Joint is not pretty, putty is needed .. More to come...
