Aiming to improve the detail on Revell’s injection-molded parts, this 3D-printed set contains:
- 2 open nozzles
- 2 keyed exhaust ducts (One left and one right to ensure proper alignement of the exhaust petals and flame holder petals relative to the fuselage)
- 2 afterburner flame holders
- A set of vinyl guides to help with kit parts adjustment and re-engraving
First, correct the kit’s aft fuselage as the rear panel has the wrong shape (the aft line should be parallel to the last engraved line) and lacks rivets on the top part due to injection molding limitations. Adhesive guides are provided to make this easy 🙂
Note: Do this correction before assembling part B18, and only then assemble B18 flush with the new aft surface – otherwise it will interfere with the exhausts
Then, prepare the exhausts: prime (to remove any sign of 3D-printing), paint each part individually and assemble, using the guides on the parts to ensure correct alignement.
