Yes, no sense in tossing away all that work. Besides, exactly how many people would know of the error in the configuration of the plane--not me except that you revealed it. any possibility [or thought] of displaying it "in-flight"?

Well Ted that would be a good fix problem is though i have no pilots in it and the wing fold pieces have already been installed so this is just going to go as is.

Hi Joe, I think Kinetic got it right with the position of the tail wheel in the kit. While there are some pics showing it at rest with the tail wheel touching the ground there are a ton more showing it off the ground. It's not a tail wheel per se but a kind of a "wheelie bar" like on a drag racer and is designed to protect the fuselage from damage on take off and landing.

From looking at videos of it at air shows it looks like the centre of gravity while definitley a bias to the front end looks to be very close to the main wheels as on one video it lands and taxis over rough ground and the wheel bumps the ground a couple of times but when it stops its definitely off the ground


Either way it doesn't detract from your build which is looking splendid by the way

Ok thanks Pete well you seem to have just cleared up a lot of my confusion with this kit. 
Perhaps i need to do some research before i jump to conclusion's but any way it is turning out to be a decent looking bird.

well as you guys can probally tell the the black anti glare on the nose i had to do free hand and it is very hard to get masking tape of any kind to fully conform on curved areas
and on the engine panels iused ass much tape as i could and free hand everything else
and i am at the age to where my hands are not nearly as steady as they used to be

and i am so much better with decal's than free hand painting that i think decal compines should anti glare surfaces out of decals but on some kits they do and some they dont.

but sometimes you cant always get what you want.
So my big nose job is not perfect but the best i could do.

good to see Pete's post about the operation of the Grumman! I had no idea....

Good job with the painting for the black anti-glare areas. I have not applied my bean to that problem before but sitting here I was thinking that maybe a modeler could use some Blue Tac to outline the compound curves on a big nose section like that? I also have some "Parafilm" product that might fit down over that area and then cut out the area to be painted? My problem would then be doing the cut out accurately![frown] I have also read where some modelers take some thin tissue, wet it, and apply to model, let it dry, then cut out the area to be painted--AGAIN, my problem would then turn into cutting the mask accurately...Finally there are various Masking Fluids available, but I would need a mask on the area to be painted in order to apply the masking fluid on the NON painted area! I'm hopeless?!

I did the anti glare sections on my P-38 with some tape and airbrush and STILL had to go back 2X and fix mistakes by hand!!!  I heard a while back at the local model club that Tamiya was coming out with a "flexible" tape to really help with compound masking problems--I never checked to see if it is on the market--DOH!

and now I see that the "flexible" Tamiya Tape has been advertised online for a while. its narrow widths, but that makes sense. once you have the outline, you can add other masking behind it?
