Site Admin 730 Posted March 20, 2019 Report Share Posted March 20, 2019 Hi all, And for my next trick, I'll magic a Revell (ex-Hasegawa) Bf 109G-4 Trop into a veteran of the Battle of Britain film, using the Attitude Aviation resin conversion set. This is going to get very messy! I've been working away on this, cutting, slicing, sawing and grinding resin and plastic for a few weeks. The base kit is a 1:32 Revell (ex-Hasegawa) Bf 109G-4Trop in this delightful tan coloured plastic. My thanks to a good friend, Mark, for donating the kit to be scarified on the altar of butchered birds. A small drill bit, scalpel and razor saw were used to tear into the model, plus I also wanted to remove the casting blocks and see what the new resin nose looked kit. I'm sure you'll agree it looks pretty good. I also have the BoB (Luftwaffe) add-on for this kit with a small number of Buchon schemes/options available, and as this one has cropped tips, I also hacked those away and tested the new tips. Some final tweaking and sanding would be needed to perfectly blend them in, but nothing too onerous. Another thing, I hate the look of Hasegawa model surfaces with their minimal details, so I'm entirely flush-riveting this model with a beading tool from MDC. It's one at a time, but the difference is well worth the effort. Here you go! Cockpit painted and the resin nose is now more or less fitted, with some careful reshaping of the profile and stuff. It's not been too easy in places, but some careful perseverance, continual test-fitting and a little plastic shimming here and there, things do go together as planned. 8 Quote Link to post Share on other sites
