The Typhoon-Saga contiues.
Each of us knows the moment when sitting in front of a model and ask yourself: Why? Why do I build this kit? .... Give up? No way!
Spent a lot of time with reworking the cockpit-area and the intake trunk. Last weekend I saw small cracks on the canopy... I wrote to Revell, hopefully they will replace it soon.
|The HUD are prepared and will be installed soon.|
|Revell solution for the intake..... well...|
|not the best.... How to improve?|
|I found two of this jet exhausts in my universe of left over parts. Cutted out the marked area and clued it in place|
|After filling and sanding|
|much better. Once painted you will be able to see the "engines"|
|Made some sanding tools with wood, small sponge pieces and sanding paper. I glued all with white glue|
|Front wheel well... once again, no details.....|
|added some wires and evergreen bits.|
|I did not follow the Revell way and installed the upper wings part first|
|careful sanding and trimming reduces the need of putty|
|only a small amount of putty will be needed here. . Next the main wheel well. More in next update.|
