Example text

The Aires resin gun bays are beautifully moulded and they look fantastic on the finished model. Careful cutting and sanding are necessary in order to achieve a good fit and to get your wing halves closed. Ultracast propeller, blades and exhaust stacks The Ultracast prop is a great addition to the kit and is much superior to the kit-supplied parts in shape and overall detail. There are two problems you will encounter when using this particular aftermarket product. In every example I have seen of this offering, the prop blades are warped.

This whole process had also irretrievably damaged the wing gun stubs, so I drilled them out and added some tubing. Rather than add a resin aftermarket set, the Tamiya cockpit was updated using pieces of plasticard rod and sheet plastic. The oxygen hose was originally recreated using stretched sprue. Later, this was replaced with a very fine-gauge spring. Wiring in the radio compartment was replicated with fine copper wire. The Tamiya seat is nice, but easily improved by adding styrene supports.

Inside the spring, painted black, is a piece of stretched sprue that was used to fasten the spring to the sidewall. The top and bottom portions of the wing needed to be sanded and ground as thin as possible in the wheel well areas in preparation for the installation of the Aires wheel well plug. The wheel well was first painted black before receiving its topcoat of Testors’ Chromate Yellow. Though the Aires resin wheel well insert is beautifully detailed, it is a challenge to get it to fit properly in the wing.
