You might say I've been waiting for this refit kit since 1979.
Yeeknow, I think it's a individual kit warping thing. Truly, it's nothing a little smart test fitting and hot water can't handle. most seams really match well, with little to no filling req. but do remeber, the "seams" on the main hull are also supossed to be there.Originally posted by Lynn TXP 0369@May 14 2005, 11:58 PM
That is looking really AWESOME Hotshot....
How are the seams on it and how are you dealing with them before and after painting?
I was reading the artical above and it made it sound like they seams were pretty bad and needed attention and some rework of detail, but then I have heard they were pretty good.
They go in right before final fitting. No masking needed. and I put them in with a dab of plastiweld.Originally posted by Lynn TXP 0369@May 24 2005, 08:09 PM
looking good Hotshot..
How are you tackeling the windows??
I'm not putting most of them in.
When I'm done painting it I will use that Testors liquid "window maker" to make the windows.
It is just a clear liquid glue designed to install clear windows on models and make small windows such as these.
It beats masking them off.
