Short Run Kit: WK 1/72 Heinkel He70
I don't remember how I ended up with this kit and I'm not familiar with WK models. The plastic was hard reddish brown with a rough surface just like early MPM kits. Maybe MPM made the molds for the kit. It did sit on the to do pile in the back of my bench for years. I had started the model and sanded it. What kept me from building it was the coke bottle canopy. So there it sat for years.
A couple of years ago I decided to build all my kits that had been sitting on the back burner. I brought out my Mattel Vac-U-Form machine and wasted lots of clear sheets trying to get a decent copy of the canopy. I painted the canopy one frame at a time. I did learn, and here's a tip for cutting out vac-form canopies from the sheet, is to use thin Tamiya vinyl tape to run around the base of canopy and slowly and lightly score the plastic with an Exacto knife until it comes loose of the sheet. The tape prevents accidental cuts into the canopy itself. I could not figure out the landing gear at all, and to top it off some struts were short shot as can be seen in one of the photos.
Comparing this kit to the Matchbox version I think Matchbox captured the outline much better. It is painted in RLM70-71-65. So here is WK's kit #1 of the He70
