Great work with the brass seats Hendie, although, I couldn't see much wrong with the plastic ones. The framing was lighter on the plastic ones and looke dto me a tad better scale wise. Anyway, you are not going to draw me into this one by nice comments. As I mentioned Merlins and Wessex to build not to mention a Dauphin II, I started to help a friend who was not a helo modeller with his build... That one languishs back in it's box...

I think I'd agree with that statement.  I must check and see if I've got any smaller diameter rod laying about

Get well soon Mrs H.

 

I bet you can't fix the car with Milliput & solder though.

I did once patch a cracked exhaust weld with a blob of milliput, stopped the racket until I could get it rewelded 😉

Concur. I wish I'd done the same now, instead of modifying the kit seats. Not changing it, though!

Hi Hendie,

 

Someone at Telford had a 1/48th Scout converted from the Fujimi Wasp kit and made a good job of it. With your skills it should be easy!

Now if you can hang on for a couple of weeks, my Warpaint book on the Scout & Wasp will be published and has all the engine detail drawings you need.

 

Good Luck! 

 

Adrian
