Thank you so much ! _____________________________________________________________ Improving Hasegawa 1:48 Tomcat - 07 Main Fuselage (VI) When I thought I had solved all the issues related to the air intakes (pic 68) - ie the two sets B1 / B10-B11 and B9 / B2-B3 - I realized that they do not fit well to the lower fuselage, despite what shown in the instructions (pic 69). After another careful dry-fitting session, I had to choose between cutting some of the lower fuselage, cutting some of the upper edges of the B10-B11 and B2-B3 sub-assemblies, or trowing my Hasegawa Tomcat into the garbage. At the end, I decided to remove the areas shown in pics 70 and 71. This operation has not been easy. Pics 72 and 73 show how, with the help of a photo-etched saw, I did it. The following pic 74 shows the reworked, now shorter, lower fuselage part. These other two pictures (pic 75 and 76) show the lower fuselage halfway in this process. As you can see in pics 77, 78, and 79 the intake trunk sub-assembly is now clear from any fitting problem. As a result, my Tomcat won't fly into the garbage. At last not yet.
