Ejector pin marks on a Trumpeter kit

Recommended Posts

        Me thinks someone on the production line fell asleep. If you want practice on filling ejector pin marks, this kits for you. 1/32nd scale F4U-4

WOWZERS....those are really problematic! For most of those I'd actually opt to use very thin sheet plastic (or even strips/widths of tape) as covers to "resurface" and cover them up instead of filling and sanding. For others where you can't cover the entire surface (like those inner gear doors), I'd see if any of the Waldron punches match up, and of so, punch out a disc and use it to fill the mark. You could then use a pin to make some "rivets" around them and make them look like removable service covers; overall probably less work and faster then the tedium of trying to sand them smooth in such tight quarters. At any rate, they are a true eyesore!

Yup- been there and done that. I believe Aires sells replacement wheel wells.

At least they're consistent...they're everywhere.

Good luck.
