Trumpeter 1/48 Seafang
This is the definition of relaxed build. Low part count, fantastic fit, adequate detail.
The only issue worth mentioning is the ill fitting of the canopy in the open position. Basically it’s as if it was designed to remain closed. It needs trimming and clever positioning if one wants to display it open, and still I’m not too happy with the result.
My only improvements were p.e. seat belts, holow barrels and exhaust, and a blanking plastic in the coolers.
I decided to paint the strips rather than use the decals and I think it was a good call as the decals are somewhat fragile due to their minuscule thickness.
Overall, a very enjoyable build!
