alancmlaird Posted October 10, 2016 Author Share Posted October 10, 2016 `Kit fuselage joints not great - distortion rather than any bad mismatch. Do old kits distort? Since this one might well be 40 years old, I suppose that's likely. Anyway - you can see the evidence here...filing, sanding, finish with 400 wet n dry, then a coat of matt white along the joins and more wet n dry. I'd advise glueing lugs along the fuselage halves (as I did to re-joint the nose) to help keep the halves in alignment rather than depend on the inadequate location pins moulded into the kit. I didn't. Oh well. I put a little yellow into the matt white primer so I could see what I was sanding. I left the ailerons off as they needed to be thinned down quite a bit at the trailing edge. As you can see, the fuselage joins and the wing-to-fuselage joins needed some work! 6 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
