Hi all , after all that selecting I've decided on the Humber Scout car Normandy version with the twin Vickers for the Recon GB. 3 months to build it so very unlikely it will be overly detailed. Perhaps an OOB with some tidying up.
Hi, while I was waiting for the He219 bit parts assembled to cure, I snapped some shots of the sprue...
Every sprue tree including the individual parts were sealed just like the wheels. Wheels came in two types of threads and are rubber...
The Humber is an odd shaped vehical with the body not exactly symetrical and the parts aren't reconizeable so I'll need the destruction sheet in putting it together.
The parts sprue with the ordnance also comes as a separate set as I have one. Oh dear there is PE and there is no numbering for the transparent parts which is the windshield and tubing that I guess is for the engine piping.
Overall parts are crisply molded, seamlines minimal. Next to check the fit. I can't recall if I had built a Bronco kit before so this will be an adventure.
I have a magazine that features the build of this kit which I will read over again...if I can get it to the same level I'd be very happy.
I'm in Richard, had to push Steve up a bit on the bench seats you've hired in.
Never seen one before, looks to be some very small parts as well.
Don't think there's any worry of you not producing something as good as that magazine.
As for a magazine article I have a magazine article relating to my current build and my gripe is that the article doesn't mention the fit problems. Great article and the finished model looks superb but I just felt the builder had looked at the kit through rose tinted glasses.
John, mind you I'll need lab magnifyers soon. The seats are arranged wigwam fashion, besides the refreshments, a peace pipe will be passed around to check misbehaving. Jim, I know what you mean. I normally take a pinch of salt on these reviews as modelers tend to overlook their experience in aircraft modelling skipping the difficult assemblies as an everyday thing. Also the level of their craftsmanship perhaps passes these abnormallies as the usual easy solved issues. What I can't stand are manufacturers stating their state of the art processing and boxing as premium but neglect the same fit issues.
Anyway gripe over...now the destruction sheet.
I have snapped just a few pages but it's pretty precise apart from the clear parts numbering...
