The dreaded lure of the yellow wings


Recommended Posts

Hi ,just bought the above kit off ebay ,it was advertised as an Academy kit ,but AM markings were on it ,so that is neither here nor there .

It is dated 2005 and the well known fault on the fuselage sides were present ,anyone out there who has built this kit ,any advice would be helpful .

Also i understand the instructions are not all that clear .

How about another clue as to type of a/c.

My first guess is a Harvard, my second is something pre-WW2 from the USN.

Says sb2u vindicator at the top.

I believe the SB2U-1 has a little problem with the wings.  They seem to have the dihedral of the SB2U-3, which was greater than that of the -1 and -2.  Additionally, there are minor (or 'it's unbuildable' depending on your mindset) issues with the cartridge ejector slots on the underwing surface.

Hi ,thanks for the replies ,the faults i were referring to are the sink  marks on the fabric covered fuselage ,a bit difficult to keep the detail .

The title of the post was a sort of joke ,i lose all reasoning when i see a yellow winged kit ,i have managed to fight off the urge to get the Kittyhawk 1/32 Kingfisher kit .😀😀

Don't know why that is .
