I would like to enter the gb with the Hendon 190 A8 U1
I first saw it at St Athan in '87 when on my driving course ( I have piccies of it with engine running somewhere).

I will be using wings and bits from the Eduard A5

Welcome to the GB.
Great choice and nice to see someone doing a two-seater.
Remember, this conversion is one of the prizes so you better make a good job of it. :wicked:

Remember seeing that one at St Athan also whilst on an ATC camp in 88. The military museum in Jo'burg South Africa has one also.

The conversion was made for the tamiya A8 so the wings and fuselage had to be modified.

That's coming together nice and quick.
How is the fit of the resin fuselage to the kit wings?

The 2 seat 190 is a good looking aircraft with a pit thats large enough to see the detail . Hope the canopy is nice and clear.

Ouch, that hurt seeing that nice Eduard kit being cut up! Interesting build though.

I would be interested to see if there were any fit problems with the tamiya kit as this requiring a lot of shims around the wing .
The wing underside will need 1mm taken off to fit aft of the cockpit but the 'firewall' needs nearly 2 mm shimming after cleanup, not the crispest moulding there.
I should have cut right back to the cockpit and used the eduard front.
On taking a look at the the history of the S, it would be possible to convert the single seater with fewer problems than making the resin fit,
as the trainers were converted fighters , the work done in Poland.

As tank152 said , that has hurt cutting up that nice Eduard kit.

It's not the first Eduard kit to be lost in this GB and it may not be the last!!! :whip:

Well, butchering has been quite brutal, if I was to do this again, I would imediately cut and chuck most of the resin.
I would just keep the heritage upper cockpit area.
I cannot speak for the tamiya kit for which this was designed, but there are fit problems for the eduard.

chopped some more with the eduard forward panels grafted to the resin

The wings are on and it, ready for paint - camera charging at the moment.
I may even finish this one.

Fit problems or not, you've done a excellent job of crafting the 2 together. It must have taken a lot of will power to keep on going with this ine?

I'm glad this one is still going, as I'm hoping to see it finished.

Steve

p.s. Is there a reason you have used the Eduard kit and not the Tamiya?

I had the eduard already.
If i knew about the fit probs ,I would have butchered the resin along the panel line just below the cockpit from just aft of the windscreen back to the tail.
99.9% of fit problems solved.
I have read, however , that the tammy kit is no better a fit than the eduard, and then there is the price of tamiya kits!

I have decided to do the 190 as it appeared in the 70's before its repaint.
