Dornier 27 (Special Hobby 1/72)
« on: August 19, 2018, 03:13:42 PM »
Time to prepare the next builds as I've finished the Rafale M and I'm finishing the "cute" Corsair...
This is the Dornier 27 from Special Hobby at 1/72 scale.
Nice kit; hope the build will be fun...
Of course, I will build the Belgian version  :))

Friends from the Brussels Air Museum helped me for what concerns the seatbelts... I think I will use Eduard's LW seatbelts as a base. ANyway, I'm in the first stage, prepairing the cockpit interior (and the engine interior) for base primer...

At the request of Didier Waelkens from IPMS-Belgium who asks me to finish the kit before december (for an article for KIT, the IPMS-Belgium magazine), I will concentrate my actual hobby time on the Dornier 27.

I've removed the clear parts from the sprue. So doing, I've constated that the sprues made gaps on the doors... I've tried to correct that problem (sanding, three different grades of compound, klir) but impossible: it's too deep... I've sent a mail to Special Hobby asking for replacement parts. Anyway I can eventually build the kit with open doors: so doing the gaps will not be visible, but I prefer to build kits "all closed".

Today I've masked the clear parts on the cockpit. As I'm tired and hands are shaking too much, it's enough for one sitting...
