Great stuff Andrew. I'm thinking you are going to have to get the dremel out for umpteen rounds that the Germans bounced off this thing?

Hi Andrew,

nice built sofar, your moving along much faster then I am! I have tried to achieve the torch cut effect on a spare part off sprue but It looked nothing like your attempt (good!)

I seemed to cut much to much plastic, how did you create the small cuts exactly? Could you please explain a bit more?

any furthwer tips would be much appreciated, thanks anyway for the pics sofar, krg Wouter

Sorry forgot to ask this; the bump stops on my kit had exactly the same mold slip (I have had this on every trumpeter kit sofar, guess it is the price to pay!) I just sanded them down, looks fine now.

Mine don't lay flat "to the hull side". How did you resolve this, I cannot identify the plastic that is hindering this.....?

Sorry for my weird English, I am a native dutch speaker!

krg again Wouter

Is there really a differance between the KVI and -8 fenders? I'm wondering if many of the -8 are rebuilds? Dan
