This is a super build, and I'm glad for your notes when I come to build mine. Was the rest of the kit good?
29. May, 22:35
Wouter Roerdink
Yes it was one of the best kits I've ever built! But make sure to read the instructions carefully. Especially in the field of drilling holes. I forgot to drill out holes for thee trimtab actuators. On the tail they are indicated, but not on the wings. And it is better to drill out a hole for the adf, which is not indicated. And the aerial wires are connected to a small stub on the adf, which you have to add yourself.

To built a Halifax in scale 48 is one thing, but to built a FM kit another one! Chapeau, its a clean and perfect built made out of an undoubtly primitive and rough kit. The result proves a huge amount of patience and endurance.

Using the amazing Scalemates database, I was able to check the origin of Revell 04394. It's the Matchbox kit, which is a good thing if you're fussy about your wing nacelles. :)

Well...The engines, props and undercarriage are all attached now. I've some gap filling to do, but otherwise, I'm looking at masking and priming PDQ.

how are u dealing with bomb bay doors ?
19. January 2013, 11:01
Kelly Wellington
First, closed, not open.

I assembled as directed, starting at the port side and working toward the starboard side. I got all four pieces glued into place before I realized that piece number three, the starboard bottom panel bowed upwards and in to the bomb bay.

*sigh*

After cogitating from some long while, I finally inserted the tip of a fine Xacto knife between the bottom panel and the side panel at the point of the apex of the bow of the bottom panel and levered it up into the position where I thought it should be. I then applied copious quanities of 'clear-part glue' to between the panels, while the Xacto knife remained in place, with its handle taped to the starboard wheel. After the clear glue (the kind for 'making' glass windows) dried, I untaped the Xacto handle and extracted the blade. I'll have to do a bit of sanding along that panel line on the bomb bay doors, but it doesn't look too bad at all and it no longer bows up into the bay itself.

I have a picture of the knife in place, but I haven't uploded it yet.

19. January 2013, 14:48
Kelly Wellington
Now uploaded. I've started sanding on the excess glue and it comes off just fine. I'm okay with the results, but I'm not a detail perfectionist.

Well, it's not like I would have known the difference. But then, I didn't even know that there was a new Revell kit.
28. December 2012, 13:42
Kelly Wellington
Okay...I've got 'whites'. A couple of them. But have I got the 'right white'? Well, anywhere near the 'right white'? I dithered with this on the D0-24, too, and finally decided on a 'light gray', which looks great. But, then, when I got the Dutch decals, I found that they used a 'milk white', with a tint of yellow to give it that 'butterfat cast'.

I'm leaning towards non-spec white, but I have to admit that I haven't even checked the MM line of military colors to see if they've 'lined it out', as it were.
30. December 2012, 16:26
Kelly Wellington
Okay...Now I'm disgruntled. I'm dealing with the undercarriage, since it is my intent to assemble as 'wheels down'. The back bracing for the wheels down position, presumably the hydraulic equipment to push the wheels down and into place, are quite thin and very fragile pieces. And they placed the sprue attachments for these pieces ON the tiny insert tabs. AND they molded them in two separate pieces which need to be glued together. I've broken, and reglued while still on the sprue, one of these fragile pieces. The tabs do not fit nicely into the well-defined holes on the gear holding the rotating tyres, thanks to the excess plastic of the sprue attachments. Trimming that excess off promises more broken pieces. I'm a bit flummoxed as to how I'm expected to assemble this....
