Kitty Hawk RF-101A/C

I am slowly building the RF-101C kit and have got to the painting stage, no extra parts included to correct the intake issue that I can see. I am in the UK so maybe different here?

 

As with many KH kits, they're not referenced in the instructions at all. You have to search the sprues, but they're there.

Jon, thanks for confirming that. I'm amazed almost everyone missed that (but didn't keep them from moaning). Homebee on BritModeller pointed this out. 

 

Any idea where the cut needs to be made to correct this? As you say, it's not in the instructions.

 

Thanks,

 

Marc.

Aha! I wondered what those four curved parts were! Too late for this build as I have reached the painting stage so will have to make a second RF-101C this time in SEA camouflages scheme.

 

For the record I find that care has to be taken in some areas of building this kit but the end result looks good. The RF-101C has been my wish for subject in 48th scale for many years now.

I've just oredered the RF-101C kit after I read extra parts were included to correct the intake issue. Gary doesn't mention these in his dry build for some reason.

Hello, Marc! The correction with these parts looks vague and tricky, in my opinion.

There are the furrows on an inner sides of the intakes. I think that the KH engineers offer us to cut an intake trunks there an use the provided parts to make a new lips.

 

I didn’t measure an angles on these parts, but all we need is to made the 90 degree angle between the fuselage and an intake. I think that just to cut an existing intake is a way better idea.

 

Please, look for fresh and interesting discussion about it here: RF-101C auxiliary tanks.

 

There is some information about an intakes and drop tanks.

 

Also, here is my friend’s build on a BM: RF-101C VOODOO 1/48 Kitty Hawk.

 

Cheers! 😎
