Karis Projects 2020 - Part 1

Postby KSaarni » Mon Dec 21, 2020 4:38 pm

How was the modelling year 2020 for me?

I will send out, hopefully even on daily base all the building projects that I, at least started, in year 2020.
Excluding the two recent Mustang projects that are still going strongly on and have their own topics in SPAM.

-----

1st Project:
1:48 scale Fouga CM. 170 Magister by AMK


The year was about to start greatly. I have always liked this small French twin-engine fighter / trainer / attack aircraft from the 60's. It's elegancy and streamlined shape making it simply beautiful! My favorite!

AMK's excellent kit is truly a state-of-the-art kit, crispy details, wonderful fit & fully packed with a lot of options and goodies; PE parts, white metal parts, even a transparent fuselage halves to show off everything that can or is cramped inside it etc etc. On top of the kit, I invested also in some AM parts plus an extra decal sheet.

I came to the point in the build, that the next step would have simply been to close the fuselage and carry on. But, everything stopped, because of an unfortunate accident with Tamiya’s Extra Thin bottle falling over and soaking pretty much everything on the cutting mat. One of the victims was the tail fin of the Fouga.
A challenging task to fix it, as a lot of delicate & detailed (rised) rivets have totally been disintegrated.

The build is back in its original box, waiting for the right moment to be taken again out and hopefully finalized.

Them blue belts are very striking in that pit.
March as one, Don't look back
Odin's sons... Attack!
Unleash hell! Do not repent! Warfare grants us no lament
Let your weapons slash and tear This is no place for fear
Hold the lines! Move as one! In unity our victory's won
Our shields will form a mighty wall
United we shall never fall

Kari,

Sometimes, not always, 0000 or 000 steel wool (not sure if it goes by the same name across the pond) Will remove the glue marks without taking too much detail.
To make each build less crappy than the last one. Or, put another way, "Better than the last one, not as good as the next one!"..

Many thanks Lyle for the tip ! But I am afraid in this case would not help as unfortunately so many rivets melted away, when I almost in panic swiped off the cement.. :headbang:

A company called archer makes resin rivets on decal film in different sizes. Maybe that could save this build.

Thanks, yes, I have distantly thought of it, though I got so frustrated when it happened so the kit was forgotten. But now after 12 months time, perhaps I should, nothing to loose to shoot away a mail & picture !

Ah, thanks Clint, that is very much true. I had totally forgot that option, must investigate a little bit
