Are you going to have access panels open on this...you have quite a few options with this kit.

Like Pete, I can't believe how easy you are doing this. The detail is even better than I imagined it would be.

Thank you Nigel & Pete! Working the PE is not great fun but doable in small session. I'm actually a little worried about painting the camo. There is some nice PE going on the fuselage but masking over PE doesn't work for me. No matter what primer I use and how careful I try removing the tape, no chance that paint is staying on...

Great work Fabian.
Have you ever thought about masking fluid instead of tape. Haven't tried it my self, but I would try a test run with scrap parts.
If you do try it let us know., cheers mate.

Thank you very much gentlemen! Thinking about doing the camo freehand... but not without testing of model. Pretty sure I will need some candlelight and Bach with it for a relaxed and steady hand, lol.
And about showing of: all the hatches and doors will be open ;-)

Just a little update: closed the fuselage. Pretty tight fit with all those interior parts but quite okay. Have a few seam lines to take care of.



It's looking more like airwolf than hind at the moment but that will change when the wings and canopy goes on :-)

Wow, that's a pretty good fit with all that internal detail. This is an amazing kit.
This was the bit I thought you would have fit problems with, particularly with all that added PE.

I'm lost for words.

I also tough so and did a lot of dry fitting. But with a little force and superglue with a spray of kicker a some places it went together very well :-)

So glad Nigel was so kind of throwing a masking set into the kit, THANKS :-)
One little problem: as I want to show the cockpit doors open I also have to mask the inside of the canopy doors and Eduard (as always :-/) doesn't provide them... This is how I solved it. First I highlighted the outline of the masking parts I used for the outside of the door windows with a soft pencil to create more contrast.
Then I scanned them, mirrored the image with Photoshop and printed them on regular paper...

Now I just placed the print over some masking tape and traced the scan with a blade... simple way to "copy" the very good fitting Eduard masks :-)

One of the doors ready for painting... my hand is huge, lol

Wings and a lot of tiny parts assembled... beginning to look like a mean mi 24 :-)

She needs a nose-job but the canopy fits fairly good.


More PE on the fuselage... Almost ready for painting now.
