Got a limited edition 1/48 Eduard NATO Falcon kit and I was wondering if it needs a seamless intake? I

have never built a Kinetic kit and was wondering if the kit parts are ok or do I need to replace them?

As Lex pointed out, latex house paint can make a truly seamless intake. In addition to smoothness, the latex paint also deals with painting, which would otherwise be tricky.

 

I didn't use that technique, however, and did achieve a sufficiently smooth intake on my Kinetic F-16. At the end of the day, it was probably be more effort for a lesser result, but it was just puttying and smoothing. To smooth the Tamiya fine putty, I first used cotton buds with Mr Thinner to get the seam more or less smooth. Abrasive pads were used for the final feathering.

Thanks for the replies fellas, but that is easier in 1/32 than it will be in 1/48. I guess I'll look for a seamless intake. Got any suggestions for a small mouth resin seamless? Cheers!
