A Game of Two Harts
Last build of the year. SECOND attempt at AMG's Hart for which the instructions can lead you well astray! This is quite an expensive kit to have to have two attempts not being an Eduard Dual Combo. First attempt I tried to be smart and do rigging before atatching the top wing. I used so called Ez Line (**&&££@@@ting Line). Result was complete collapse of cabane struts Learned after a battle to finish the kit except ailerons THEN rig with wire.
However there was so much CA on it by now plus the decals gave me hell I gave up.
Pictures show second attempt. This time fuselage first then apply decals to fuselage before tackling the wing. Even then I boobed bny trying to attatch the cabane first. No go. Complete wing and support it by the outer struts THEN fit cabane struts.
However, cabane struts still look crappy as too many attempts and too much CA again (see pic of Hendon Hart).However it'll have to do. Alclad for front end but somehow not getting shiny look.
I see Tome Cleaver made a nice job of this kit. There are so few of the Hart series out there which is very odd actually.
