What happened in photo 37? The paint on the engine was sanded off.

Thank you for your interest and your words! And for all those liking, of course!
I was not satisfied with the result of the sanding and filling respectively, so I went back to the start. The front parts of the turbines are not from the kit but were replaced by a resin detail set - a decisive improvement. However, the integration of these different parts was a bit tricky.

A stylish aircraft in perfect presentation. Flawless finish without weathering. I agree with Bill.

That's really nice! I didn't know there was a Canadian B-47 until now.

I looked in the Sanger box when it arrived on my doorstep and it scared the hell out of me. This is an amazing result! Thanks for giving me hope. Happy face.

Great to see all the interest guys. Like I said I won't be doing much extra on this one. The detail is very light, already the engine pods aren't the best fit. The decal sheet is the skimpiest I've ever seen!. It's just gonna be a plain silver paint, wheels up hang from the ceiling thing. Just a 'quickie". But it is a pretty historic plane.
Wilky, I also have the Valom B-45 in 72nd and it's pretty small compared to this beast. It was a long-range, six-engined, turbojet-powered strategic bomber designed to fly at high subsonic speed and at high altitude to avoid enemy interceptor aircraft. The primary mission of the B-47 was as a nuclear bomber capable of striking targets within the Soviet Union. [Wikipedia] Wingspan of 116 ft, 107 ft long compared to the b-45s 89 ft wing & 75 ft length.
It's a pretty large model, gonna be challenging to paint!!

Overall I was disappointed with the fits in this kit. I guess I had higher expectations, as I thought Hasegawa was touted to be "top of the line", up there w/Tamiya! I was sorely disappointed !!!!!!
It's an older raised panel line kit. I could tell right off that the fits would be an issue, so I decided not to put much extra time with extra detailing.
But, it looks pretty good hanging from my ceiling, I won't complain too much!
Next up is to get started on the stagecoach kit.
I've been putting together 2 RC kits so they'll be ready for Christmas for my grandson [and me!]. So as soon as I get that all finished up I'll get going on the stage. Can't Wait !!!!!!!!!!

You'll probably have your Coach finished before I have mine halfway through.
Most of my time is spent waiting for the wood glue to dry

Will follow with great interest!

We'll see wilky!! lol
Thanks guys. Somebody should make a new mold kit of this plane. Would be a great kit!

Looks like they'll just continue chucking it in a new box and catching out some more unsuspecting modellers
7. October 2020, 04:12
Robert W Martel
Yup, wilky. it's not a "great" kit !! But the only game in town. lol
