Hello,
I present the model of the training transport aircraft Aero C-3A. The model is made of the Special Hobby set. In the box, the model looks very good, great interior details, very nice surface of the fuselage and wings. During construction, it turns out that the model in many places is underdeveloped and gluing it becomes very problematic. This applies above all to glazing, wings and engines. And one more thing, it's best to use CA glue for gluing.
The whole construction process can be seen here.
Nice watch.

A few photos from the building process.

Very nice result! Surprising problems with fit. But I 've seen on your build thread that plastic was soft enough and some squeezing helped.

 

 

BTW - the Candian scheme you'presented in build thread:

Is either fake (WhatIF) or perhaps a moovie scheme (???) ...  The Nord Martinet nor original wartime Siebel 204  were never operated by RCAF, especially as aircraft carrier (landing hook!) anti submarine machine in 1950s or 1960s. markings.

Only two RCAF pilots were flying captured Siebels in 1945, while they were tested in UK

This first appeared in a Random Thoughts (IPMS Canada) issue as a joke and has since been copied elsewhere - a warning to jokers everywhere!

Outstanding build and finish!!! You took a short-run kit with major fit issues and  made it look like the best offering of Tamiya!  Did you add rivet detail? Again thank you for posting this outstanding replica!

You undertook a difficult challenge and turned it into something very special. Very nicely done model.

Very nice build and great finish.

I'm quite surprised the fit is so challenging. I was interested in this kit myself but seeing your WIP I may reconsider.

 

Cheers

Fabulous build and finish, in spite of all the fit problems.

 

Top tier modelling!

 

Kind regards,

Great job at completing a tough model.  I also am surprised at the problematic fit on this.  I would have expected better as this was a more recent tooling, and also of a plane that would be close to their heart being they are a Czech company.

The first look is very positive. When I started building this model, I thought I would make it quickly. After the first adjustments, the hope for quick and easy construction lowered me.
