Hello forum members & vickers experts, I have a little problem. Just ordered the F-Resin Vickers Viscount 800 (Hannants) but in the package was a -700 (in a -800 Box...). As I ordered some lovely -800 decals from 26 already too, and I'm too lazy to make an inquiry and send it back and wait for a refund or exchange kit I wondered, as I planned to do some scratchwork anyway, is it so hard to convert a -700 to an 800? What would be required? Different Cockpit Windows style (fixed by decals ) Different doors (filling the old ones, fixed by new -800 style door decals) Lengthening the fuselage (now my question, I calculated 28 mm length difference in 1:144 scale according to my references, is that correct? Where to cut the fuselage - in front or aft of the wing? any other major differences (worth mentioning in 1/144 scale ?) Thanks a lot !! Happy modelling, Olli
