russ c Posted October 15, 2019 Share Posted October 15, 2019 Hi Everyone, Glad so say I`ve finally finished my attempt at building a `Sonia` from Wingsy Kits 1/48 kit Finished to represent an aircraft of the 27th Hikosentai, Burma, 1942 ( Oh why did I chose _that scheme and _that armament ! ) Built almost entirely from the box contents, the only additions being the aerial wires I found the kit to be a bit of a struggle and, because of Wingsy`s `why make a part out of one piece when you can make it out of five` approach, a bit of a chore too The fit of the parts is great and the level of detail is very high......... ....but the plastic is very similar to Kitty Hawks `Twougar` kit and is hard to sand and doesn`t stick well ( I found Humbrol Liquid cement worked best ) The opening part of the pilots canopy isn`t a good fit either, it`s very thick and really needs a vac formed part. Still, got there in the end and am glad to have one in the collection. Hope you enjoy, thanks for looking Cheers Russ 40 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
