    Dragon's Ta 152

    Post  Guest on Wed Sep 09, 2009 7:29 pm

    Dragon's new kit, actually old with a retooled job came out. I had this on order and
    got it about a week ago. So far i'm a bit disapointed. It seems they took the old
    kit and added some new things, but....you have to cut the old stuff off affraid
    So now i need to cut off the whole nose of the plane, cut some of the wheel covers off too.

    It doesn't fit well in some places either, so will see. I'll post some pics soon.

    My plan is to have it very weather worn and beat up, with a Kulbel coming by telling
    the pilot "either fly it out of here or we'll burn it"

    I'm building this bird also...

    I agree with you..There are some fitting problems...but not serious enough.

    Which one are you building? H-0 or H-1?

    This is the one i'm building in 1/48 scale, i have to cut the whole nose of the plane off, Jeez!
    I've painted the interior of the cockpit, but you'll never see it, it's gonna be more exterior
    looking for this critter.

    Thanks bcauchi & Noel, and alex for that info.
    I've cut the nose off, but unfortunatly there is no pins or anyway to get
    the new nose lined up right, and its also too narrow. So i've had to
    spread it appart and use super glue, not too bad and gaps are not noticable.
    Been using some putty and sanding the seems, so i'll post update pics soon.

    Skyhigh thats the same plane i'm building, even the markings, very cool.
    I'm gonna cheat a bit on mine and make it more weather worn for fun, thanks for all that info!
    Very Happy
