Yeah, the old Amodel kits were the horror ^^ Great effort of a very obscure soviet early post war project with a liquid propellant rocket engine.

Oh and thanks for reminding me to work on my vacuforming skills, a technique i am eager to master but all efforts failed so far :/

It looks a real pig of a kit, but you have made an amazing job of it Julian!

Thank you mates ,,, indeed it took quite a lot of hours filling and sanding and elbow grease ,,, 😉 . But this is the only plastic injection kit of this very plane that's easy to get.....

Not so easy to get these days. Yours beats my poor effort hands down, partly due to paint nozzle woes, my aluminium finish looks like cast iron with a pizza texture.

Superb hue differences too -- too job!

VEB Tupolev postwar Tu-2 with your shattered 4 bladed props, faired over canopy and granite hard plastic, how you bewitched, how you beguiled.
This is MUCH more like it should have been -- successful. Well done.
7. October, 05:39
Julian Herrero aka Yuri
Well ,,,, those are dogs of kit ,,, taking it to a decent std is very demanding ... so my aim is the other way round ... build it as I did in the seventies ..... more akin to the level of detail of the kit.
7. October, 16:28
Julian Herrero aka Yuri
Now I'm going a step forward and use acrylic paints ... less harmful and more good looking that the old Humbrol tins. Thanks for your comments.

Following! Very interesting subject. I really do like the 917. Part breakdown of the body looks very similar to the fujimi kit wich also spots some fitting issues. The heller kit seems to have Daytona window not opened? (The one over the windshield)
18. May, 18:22
Julian Herrero aka Yuri
Dennis ... me too ... I love the 917 ... The kit has this window marked from the inside but not opened .... You can cut the part ... but the kit (at least mine) has no clear part for that window.
18. May, 18:30
Dennis
Thats an improvement imho. I think you will not need it anyway because there where not many cars with that configuration (as far as I know).

Tried to build the fujimi 917k once and had major problems in filling and sanding the gaps of the plastic insert for that window. Even after primer, base color decal and clear coat the outlines where still visible. One of the reasons it ended up as a shelf queen...

I struggled a bit getting this thing together I remember. 😄

I like taking out the two batteries when I am not using the drill, to avoid, maybe draining the batteries, but now that I think about it, maybe it doesn't matter much, unsure.

I prefer a hand operated drill for precision, because of the risk of drilling too hard through plastic with the electrical motor.
3. May, 15:04
Julian Herrero aka Yuri
I'm very pleased with this tool .... has he right speed for plastic ... Of course for precision drilling I prefer manual tools. I had no problems assembilng the drill ... much easier that Ikea furniture 😉

As soon as I saw it in the shop I knew I had to buy it .. and build it asap. In fact it didn't even went to the stash ... went from the shop right to my workbench.
The kit is rather basic in some aspects ... no fuel tank, simplistic fuel filler cap, no clear plastic for the head-lamps .... Nevertheless the engine is quite detailed, but a some tubes and connectors missing. In fact some tubes are on the sprues but not in the instructions ,,, more anon.
Beware, gates to some parts are really tiny and prone to break ... I've just lost one windshield wiper ...

Congratulations. Not an easy kit to deal with. If we wan`t to make it better our imagination is the limit . I did mine a few years ago and I`m still looking for the right side rear view miror.

I also made one, and I think it's a very fun kit.
The orange color seems to go very well 🙂
27. April, 16:08

Yes ... the kit is really fun to build ... no major build troubles ... What's shocking for such a moder kit is all the parts it lacks ..... headlights glass it's just a flagrant missing
