Super Wings Series No.10
Full Review with Geoff Coughlin
Opening thoughts and the plan
To say I was excited about building this new-tool release is an understatement, the interest only increasing when browsing the contents of the box. You may want to take a look at my In-Box Browse video review.
You can never be sure when exactly a model will arrive and after starting two other new projects they have been set to one side so that I can press on and bring you a full build review of this kit as soon as possible.
• Verlinden Lock-On No.8 for the F-4E Phantom II is superb as are all their books, if you can get hold of it. This is my primary reference for the build
• Internet images.
So what’s the plan?
Quite simply to build this model out of the box as much as possible. I notice that there are no seat belts included so I’ll source those from elsewhere and maybe a very few other small touches like RBF tags? Not sure yet and a long way to go first before we need to think about such things.
OK, so on with the build…
Almost inevitably we start in the cockpit and the ejection seats are very nice multi-part assemblies. The seat top ejection handles are very delicate and I was a bit inept at cleaning up the sprue gates and so these will be replaced with thin wire later.
