Today I woudlike You to present building of my new model - PZL-Mielec jet trainer: TS-11 Iskra (Spark) from WAK in scale 1:33 (no. 6-7/2020 - no. 184)
Few years ago i made prewious version of this same model/project from Renova in Radom Air Show colors.
New version is "upgraded" by adding simple cockpit and some frame modification to put cocpits inside fuselage. We can made this model in 2 wariants: one like elier version in RENOVA, or in new with cocpits.
I have very mixed feeling about this model
WAK model present attractive 4 color "NAVY" camouflage, but IMO printed colors are to dark (maybe blue is OK). In nature, the colors are strong and intense, in the model they looks faded. In worse lighting is small difference between dark gray and green - both colors come out "dark". IMO this is biggest MINUS of this model.
Next minus is that some parts printed elier on thin paper in this model are printed on cardboard - I'll see how it turns out
About building models: for the first cockpit frame and the cockpit recess element itself
When I cut out cockpit element I cut it out with small joint tabs, but after gluing it to frame, I decide to cut them out
