(even if in the wrong scale.... :coolio:)

 

I know. It is of wrong scale. 🙂 But in a way, it is a rather pleasant scale to work with.

I sooooo knew I have to give you this kit! This is marvelous!

 

I'm very grateful for your decision!

 

 Although I've encountered some problems during the project, I still do like the kit very much. It's a great starting point for a hugely detailed model.

Several small exhausts (six, as far as I've been able to find) are located on the ventral fuselage. Some of these slightly protruding pipes are round, some oval - but none of them are included on the kit. At first I was just trying to represent them as mere drilled out holes but that just didn't look the part. I had suitable metal pipes of different sizes (electric connectors, actually) so they were used instead.

 

Also missing was an oval hatch (in orange). It still lacks piano hinges on the bottom

Excellent detail additions. Remember to remove/fill the extra panelline on each wing after the fences. (Was removed in CAD but too late for tooling)

 

Also, kinda proud of myself to finish it before you even though i had like 5 years headstart. 😎😛

Thanks! I think some of the additions are quite essential. I don't have the kit in hand right now, so I'm not sure which panel line you're referring to.

 

Good for you, Berk! I'm trying to finish this kit before the autumn. In autumn. Let's say before the winter! 😄

Welcome to 1/48 scale!! Great work so far!!! It is first time that i read that HB have some details better than any other kit producer!!

 

I had naturally read all the ARC 1/48 Foxhound threads and although there have been views (at that time radical views in my mind!) that the HB is actually better, it was only when I really started building this kit and noticed that they really DID got some things better than AMK.

Lets just say when the 'rona is over! See the filled panelline on the wings, that section is just one large panel;

Thanks! 

 

Still, every drawing I've found (even the better looking and detailed ones = Russian) seem to depict a line there. But, you seem to be right, there is no recessed line there:

But there certainly seems to be a faint weld line. On the other hand, all the weld lines on the kit are represented as recessed lines anyway. On this case, since the line is so delicate, I might actually delete the recessed one altogether. So, thanks for the tip!

Yes, during my research i also found out there was a weld line there but being so small i didnt bother with it, just filled the recessed panelline.
