1/72, 1/32 or 1/35 would have been better scales.

Hi All

Now that the Police Apache is complete I can get back to this one.

The tail fins are finished as is the radiator/oil cooler intake. I was hoping to mount the wing tip wheels last but soon realised that I had to attach them to the tail fins in order to line every thing up (this has been a constant theme throughout this build). These are all attached now and it is time to construct the tail assembly.

The top fin is in place, I am going to let this dry thoroughly  so it will become a template to line up the other three fins.

When all this is done it will be time to find out if it will sit on its tail as intended (audience gasp :o)

Tune in next week folks...............  ::)

Thanks for looking ....

A year and half later, I pick this up again -

The white, or otherwise unpainted portions of the build are the results of the last couple of weekends. I had the bad luck/good fortune to pick up an Airfix BE 2c early last year, mainly because another modeling acquaintance had mentioned it came with Le Prieur rockets. Got home and discovered that the box was missing the pilot sprue, so I got in touch with Hornby's USA, and they very kindly sent me an entire new kit. The rockets, to my mild exasperation, were molded to a set of struts, but with a little trimming, they were just fine for the Scout. More about the build after a bit - got to get started on the work day.  ;)
