Hi all when I had mine I totally rebuilt it and whilst i was at it i stripped all the paint off the engine casings polished it and engraved it, so I thought I would do the same with this kit. being 1/8 of the original size it obviously wont be as elaborate but will give the general idea.





roughly pened on



this is the tool of choice


oops didnt work too well




I think my next attempt will be heated scribe .

Well I am totally peed off this was advertised as new and unstarted. Someone has gone ahead on the instructions and started the frame, only they've glued it all wrong (and used plenty of it) I've tried getting it apart but it's like it's welded together, and even if I get it apart I'm not sure I can reposition it where it should be, so this is another one that's on hold, funny its another Heller kit.

Hi all well I've had to apologise to the seller it was my 10 yr old nephew visiting my missus with his mum he decided to have a go, that's what you get from encouraging youngsters, he is now banned from my model room unless I am there.

hi all well back on this again, I've decided not to engrave the engine as I cant find a way of doing it that I like.
