Actually I am at a bit of a loss here then because the the top section of the wing was only that length, I have cut none off it? I have a spare but that is the same size as well? I will have to scratch build one...

The supports aren't perendicular to the cross piece, they are at an angle

Pity you can't add a bit to the bottom and reshape them, rather than start again.

G'day Russell,


Another thing I thought I would mention is the really exagerated mould part lines on the Tamiya figures. I had the same problem when I did mine, but I spent a bit of time removing them so that they weren't that noticeable. A lot can be easily scraped off with a sharp blade, then finish with files.

It looks good Russ :-))
I bet there are more Tamiya pit crews on model boats
than there are on race dioramas 8)

I know that several of my boats are purely crewed by Tamiya pit crews!
Lovely job Russ :-))
