is it accurate and does it have the 4 blade propeller ?
any help much appreciated
there is background info on the plane, the model. and also pictures of the spru trees and decal sheets
and as you can see....3 blade prop which i thought the typhoon had anyway, not 4??
typhoon did only have 3 blades anyway (see attachment)
Hasegawa do make lovely kits, the plastic is a good quality and the details are usually superb. Also hasegawa seems to be the kits with the most after-market parts made for them so if you want to add resin, p/e, white metal or different decals im sure they can be found!
Feel free to post your own experiences and pictures as and when you like.
As for the Typhoon, I'm afraid i'm not really qualified to answer, never having had the experience of one, but there are plenty here who are!
The only Typhoon I ever built was the old Airfix 1/72nd one!!
4 Bladed Props
check and you will find this is correct.........
i will let some one else point you in the direction of a custom resin company as i have never delt with them
hope all that makes sense
hope you come to a desision. Make sure you let us know how the model comes along and post pictures!!
I am genuinely grateful of any assistance -
I am perhaps a little FANATICAL about Detail -
Rememer however the devil is in the detail
It is just that my Illustrated Encyclopaedia of Aircraft
Issue - Typhoon
had the 4 Propeller fitted -
so anyone who knows me ( I am on E-Bay )
knows I am interested in small :nono:
best wishes David
You might find this article on the old Monogram kit interesting. Scope for your own detailing maybe:
You might be also interested to know that Ultracast do a four bladed Typhoon prop that you can put on the Hasegawa kit.
and all the other Typhoon bits they produce.
THANK YOU -
It is much appreciated -
I will get cracking and order these extra detailed
items as soon as possible - I aim to have the Kit
( if my work is permitting peace and quiet )
ready in about a month of construction .
I never hurry models - a recipe for disaster ! :nono:
Patience pays -
best wishes David
She is a lovely aircraft.
i guess to make a 4 bladed prop, do what nigel has said but cut remove two of the blades off the original, then you can just make the impression, take it out, move it around, make impresion of blade in different pos....etc untill you have a mould for a 4 bladed prop!
Thanks Nigel for a first class tip for reproducing small parts quickly.
