dhdove Posted March 12, 2015 Share Posted March 12, 2015 (edited) Hi All My first WIP, I'm a little nervous! I have been asked to build this kit by a friend as a present. He has supplied the kit (tho I also have one waiting in my stash). This is a £90.00 kit and since I'm building it for someone else as a present for their friend I'm doubly nervous! My experience of Trumpeter to date hasn't been great. I've abandoned a 1/48 Skywarrior due to excessively bent and warped fuselage halves (I'm awaiting replacements from the UK importer) and a rather difficult 1/48 Vigilante build (which is on here in Ready for Inspection, tho I loved the end result). I've done some net research and would especially like to thank AAbshier for his most informative 2009 build here on Britmodeller. It seems this kit has some issues too..... The kit is to be displayed clean on a stand, wheels up, airbrakes closed, probably in a suitably dynamic attitude (near vertical climb?), I'm thinking perhaps some form of curved plastic rod from a base to the jet tubes. I've had a post on Cold War asking for advice as to how to do this for a couple of days, but so far no response. I've opened the box and the first thing to say is, this is a BIG kit! I'm hoping to start at the weekend. I've ordered a couple of aftermarket items which should be here in a couple of days and I'll detail them when they arrive. I think that's it for my first post..... .......wish me luck? TonyS Edited March 12, 2015 by dhdove 4 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
