Is passenger compartment coming without seats still? Hmmm. Looked on the instruction posted to Facebook. Seems it's something like side wall cushions or stretchers/beds for medical version. Probably right option for TC/UC military variants.

If somebody wants to get really accurate, all of the US Navy/Marine Corps 200 Series UC-12s (B/F/M) had the high floatation landing gear. That means that the main wheels are the same size as nose wheel, and extended below the gear well on the engine nacelle when retracted, requiring the main gear doors to be shorter. The kit has the standard main wheels and full length gear doors, so a little bit of work may be required.

 

Cheers,

Hoops

I've flown that one several times. First met up with her in Charleston, SC.

Sadly, the extended nacelles on N820UP, and some other really nice civil schemes are not available in any of the AV boxings.

Arrived today and looks very nice. its not clear from the images in this thread but the cheatlines for the Marine scheme are red and gold which look superb and may have just changed my mind as to which scheme to build.

 

Lots of very tiny parts!

Having noticed that the UC-12/TC-12 kit had the smaller wheels, I did some comparison with other kits in the stash and found that the wheels in the Airfix Sea King seem to be exactly the right size for the TC-12B. 

The hubs are different, but the Reskit set of replacement wheels (RS72-42) I have might be a good starting point since the hubs are separate from the tires.

 

Cheers

Oh nice!!! Seems this one will finally have full cabin set with passenger seats and also VIP sofas (seems not used in this particular set). Would anyone issue now a set of interior equipment for IDF Tzufit?

I don't have any photo comparisons or red lines to back it up, but I think that the angle of the windscreen on these kits is too shallow. Looking at the clear plastic parts in my hands, as well as completed builds on the internet compared to my experience and photos of the aircraft, I don't think that they quite got the angles right. Of note, in all of the illustrations and packaging, the angle looks a lot better, just not in the plastic.

 

I don't know if there is a good way to fix the windscreen angle though, we are probably stuck with it. Has anyone else noticed that as well?

 

Other than that I think it's a decent short run kit, and at an easier price point than that the RVHP resin kit.

 

Cheers,

Hoops
