Ken from NJ Posted March 25, 2017 Share Posted March 25, 2017 Have a long-term Luftwaffe build plan going on. Needs four 190A-8s and a 190F-8. Saw a pretty good bunch of deals on Eduard Weekend Editions when I started prepping and getting kits over the past couple of years so I got a bunch. Always heard good things about them. Finally started building an Eduard A-8 after last Christmas... ... and it's still in pieces. I'm taking ALL the blame for just not getting it: -- can't get the wings to close up along the leading edge. -- fuselage very fiddly around the wing root gun bays -- nice engine but I only need it for the prop shaft to attach to the prop (panels gonna be closed up) -- actually lined up the exhaust pipes easily enough but during dry fitting to fuselage and cowling could barely see them and only viewing from the rear -- instructions call for fuselage and wing root guns be installed very early in the build and I broke off a gun barrel of course I'll get through it I think. I've been building a long time but I'm wondering if subconsciously I want kits to fall together moreso as I get older. And I have four more kits, just hope I can learn from these current flubs. Just feels better to let off a little frustration here. Ken Quote Link to post Share on other sites
