1/48 Hobby Boss EMB-314

May 1, 2015 · in Aviation · · 8 · 3K

This is my latest project. It's the HobbyBoss EMB-314 Super . I plan to do a straight OOB build. It's my first time using photo etch, and I have to say it's not my favorite material to work with. It was a step outside my comfort zone however, and I do like the results. I just need to learn to handle it better, as the carpet monster was fed quite well during the process.

  1. Interesting. Might be worth starting a work in progress thread in Groups, so people can follow it to completion.

    Should be fun for you. BTW, photo-etch is easy...when the bits are BIG and you have 4 hands. .

  3. When I put mine together it took a lot of weight in the nose to keep it rom tail-sitting. It looks great when done, enjoy!

  4. Good-lookin' 'pit...looks to be well on the way to a super build.

  5. Following this with some interest. It's definitely a little different...

  6. Yes, it's different than the WWII aircraft I normally build. I've always admired the sleek shape of the Super Tucano, much like my wife, who is also from Brazil!

  7. This looks to be a very interesting project to follow. Looking forward to seeing further in-progress posts.
