Hi all, Need some help with assembling the Aires F15e exhaust set (172 Academy). There are no directions to speak of and this is the first time I am dealing with resin parts. I also cannot seem to find any kind of step by step from Aires or any other modeler anywhere on the interwebs. Feeling a bit lost, so any help would be greatly appreciated! For ref:
While building my new tool 1/72 Academy F15E, I melted two pieces of the model. First, while using a heat gun, I moderately warped the section that the thrust nozzles connect to. Then, purely out of dumb luck, placed the nearly complete upper fuselage into a puddle of plastic cement. I have contacted the US distributor to get some replacement parts, but at the same time, I see this as an opportunity to learn something useful about fixing stupid mistakes. As such, I would love some advice on how to correct these issues.
