Nice Mark.
I heard this pretty nice kit.
Yours is looking pretty spiffy already.

it is a nice little kit. Far superior than the old Airfix kits. Parts have more detail, not as chunky as the older kits. Compared to the RAF RE8 i'm building concurrently, i'd build another one of these any day.

Typical Dragon Aircraft kit ... problems with alignment and gaps ... some fits are tight, others a loose ... stuffed the nose with fishing weights and it still wants to sit on its tail
18. December 2020, 07:55

Oh... I see SH's seems like a better option. I have this same kit, but am thinking of changing it. My canopy comes in smoky color 🙁

Good job so far... Following!
18. December 2020, 19:30
Mark Crees
yeah, i've got a smokey canopy as well. you'll find the main wheel well is not a good fit, you'll need some stripe styrene to fill it out ... the nose gear bay is undersize so you'll need to becareful positioning it in ... the Jet engine covers don't have any keys or tabs to position it, so having it open will be a challenge ... the glue the inlet cover and exhaust cover into place after you've glued the covers in position. I did it the other way and have to sand back the covers to make it fit. there are large gaps where the inlet cover meets the fuselage.

28. December 2020, 09:00
Mark Crees
woohoo, finished. The photo etch on the exterior and wheel well were a challenge. small parts that go flying off the twizzers. Lost the loop piece and had to replace it with some wire. Overall, i'm satisfied with the build. The hardest part were the photo etch. I think they are too small to use and if you have bad eye sight, it adds to the challenge.

I'm part of the Gundam Australia Forum. Each year, we choose a kit and paint colours for the Qld Hobby and Model Expo held in Queensland Australia. We target a category for the group to enter in. Next year we are targeting 2 different categories with 2 different kits. SF103 (Sci fi Modified) is the target for this kit. Its decked out in Gunze H331, Tamiya XF-80 and XF-58. Using the WWII german camou schemes as a basis for the paint scheme. Adding some weapons from the Hasegawa Weapons kit.

FYI. Looks like you're well along on your build. But for those of you contemplating this kit. The (My) solution to fixing the gaps where the wings halves come together, just inside the leading edges, and not destroying the raised detail is Liquitex Modeling Paste. It's acrylic, so you can wipe the excess off with a wet cotton swab. Alas, a lot of cotton swabs. The Modeling paste dries hard, and grips the plastic firmly, but you must wipe it away soon after application, it's not like green stuff, don't let it dry and sand it smooth.
19. December 2020, 09:46
Mark Crees
thanks mate ... i always have problem with the wing seams ...
19. December 2020, 10:18
A.J. Madison
I should add, multiple applications of the modeling paste may be needed. Again, not like green stuff, so if bubbles or gaps in the fill appear after drying, just re-apply, re-clean.
19. December 2020, 18:19
playtime 222
How does is compare to the Vallejo stuff?
19. December 2020, 19:23
A.J. Madison
Sorry, never used the Vallejo fillers. I only use the Modeling Paste for difficult builds, like the Starfury, and the AMT Enterprise-E primary hull. When I first tried the Modeling Paste, I was dubious, it was like thick (acrylic) paint, but it wiped off nicely, and smoothed out like a modeler would want. I fully expected it to fall off the model the next day, but it stuck hard.
20. December 2020, 03:32
playtime 222
(Sorry to hijack a thread a little) I tried the Vallejo on a step on an SA-2. It didn't sand well so I vowed to only use it for cracks e.g. wing roots in future and not sand it. So I suppose my question is, can you can you sand it?
