  • The engine from "HI-Tech" kit is thrown in the trash.I made it in two parts to be able to easily put the binding that connects the two parts. The lengths are calculated from the plan with more or less accuracy ... Ditto for the general shape of the engine block.
  • I remade the cylinders entirely with evergreen plastic, I could not stick the small parts cleanly with superglue on the resin parts, and their foot was too short. It was long and painful ...
  • Welds are plastic yarn stuck to the liquid adhesive and crushed with the back of the tweezers
  • I redid rivets with "surfacing" and with a stencil. If it does not work I will use rivets decals but it's not cheap ...
  • The stencil used on the flank are thinner and are pierced with a needle in an aluminum foil (food tray). Once pierced I sand a little stencil to remove the bulges around the holes. as the holes have a rounded shape.

Thank you.Fishing wire for the wing. The others are plastic stretched. The flat ones are evergreen plastic sheets cut into strips.

Interesting that I was aware of the recoil-less small canon but not the aircraft itself! Amazing work, truly! May I ask for more information on how you made your T handle fire extinguisher? Almost every one of my 1/35th military US vehicles is missing its' Pyrene fire extinguisher.

Thank you! T handle fire extinguisher is two pieces of plastic, one stretched, the other flat glued together. The shape of the flat part is made with the scalpel, the ends rounded with the sandpaper (if I remember correctly ). Regards.
