  1. The rear cockpit shroud did not fit that well, I resorted to putty and new rivets via the UMM beading tool. Pics tell the story, It's not perfect but does match the limited run softness of the rest of the kit. 1/32 Morane Type N by The 3rd Placer, on Flickr 1/32 Morane Type N by The 3rd Placer, on Flickr 1/32 Morane Type N by The 3rd Placer, on Flickr And the the new rivets.... 1/32 Morane Type N by The 3rd Placer, on Flickr 1/32 Morane Type N by The 3rd Placer, on Flickr 1/32 Morane Type N by The 3rd Placer, on Flickr 1/32 Morane Type N by The 3rd Placer, on Flickr 1/32 Morane Type N by The 3rd Placer, on Flickr 1/32 Morane Type N by The 3rd Placer, on Flickr And some prime and paint... 1/32 Morane Type N by The 3rd Placer, on Flickr 1/32 Morane Type N by The 3rd Placer, on Flickr 1/32 Morane Type N by The 3rd Placer, on Flickr 1/32 Morane Type N by The 3rd Placer, on Flickr Ryan
  2. Drug this off the shelf of doom and completed some more work. Wings are a little chunky but the plastic is easy to work with. Here is before and after about an hour of clean up. 1/32 Morane Type N by The 3rd Placer, on Flickr And after.... 1/32 Morane Type N by The 3rd Placer, on Flickr Ryan

  4. Thanks for the input Chris!
  5. Well this thread seems to answer question #2, with a clear pic of red to the waterline. It does look like a faint white line was there at some point.
  6. I'm suspect of the painting guide for a couple of Hobby Boss kits. 1. The 1/350 Alfa class kit guide shows no red anti fouling(?) just an overall black, could this be true? 2. The 1/350 Kilo class (PLAN version) kit indicates red fouling to the water line. I have seen shots of a Russian Kilo with red up to a point but then there is a spacing to a white stripe at the water line. Would it be safe to assume the Chinese version features this layout as well and not red to the water line? Thanks for any help with this. Ryan
  7. Nice smooth primer coat, you'll get the seams sorted out.
  8. I managed to get the tail suck on, but before I did that I notched out a landing spot for the rudder horns. This way after painting and decaling they would have a nice recessed area to glue to. First up was drawing the line, I kept symmetry on each side by using a piece of tape to hold the mark a determined distance equally on both sides. Morane by The 3rd Placer, on Flickr The notch was made with a scribing tool to accept the previously measured horn, Morane by The 3rd Placer, on Flickr And the result after cleanup.

  9. Eeehhh, lets not over sell it, its still unfinished! Thanks though.
  10. Also got some PE work done on the tail, but a luck would have it I lost one of the control horns! My technique for apply small PE varies but in this case it was a swabbing of Tamiya extra thin to soften the plastic and allow me to "plant' the horn in place. The wet plastic will give you enough time to position the part at the precise angle you need. To set the part I use cut down mini brushes and extra thin super glue.
