Edgars Bizūns Looks like a good, interesting kit, "perepil" or usual OOB build?

Nikolajs Negeriss Well, the review on other page was too optimistic. I found that fuselage parts and wings are a bit bended. But that should be possible to fix with hair dryer. Otherwise I like accurate panel lines and rivets. Will do my best to avoid any enhancements. The idea with this kit is to practice some painting techniques

Edgars Bizūns Hmm, hot water must work too. It should make plastic more durable but not so hot, so you won't burn your fingers!
Yes, the painting scheme on this one is very special. You can try some metallic paint and color on P-51, this one only has color..

Nikolajs Negeriss Well, will try both - hot water and hairdryer. Let's see what will work for me
But in regards to paintjob... I am not sure yet. You know, for me it's always the question - should I follow standard painting camo or go my own way..

Edgars Bizūns I suppose that this one is pretty interesting already from the box. But you know, I have the same thing too, I like to do my own paintjob versions! I will try something new on my Hurricane today propably, we will see how it will turn out

John Bowling Hot water is the way to go as a hairdryer will heat surface of the plastic quick enough but hot water is more even heat transfer medium. To0 close with the hairdryer and you could cause local melting or blistering of the plastic. Have cold water available to plunge into once shape achieved.
