  1. Just completed this i used ,eduard etch interior, exterior and equipment sets ,and scratch built front seats, I've not bult the revell, fujimi or airfix sea king kits,but this one went together really well, a few corrections from the base kit to produce this version,but nothing major,i painted it with mr hobby and tamiya paints
  2. 👍👍Thanks Jim, much appreciated
  3. Didn't know the 1/1 mers dimensions, but the amount the eduard mers are off doesn't surprise me, just looking at mers fitted A6s and then offering them up to the 48th scale model set alarm bells ringing, before trying them with bombs, just goes to show how spectacularly even well respected company's can get it so wrong. Jari this is what I was 90%sure of, but there was a lingering doubt, BTW a few weeks ago I followed my own advice and bought the hobbyboss A7e just for the mers and extra bombs, may use the kit as a paint mule my eduard ones will be resigned to the spares box, in time I hope to extend them using a couple of sacrificial eduard spares, Glynn, thanks
  4. If you may, do have info on the war horses snakeye loads, if that was similar to the CBUs load you mentioned, thanks Glynn Or will it be in the book?
  5. Hi specter.have a look at. A10 -LOADER 'S REVELL-monogram a6 tram intruder build, in the in progress section.you may have to type it in search. he highlights the issues with the CBUs and mers from eduard. I've got eduard mers and the eduard snakeyes for mine and can confirm they dont fit either. Glynn Btw hasegawas weapon set costs nearly as much as the hobbyboss a7e
  6. Hobbyboss mers and CBUs fit fine, now you've identified your kit, there are only two mers in it, so you'll need another two, from somewhere, if you end up buying eduards mers it will be expensive as you'll need two sets(3per box) And its the eduard mers that pose fit problems with either they're own resin bombs or the kit ones, you'll also need more CBUs from what I remember there aren't enough on the hobbyboss sprues for a slant 4 load (16), probably the cheapest and guaranteed fit is to buy the hobbyboss A7e kit and use the 2 mers and the CBUs you need from it(same weopons sprues) and you get a load of stuff left over😁, this kit can be had for around £22 in the UK, all the best hope that's clearer
  7. What kit, and mers are you using, revell, hobbyboss? I know The 1/48 aftermarket mers from eduard are nicley detailed but they are a bit short for revell, hobby boss or eduards own cbu's or rockeyes for that matter, to varying degrees, there are a couple of builds in the forum mentioning it. and my own 48th scale warhorses hb a6 build has (temporarily) stalled because of it , if your already clued in on this fair do's, hope it go's well, My thoughts, if your using the very nicely detailed 1/48 hb kit, is to buy the mistake ridden 48th hb corsair a7 e kit, £22 in the UK, with this you'll get the CBUs to add to the hb a6 CBUs to make the slant 4 configuration, and the extra two mers (only two provided in each kit), and other smart bombs and bits for the spares box, bin the fuselage halves, or build it and don't worry ,it's up to you , eduard mers will cost you nearly double this, 3 in each pack @ £16 each pack, only trying to pass on help if your doing 48th, hope this helps Glynn
  8. Good job, looks like you've avoided any dreaded alignment issues, that would have been eye catching
  9. Steve, I'm going to attempt the same tricky bit as you this weekend, lining up poor fitting eduard parts, I've been putting it off since I found the size discrepancy on mine , but I must move on, it isn't going on the shelf, I'll be watching yours, all the best
  10. Very Much better than the eduard offerings I've just put together, great job on the dremel .i like the control panel on the backs too, I'm pondering on using 4 hobbyboss ones now its apparent that my eduard snakeyes don't fit the eduard mers
  11. Stunning cockpit reference, nice one colin, And only taken monday?
