Artie Posted January 2, 2018 Share Posted January 2, 2018 Happy first labour day for 2018...!!!! My Hawker Fury came to a hiatus until my local music shop restocks some Fender electric guitar string, wich I use for rigging 1/48 biplanes... Meanwhile, I'd like to resume the work with the Harvard I. I decided to use an old Sierra Scale Models vacuform kit (BC-1 or Wirraway, can't remember), and lots of leftovers from some Ocidental Réplicas Harvard. Having learnt about the MDC's conversion inccuracy, the vacuform seemed a very nice option, so I took advantege of the day off, and removed the main parts from the plastic sheets....the fit is better than expected, surely better than that on some limited run kits I assume the interior parts would be quite similar (cockpit frame, floor rails, etc...), but what about the seats...???? Given the fact that the Ocidental parts are of any use, wich seats would be right for that early trainer...???? Would the early style P51 seats fit the part..??? I'm trying to keep my budget to a minimun, so the Ultracast option is not in my mind by now, specially because I'm planning to place an order for some Belcher Bits kits, and my expenses are very limited...so must trust my spares box.... The other challenge are the decals. Will have to dig into my decal surplus, three binders full of odds and ends accumulated through the years.... Any good colour profile, pic, etc....???
