#5644, "RE: a few noted kit corrections"
In response to In response to 18


          

OK more photo updates for today. I try to do at least 1 - 2 hours of practical modelling a day, but usually end up rsearching and reading reference instead ! lol.

Firstly the assembled windows from the previous post



Some other examples of Tom's photo etch windows.






The PE is incredibly small, and I suggest has been made to proper scale and to be as accurate as possible. unlike most custom pe kits that are made for a soecific kit so the pe fits, the Toms stuff is uncompromised and is simply generic for all 1/400 scale kits so doesnt account for the poor window design or errors on the Academy kit. Indeed most of the window frames seem to fall through the windows they are supposed to be on! also the silly part is all the windows are pretty much black/ dark behind on an unlit model so only the frame is visible and not the detail within the frame.

I did paint some frames - I masked and painted the fore bulkhead windows of b deck As the photo etch didnt look right.





compare that to the first effort done with pen from the trial kit ..



Lastly, I also shaved some of the ribs under A deck as they foul the fit with the walls underneath.



Adam
