Gordon Sørensen There is a grand total of 14 parts in the kit. And it has the detail you would expect from a kit that has 14 parts... The instructions (what little there is) have you scratchbuild a lot of the interior, as well as some exterior parts..
Instead, I made a resin cast copy of the tailwheel, antenna, sidewall, floor and seats from the Academy T-6G. I also cast a copy of the engine and airscoop from the AZUR NAA-57..
10. May at 17:43:19
Matthew A This looks intresting. From what I have heard Beechnut Models are accurate in shape but need a lot of work
10. May at 17:50:23
Erik De Smet I once had this kit too and it ended in the waste bin, once the AZUR kits came out ...
15. May at 18:33:47
Gordon Sørensen Got the resin interior installed. Still have to do the rear bulkhead and shelf, but that will be done in plasticard.
Either through bravado or over-estimation of my abilities, I razor-sawed the cowling off.
Figured there was no way I was going to be able to mount the interior and the engine, and close the fuselage up...
Added a 0.5mm spacer to give the cowling a little more visual impact. That, and to give me a little more room for the replacement resin engine. Still had to trim the heck out of it to get it to fit though.
15. May at 18:41:37
Matthew A Good idea removing the cowling to make work easier
15. May at 18:44:53
Gordon Sørensen The fuselage came together OK. The rear of the cockpit on one fuselage side was short-shot, so built that up with a bit of putty. A lot of sanding required to get ride of a step in the fuselage seem. That removed some of the detail so I re-scribed the panel lines with a razor saw.
Split the elevators from the horizontal stabilizers. Like most short-run kits, they are a butt-joint. The profile difference between the stab and fuselage mount is huge. Not sure if I should use card-stock to build it up or just Putty it....
Checked the wings, and the profile doesn't even come close to matching the mount on the fuselage...
9. June at 12:35:06
Gordon Sørensen Painted the engine. Scratchbuilt front and rear instrument panels. Quite happy with how they turned out.
4. July at 00:04:43
Gordon Sørensen The instrument panels are not quite accurate, but better than what was included in the kit (nothing).
Detailed the propelller. I think it looks a lot better. Need to repaint the propeller hub a different silver though....

Gordon Sørensen Very nice cockpit detail... but, the insert isn't quite wide enough and leaves a gap between it and the fuselage sidewalls.
Split the rudder from the fuselage, and royally screwed that up. Using the Razor saw, got out of the panel line and made a cut in the tail. A little Tamiya Putty later, and hopefully no one will notice too much.
Split the elevators from the horizontal stabilizers too. That went much better...
The Fuselage/Wing fit is excellent. Much better than the Academy Spitfire Mk. XIV...
9. June at 13:20:19
Gordon Sørensen A little putty on the wing/fuselage junction and a bit at the tail. Painted the Anti-Glare panel. Masked the ailerons. Going to do them, the elevators and the rudder in Testors Silver.
4. July at 00:01:05
Gordon Sørensen Painted the control surfaces. Need to do the wing walkways, mask them and the nose anti-glare and will be ready for more paint.

Gordon Sørensen Started on the cockpit. Kit includes tiny seperate rudder pedals, not sure they will even be visible.
Most of the pictures I have seen of Spitfires at rest, the elevators are always drooped down, so I seperated the elevators from the horizontal stabs and the rudder from the fuselage.
Cut off the cannons and need to putty the leading edge and fill the shell ejector shutes on the bottom the wing.
13. February at 16:10:05
Gordon Sørensen Finished the cockpit. The detail is pretty good straight out of the box. Added seatbelts of Tamiya tape.
27. February at 15:24:37
Gordon Sørensen Got the fuselage together, and attached to the wing. A lot of fiddling and some putty required. The mating surfaces of the rear fuselage/wing assembly are very thin and not a lot of gluing surface.

Robber Penguin There is another functional to mark it as double.
I marked it already, but if you see kit in search and click "+" in "actions" you can find "double" or " bad naming" buttons. Not very suitable, hope Tim will add it to FAQ
3. July at 17:29:16
Gordon Sørensen Was looking for that function, but it wasn't an option when I pressed the green "+"

Gordon Sørensen Its funny... Some of the aircraft are packed so close together (like the B-25 and D-18 or Norseman, Vampire, and Canso) while others have tons of space around them. Happily, the Sabre wasn't too crowded in with the Tutor and wasn't cordoned off so I was able to get a lot of reference pics.

Ryan Great reference shots. Will it be restored?
19. June at 01:40:11
Gordon Sørensen I learned to fly on this Stearman 32 years ago. My Dad sold it in '87. I happened to find it in pieces and for sale last year. If I had the money, I would buy it and restore it, but the best I can do is the Revell 1/48. Going to do one for my brother (Thats him flying with my mom in the front), one for my Dad (still flying at 85 years-old), and one for me.
19. June at 03:08:24
Ryan Sound like a case for for Mikey McBryan and his "plane savers" ;)

I would be heartbroken to see the plane I learned flying on in this condition. The plane I learned flying on crashed 3 years ago and I felt really sorry.

Are you doing them in that livery? That would be really awesome :)

I also have two more stearmans in my stash. :)

Richmond Why do so many modellers have multiple copies of the same kit in their stashes?
24. March at 20:15:08
Augie so we can build different schemes,, cause we're indecisive and cant choose one lol
24. March at 21:17:26
Choppa Nutta haha Augie very true !! :)
but also a second chance at building it but with less mistakes (hopefully) :D
25. March at 00:25:44
Augie Hehe well yes thats true too
25. March at 00:46:15
Richmond Thanks
25. March at 03:22:02
Gordon Sørensen Different Schemes, Different Version, or maybe we just like that airplane! I have a couple models in my display cabinet I finished in the early late 70 or early 80s. Would like to try again just to see what I could do now...
25. March at 17:10:49
Clifford Keesler I have a Academy FB-111 that was my first build, after returning to the hobby. To look at it now it looks terrible, so it will be getting tore down and given a majior face lift, with what I have learned here on scalemates over the last four years.
25. March at 22:20:59
Bryn Crandell Nice collection of both unbuilt and built Gordon. The polish holders are a good idea. May have to invest in a pair.

Łukasz Gliński If I may, I'd propose white primer :)
2. April at 19:20:05
Gordon Sørensen Yeah Lucasz, I was thinking that after the second or third coat. A little late now...
2. April at 20:51:08
Łukasz Gliński We both know it's never too late to wash away the misbehaving white paint ;)
3. April at 06:05:07
Gordon Sørensen Broke down and took Lucasz' advice....
Sanded some of the white, gave it a coat of Tamiya white primer, and then a final coat of Testors White. More or less happy with coverage now.
Resprayed the bottom in Tamiya Grey Primer.
Ready to make the fuselage windows.

Łukasz Gliński Glad to hear my advise is welcome ;) Waiting for the blue part :)
13. May at 18:37:27
Gordon Sørensen Soooo.... the blue trim is translucent. I need to redo the white/grey split on the fuselage. Right now you can see the grey through the decal, so I need to re-paint white where the blue decal sits.
One atep forward, two steps back.... And this isn't even an Amodel Avanti...
14. May at 15:49:24
Łukasz Gliński Thou shalt not take the name of the Avanti in vain ;)
