These type of holes are a pain to fill, next time try and see if you can carve a bit of sprue to size and glue it in the hole, let it dry and clip it off then it can be sanded to size

missed the ejection mark on joystick base but don't think you will be able to see it when all is done

That's a really nice set Panz ! The tug is very similar to the one I have seen in 1/32 but it doesn't come with any figures, I reckon there will be a few carrier deck dioramas in the group build, but there is only so much that can be done with a naval Phantom I guess

Sounds intriguing Ted, I did give some thought to try and come up with something different, but fact of the matter is, I have wanted to do a carrier deck for a long time, and a phantom in jolly rogers markings is the reason I bought this kit. I really want to get the 1/32 trumpeter intruder at some stage but I'm running out of kidneys to sell lool ! But if I can get one at telford for a decent price I will be able to display it on the deck with my phantom

Those model manufacturers just love putting pin marks in hard to get places don't they ! A real pain in the butt to fill and sand

Panz, if you have any, just put maybe three layers of 500 grade Mr surfacer on the ejector pin parks. Just build it up slowly (it drys real fast) and that way you can really focus the filling to avoid destroying details. When it is dry a really light sanding will get rid of the pin marks no problem.

I have not got to that point yet but will be going down that route myself.

EPM--boo! I am guess that the mold making guys don't build their on models they mold? maybe they should, and try to deal with the EPM. they can be avoided in molding but it takes a costlier approach, right??

thanks Andy used 500 on 2 of the marks which where sunken and the 2mm trumpeter chisel on rest which where raised, first time I have used this and recommend it, I will be getting the 1mm £5:59 from models are go well worth it I think. Funny how no marks on other side which will not be seen maybe it is a cost thing Ted
