that is some seriously serious RESIN indeed! looks like they ripped the real stuff out and shrunk it down, put it in a box, and sent it to you. Those forms hand built/carved or do they use some type of computer guided cutter/shaper in a block of resin? at any rate is is fantastic! best wishes as you tackle the mods to the Phantom to accommodate the resin. Still working on mine from 2014.

If you are looking for brushes with a very fine point, might I suggest going into a make-up shop and look at their Eye Liner brushes.

No joke...they are cheap..and great for fine detail.

Thanks for the advice Nigel. I already checked my GF's stash but finally used one of my own brushes. But it's funny how similar my weather stuff is to here make up drawer... ;-)

Finished the cockpit - yey! I took my time painting it and very much like the look of it. I think it's worth the extra effort so this won't be my last AM pit :-).










I also started preparing the fuselage to fit the office in there. Not there yet but getting there. But I can already tell you that a little sanding like the instructions advice isn't enough... not even close! Hope I can post some pictures soon.

Thanks for looking :-)

Trust me, Fabian, do not look in her handbag. [wink]

Love that wonderfully detailed cockpit. Great job.

The cockpit is fantastic Fabian, that's a serious amount of detail in there for the scale !

And I've had experience with Aires pits before too and know exactly what a "little bit of sanding" means lol

Thank you very much Pete and apatish! The cockpit is looking very dense, for sure with the seats in it. But those still needing some paint.

I'm busy fitting in the resin wheel wells. The fit is quite okay but I have a question about the main landing gear: there are taps in the wheel well to fit in the landing gear...


It fits very nice but when I put the wheel well on the wing section the wing is covering those taps which means I have to glue in the landing gear first, risking knocking them of in the building progress.


I could also trim the taps and glue the landing gear in at the end but then I'm afraid it won't hold firmly enough... Hmmm, what to do? Any suggestions?

Super glue will
Also you can take the wheel strut and well drill vertically through & into both underneath
& through into the landing strut itself and use a steel pin as a locater and strengthener.

Ok you might have touch up the paint after gluing etc. but weathering will be easier
and you won't break them off [smile]

Thanks Paul. The problem with using a steel pin that I have almost no material to drill into. The wells are one covered by the thin upper wing which I already had to sand to fit in the resin... So not much to have a grip on. I'll check the WIP's from the Phantom GB, quite some academy kits there :-)

ah, hadn't realised you had glued the wells in place, that makes it a touch trickier then.
Still though, I reckon Super Glue would hold it well enough for parking conditions,
though they might not survive a full on carrier deck landing [biggrin]

I think I have an idea, is the hydraulic strut fixed to the gear or is it separate?
