I could not resist to start with the MQ-9. As the parts on the Harrier are put aside to dry, I’ve started work on the Reaper. The plastic is softer than I’m used to work with, so care is needed when removing the parts from the sprues, and specialy at cleaning things up. First part is the bottom half of the fuselage and put the wheel wells for the main landing gear in place. Then it’s on to the wings, and boy do they have a huge wingspan even for 1/72. I’ve dry-fitted the wings and the top halve of the fuselage, and it all looks fine, the overall fit is good. Before closing up I first have to add some 20 grams weight in the nose to keep it all level.
