Alright, found time to work on my AH-6 model! And what a pain in the booty!!! First gripes on this kit coming up...
I started assembly on what turned out to be the engine mounts. If you buy this kit and want to do the engine, get yourself a drink beforehand to ease the pain. The instructions are vague on how and where parts go together in this area. It looks great now, but believe me there was head scratching and colorful language utilized.
Another thing is that some locator pins are molded directly to the sprue and removing excess plastic is an exercise in tool dexterity. Oh, and in some cases, such as part C11, the locator holes are missing.
UUUUGGGGHHHH these Chinese kits, i swear... where is the Quality Assurance???😡
Part A43 has a hole where it shouldn't be so i had to fill it with putty.
So, painting of the engine/firewall area should be interesting.
Last but not least, a mold line exists at the bottom of the fuselage area, conveniently going across or between some detail. GAH!!!
@kriegs_modelling if you do get this kit, you've been warned LOL
I need to do a Tamiya or Hasegawa kit after this one just to remember there are kits that are engineered well and have quality instructions.😒😐😑
