In a kind of a Mojo-rush after finishing my ZIL fuel truck, I decided to make a weekend build of my Z-9A from DreamModel before continuing on my Z-10. Well, we had a nice start with the PE parts which were a pleasure to work with. The back seats are not a part of the etch set Z-9A, they are from a Z-9WA. I had one set in spare so I can use some parts of it. Than cleaning the main body of the parts that would be used for the "WZ" variants and making a dry-fit was joyful as well. Than I did a bit of research and it doomed me that this will not be that easy going as I initially thought. The kit has some inaccuracies that I’m willing to turn a blind eye to, but it has two major downsides. 1. There are none of the 5 to 7 Antennas, what is not a big deal except for the huge long range antenna on the starboard side. 2. What bothers me is the missing hoist on the starboard side. I have found not one single picture of a French Marine Helicopter without a hoist. cheers, Stephan
Bell P-39Q/N Dream Model 1:32 The new 1:32 Bell P-39Q/N from KittyHawk is a very nice kit straight from the box, but there’s always room for improvement, and Dream Model have released this etch set just for this occasion. Designed purely for the cockpit the single pre-painted sheet is full of those useful little items that can really make a cockpit. The set also includes the instrument panels in a three part systems, where the instruments, printed on an acetate sheet are glued to the back of the panel, then white pare, the templates of which are provided are glued to the back of the acetate. A quick dry run shows that this is particularly effective in this scale and will look great when installed. The rest of the sheet includes items such as the throttle quadrant, throttle cables, door handles, window winder handles, gun cocking handles, various control handles, and even the numerous toggle switches, for which you will definitely need a very fine pair of tweezers and an Optivisor. The set also includes a full set of shoulder and lap straps for the seat. Some parts will require the modeller to provide their own 0.5mm styrene rod. Conclusion I’ve not come across Dream Model before, but judging by this small, yet very useful set, I will be paying more attention to them in future. Very highly recommended.
