  1. Hi all. Last finished model. Single flight across the Atlantic, pilot Felix Waitkus.
  2. A build from 7 years ago: The MPM 1/72 scale kit was the base for the project. Several details have to be deleted and others added: 1) Deletion of all windows and door 2) Re-scribing of door in new position 3) Addition of faired tail wheel 4) Re-doing of the prop hub 5) New decals 6) Vacuformed canopy (just in case) 7) Modification of the fuselage areas where the two aft landing gear struts rest, which had four fairings (two on each side) instead of one as the kit subject. 8 ) Two short exhaust tubes replacing kit’s. 9) Venturi on the left hand-side of the fuselage The kit is nice; it is not a short-run kit but full injection with metal molds. The level of detail is good but there are no locating devices for the parts as in a short-run kit. This kit has been reviewed extensively on the Net. The fit is just good, with adjustments needed for the wing/fus joint and the engine support part and the fuselage (the former a tad smaller than the opening in the fuselage). The tail feathers’ to fuselage joint again need refining. In my sample I had to remove a little bit of material from the inside of the wheel pants for the wheels to fit comfortably. The canopy, wing and fuselage joint need also attention. The canopy must be glued first once all the dry trials have been performed to satisfaction. The kit's instructions will mislead you on gluing the LG oleo legs (A9-A10) to part A21. That's incorrect, as photos clearly show, the oleos should be glued to the wheel pants', into the recesses provided for that effect (small notch on top of are in relief on the inner side of pants). I am very happy to see a civil kit of a relevant plane, which was presented in many versions and has the potential to be converted in even more models of truly significant machines. Applause and well done, MPM. I printed my own decals based on a drawing sent to me by the late Jim Schubert (thanks, Jim, I know you are looking and having fun). My gratitude to the person that made that drawing too.
