Bug Scale Bags

Here's a few from the bench.

 

The 1/72 AZ-Model Martinsyde F.4 Buzzard is almost completed. A bit more rigging, some major touch ups and it's done.

Here's the 1/72 Czech Master Nieuport 29 undergoing basic shaping-filling-sanding. My example, the fit was less than ideal, along the lines of a Merlin kit.

Lastly, continuing work on the Czech Master Armstrong Whitworth FK.10. The fit on this kit was far superior to the N.29. The only major issue has been the second wings down were a bit short and required some lengthening. The marked position of the interplane strut slots were off quite a bit as well. This was a bit disappointing more in the fact that the slots for the single piece interplane struts were not molded in, just simply marked on the wings, requiring quite a bit of patience to get them cut out properly and in position. I have to say, the resin in this kit was far more forgiving than others I have built. It isn't near as brittle as other I have worked with.

You're really a glutton for punishment aren't you? :smiley2: Not only do you build short-run kits, but you build them in 1/72 AND have to rig them too! I look forward to seeing the completed builds!
