Halinski3-4/2004 D3A1 (VAL)

Hello guys,

After a long time finally I managed to get myself to start this model by Halinski, I know this is not the one form the easiest models but so far the progress goes well, (considering this is the first plane model after long time) As I said so far everything fits well the middle of fuselage inner side fits beautiful. Here are some pictures following the progressHalinski3-4/2004 D3A1 (VAL)

HEllo Barbarossa,

looks superb !

The Val must be one of the most challenging models available, I am glad that you started to build it.

I will follow your thread with great interest !

Hi to you all

Today I was on standby but fortunately the crew control didn't call me to do any flights, so therefore of course since early hours of today's morning I manage to finish the left side of inner side fuselage, now only waiting for some metal parts (color drying) and hopefully in the afternoon I start with assembly this segment uniting the left center and right side......

Ok so the both sides are on so far everything fits as it should, however I was trying (dry) to fit outer skin to cover the middle part and it seems that it wont fit as at the bottom there is a gap approximately 2-3 mm wide, no matter how I am looking everything is in its place ( up to now progress) so I am getting slightly worried where is the problem or what i did wrong. I also noticed that same problem with Halinski's model of Focke Wulf which Jorge Schulze experienced similar problem (I am guessing by his saying that it took a lot of patient to fit those parts)

So guys any advice? Thank you in advance

Right lads, i took dramatic action: the very back wall of the cockpit was too large to fit the outer skin so I decided to sand it to the shape allowing outer skin slides onto it, however problems don't stop there (I was really surprised building the cockpit that everything was fine but don't fool yourself this is a polish model =). Now I glued both parts of outer skin before definitely fixing it, now solving problem one problem leads into another and it is no matter that I checked correctness of all parts prior to gluing ( and they fitted well the outer skin is not corresponding with the vertical axis (i build the rudder part of fuselage and the vertical axe is not 90 degrees as it should be, never mind this can be fixed however now thinking what to do with the outer skin and how to fit it to the main body and at the same time be sure that all work that will follow will correspond with the action taken.....will see later on this week

And what do you exactly mean by your comment about "polish model"?
There is nothing wrong with pointing to mistakes in the kit but I think you are going a bit too far generalizing in this manner...
Yes, I'm Polish and I'm offended by this.

Ok I see your point and also agree that polish models are the best on the market, I only say that the earlier published ones hiding considerable amount of small errors and by current price tags all editors should take great care by eliminating them before hitting the market that's all......
