what brought me back into modeling is that my uncle sent me a care
package with this kit inside, and it is the perfect remedy to counter
the overwhelming boredom that accompanies military life. how is this
kit to build? any major problems? i don't care about accuracy, it
looks like a Hellcat to me and that works fine. the cockpit does look
scarce for a kit this big, any recomendations? also, any tips for
building in a tiny workspace? air force dormitories, although nicer
than most, aren't exactly large.

check the squadron site for add ons to start. there are plenty.
why not make an intinerant craftsman's table? that's a few small boxes with
your supplies over which you lay a piece of posterboard for a work surface.
it will fit on a desk, the floor or even your bed. it's great because if you
need to ditch the posterboard, so? and the supplies will be half assed packed
if you knock up the co's 17 year old and get sent to moosebyte, somewhere on
the dew line.

you wouldn't happen to know if cockpit sets made for the trunmpter kit
(namely the eduard set or the avionix set) will fit in the hasagewa
kit with little or no problems? how good is czech masters?
I've built the Hase Hellcat,and it's a nice kit, even if it's not as
detailed as the never Trumpeter. I used Verlindens resin cockpit and the
instrument panel from Eduards (PE).
Basicly the kit builds pretty neat out of the box, I suggest You look a
little at the wheel wells, to me they lack a little at the rear, but a few
scraps of plastic card fixes it nicely.
If You cant find the Verlinden set or don't want to fork out the amount,try
the Eduard PE if You can find that, it spices up that cockpit nicely.
If room is an issue You can fold the wings ;^)
i'm 1c131 at Tyndall AFB in Panama City, FL. how about you?
I'm a senior flight surgeon in the Wisconsin ANG. Good luck in your AF
career- it's probably a lot warmer at Tyndall than in Wisconsin today! Not
familiar with 1C afsc- what career field?
i'm an air traffic controller so i deal with flight med all the time
actually. gotta love the weather down here, thats for sure, although
it dipped below freezing last night. winter in northern florida isn't
what i was expecting,
