Recommended Posts

planning to do the colourful Vichy version

no decals provided for the red and yellow stripes, so a lot of masking fun ahead...

started with the cockpit floor, kit includes lots of (tiny) parts like the pedals..

my dad already wondered why there was a "void" between engine and cooler...the missing part isn´t mentioned in the instructions but luckily included in the kit

Very nicely done, inside and out! The whacking great spinner will hide most of your engine detail unfortunately - the 1/72 Heller kit didn't even bother with engine detail for that reason.

 

Looking forward to the decals.

 

Regards,

Adrian

and the wheels added

the pins of the legs are thinner than the holes in the wheels, wasn´t that easy to get the wheels in the right position, hope the stay on the legs, added some CA glue for security
