When you build a kit, do you follow the guidance in the kit, or take your own route? If it’s the latter, you may not be alone...
“If you spend time studying a sheet of instructions and you can see that parts suggested to be added early on, look likely to break off as the build progresses, you are already well on your way to finding those simple to navigate paths that well all crave”
Now that I’ve started to build the Kitty Hawk Su-17, here’s a little round-up of notes that follow on from yesterday’s introduction, this dealing with the construction of the fuselage…

“Ever since Matchbox released their 1/72 kit – complete with the same VMA-331 markings seen on this one – I’ve wanted to build a detailed model of this aircraft”
It’s easy to reach for the aftermarket lists when you need to add detail to a model, but with simple tools and materials, doing the work yourself can be far easier than you think…
“I’m not suggesting that a beginner is going to be able to build a 1:24 Hurricane cockpit from scratch as their first attempt, but they just might be able to detailed a cockpit coaming and canopy rail of a model jet, before moving on to something more challenging”
