Hi all when I had mine I totally rebuilt it and whilst i was at it i stripped all the paint off the engine casings polished it and engraved it, so I thought I would do the same with this kit. being 1/8 of the original size it obviously wont be as elaborate but will give the general idea.

roughly pened on


this is the tool of choice

oops didnt work too well


I think my next attempt will be heated scribe .

Well I am totally peed off this was advertised as new and unstarted. Someone has gone ahead on the instructions and started the frame, only they've glued it all wrong (and used plenty of it) I've tried getting it apart but it's like it's welded together, and even if I get it apart I'm not sure I can reposition it where it should be, so this is another one that's on hold, funny its another Heller kit.

It would be moulded then if they have used plenty of it.

Hi all I have to apologise to the seller it was my 10 yr old nephew he came over during the day with his mum to visit my missus and decided to have a go. That's what you get for trying to encourage youngsters. He is now banned from my model room unless I am there.

Was the little fella trying to help Ken ? I've had a couple of kid related model snafus in the past lol.

I know it's a pain that he glued the parts wrong but at least a youngster is showing an interest in something that uses a bit of imagination and dexterity and doesn't plug into the tv (I'm talking about my boy here lol) he's become surgically attached to his Xbox.

I hope you can fix it mate

Well I think it is sorted I told him he broke it he has to help me fix it yesterday we had a go at it, it's not pretty but since most of it is underneath the tank I don't think it will show (needs a lot of cleaning up but when he's not around ) will post pics of his help tomorrow.
