Liberator tail

Recommended Posts

Some time ago I built the Minicraft Liberator 'D'. I followed the instructions and when I had finished someone pointed out that the fins were upside down.

I am currently building an Academy H, which clearly illustrates the fins in the same arrangement of the Minicraft kit i.e. with the larger portion below the tailplane.

Have both of these manufacturers got it wrong?

Minicraft and Academy were not separate manufacturers but one and the same at the time, so it was just a single mistake.  I must admit being astonished that no-one has pointed this out sooner - or perhaps they have but I missed it.

It can't be that hard to pop them off and re-glue them in the correct position...

But all the markings will be upside down.

I did wonder if the left/right parts could be inverted and exchanged, or whether some of the detail (eg rudder hinges) mean that they will have to be separated and re-mounted higher - easier to do on the unmade one, of course.  However, just a bit of filler and black paint - could be a lot worse!
