Thanks! It's a nice kit to build and yes, it's quite big... The paintjob was a lot of work but turned out very nice in my opinion.

excellent work, how was your model in the join points of the motor booms and the wings? I havent finished mine, half way there, but the work on that area was hell. It was not about filling... but chopping plastick chunks out of the motors... 🙁

Wow, thank you guys. @Eduardo: The wings are terrible indeed. The fit of the engines is very poor and the thickness of the wings doesn't match with the engines. I filled up the whole leading edge with with plastic card to meet the difference. When the engines were placed I smoothed the whole area and rescribed a lot of panellines because of all the sanding in that area.

Fantastic work - you definitely have the patience to create a most realistic metal finish. She is a beauty! 🙂

After reading the problems you had with the kit, I understand why i is so seldom seen. And so it's not only because it's a big and expensive kit.

Congratulation for finishing it in such a beautifull way

Very nice model! Impressive paintworK I have the same on my workbench. can't live up to these standards i think.

Yes in deed, mine has been on the making for more than 5 years, that problem really slow me down. Plus the fuselage plastic is so thin that you have to reinforce a lot. It make you wonder about all other kits you don't see that often, like the b-1 or b-2, etc. @ronald: you took the other way on the cross road, whe I was faced in that particular choice of the placing of the motors, I decided to make them even by removing all the excess from the upper part of the motor to met the upper part of the wing because I felt adding plastic would misalign the motors, so I had to sand and sand and rescribe and rescribe.... It really got the mood out of building the model. Finally whe I wot it fairly to keep up the project I focused on the fuselage, but that's another story, I will start a project of it and explain all in there.... Great job again! It Gage's me strength to keep up mine.

Thank you all for your kind replies. For those who are interested, here is the complete building proces step by step, including the paintjob: http://www.opschaal.net/phpbb/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=313
It's all in Dutch language...
Again, thanks for all the comments!

I do not understand dutch but the photos are really impresive and display the poor fit as well as the painting procedure very well. Did I understand correct that you sprayed one alclad over the other? This build must have been a torture. Congratz that you finished this challenge.

Ronald Rozema
@Christian Lehman: I started with a black coat Gunze gloss black. Applied the Alclad on the whole model with polished aluminium. All the detail work is done without spraying a new coat of black, so yes, I sprayed one Alclad over the other. No problem.
