Hi, I have delved into my stash of models and pulled out a Revell Tornado GR4 which I bought some time ago. I have the Aries resin wheel bays for this kit and they are certainly an improvement on the kit ones. However the issue I have is that I cannot seem to get them to fit. The instructions are basic and indicate that nothing needs removing. Has anyone else encountered this? Failing a solution for using the Aries resin I have the Eduard etched brass set for the kit but I would rather use the former. Kind regards Andy
For this GB I will be doing something a little bit different for me, I’ll be building two identical models! By pure chance on evilbay I came across 2 1/48th OEZ Su-7’s for about $10 US! One model was missing the canopies and decals, but the kind sole threw in a VacForm aftermarket one. This wasn’t really needed as the kit supplies both open and closed canopy sets. So I intend to build a Czech Air Force and Soviet Su-7BKL, though right towards the end of their lives they were still frontline attack aircraft in the early 80’s (they were still some in service in the very early 90’s!). The model/s are really nice and have been used by Eduard with extra bits added (that said I now have 2 of the Limited Edition Su-17/22M3’s in the stash with full AM accessories as well!!!). The instructions are……interesting!! Will be using a set from the Eduard Su-7. Because they were so cheap I’ll be throwing heaps of AM stuff, this is just some of the stuff, still need more! So far; Eduard – Internal & External sets, BKL (BMK not needed) Wheel Well Doors QuickBoost – Intake Scoops (need another set) Aries – Cockpit set Wolfpack – Engine nozzle set Pavla – Ejection set The open canopy version will have the AM cockpit set, the closed will have the Eduard added bit. Colours scheme have yet to be finalised and I may switch the Soviet one to a Polish one yet. I can’t wait for this GB!!!!
