I am going to use a Yahumodels Instrument panel and Eduard PE seat belts

 

Some books  880528Doc.jpg


I started by painting the interior of the cockpit s

Hi Patrice,

Have you compared this kit with Monogram? If so how does it dfiffer in main dimencions? Especially interesting is the fselage width.

 

Greetings,

Good evening AcCee26 

I did not take the time to compare this new kit with the Mongram one ..

 

Today after some dry fitting tests of the wings I decided to place the lower part of the wing to the fuselage first

These dry fitting tests showed that I will have to use some putty ..

Good evening

This morning I placed the upper parts of the wings and horizontal stabs

As you can see I will have to use some putty and even some plastic card to fill the gaps (I must admit that I was expecting this ) ..

Good morning

 Yesterday evening I tried to fill the gaps and after all the putty was sufficient of course I will have to do some sanding today (if I have enough time  ..).

Good progress on these two, shame about the gap under the wing but thats what we expect from AZ. Got a couple of these on order and having built the old monogram and heller H75's im looking forward to doing a comparison. I still love the Heller kit so if you have any views between the two, id greatly hear them.

Good morning Hardtarget

 My modelling time is currently spent on finishing the SH Mirage F1CR but as soon as I have completed it I will concentrate on the H75 and I will try to do some comparison as I have both Heller Mongram and Revell kits in my stash along with the AML H75 A4 ...

Best regards

Good evening

I forgot to post pics of the filling and sanding phase ..

A few days ago one of my friend told me that AZmade a mistake on the acces hatches to the gun

 Here are the right design

So Yesterday  according to the plans above I tried to rescribe theses acces hatches but with the paint my work is hardly visible

I filled the upper hatches

And today I started to paint the underside in blue Humbrol  65
