Having not started the Farman kit, and with uncompleted Builds all over the place the obvious thing to do is to post a fresh build thread rather than finish an existing one ! To be fair this is also prompted by the fact I'm building not one but 2 French aircraft in the High Wing GB, and I was feeling guilty I was letting @Wez down. So please see below, this will go nicely with my recent Potez 452 Parts and instructions pictures to follow. Cheers Pat
Although Late 302 is among the most sought after kits I haven't ever seen it built. Time to change this sad stats and seriously decrease the value of my stash by building one The kit comes without decals so one of the first task was to get one. I bought a book about french flying boats that I could not praise high enough https://www.amazon.co.uk/French-Flying-Boats-Gerard-Bousquet/dp/8363678066 Based on the information from the internet and this book I have ordered a custom decal. It has arrived recently and I'm very pleased with it The decal was designed and printed (with white, otherwise I would print it myself) by a man called Alexey, check out his portfolio, highly recommended http://www.pas-decals.ru/forum/barakholka/6085-shtuchnye-dekali-po-individualnym-zakazam Another problem is that the transparent parts are all yellow and cannot be used. I decided to vacform my own using kit's canopy as a master. On the right is the canopy from Bizerte that is even worse. I will try to utilize the abilities of my vacforming machine and fix two problems at the same time. First step - create a positive silicon form once the form settles I will take a negative silicon form from it using separation fluid and cast a negative resin form out of it.
