Makes me want to build a Hind. :+1:

My problem is that the Trumpeter 1/35 kit, like many others, doesn’t have the correct fuselage twist.
A vertical line through the centres of the two windshields doesn’t pass dead center between the two engine openings

True, but most people don’t even know about this and others can’t see it. To me, it isn’t a showstopper. Sometimes close enough is good enough. You have to work with what is out there.

Everyone has their own thing about a subject, to me that is pretty big miss. Iconic in the look, like the Hellcat smile or anyone of a dozen other subjects. You mess that up and the subject doesn’t look right. I do get your point, at least in 1/48 and 1/72 Zvezda has people covered.

I agree, see above. Lots of new items hanging off that bird I have never seen before. Great find. :+1:

hmmm, 1/48 might be something …
Thanks for the heads-up!

Just build it upside down, the problem will be less noticeable :



That’s for the Revell kit. :joy::joy::joy:

Ha Ha :neutral_face:
Too much trouble doing all the dents, scratches and broken pieces

Knowing is half the battle and now it cannot be unseen. :joy:

Yep. Ignorance can be blissful and that which has once been seen can not be unseen …
Luckily I got the information before I bought that Trumpeter 1/35 kit.

The sadists dream: Sneak up on a proud model builder and his recently finished masterpiece and say “You know there is a serious shape flaw on that kit, don’t you?” :smiling_imp:
