I have received the MiniArt kit from Armorama for build review. With my Heinkel 112B crossing the finishing line and with the inbox review published (see review section of the site http://armorama.kitmaker.net/modules.php?op=modload&name=Reviews&file=index&req=showcontent&id=13377), I am now ready for this challenge.
I know already is going to be a rather slow build, with no spectacular progress, because the parts count is quite big (over 1000)...
Here are the first 5 steps of the build:
... and this one is the result:
The plastic is on the soft side, very easy to gouge with a new blade. On the other hand, Tamiya extra thin works perfectly on it an you have instantly the perfect weld.
The fit is very good - I have just a couple of hairline gaps in the assembly for which the primer shall be enough - no putty needed.
The instructions look a little overwhelming but as soon you grasp the logic of the build, everything goes smooth. No errors encountered yet, with a single minor exception (part Hd6 x2) on step 5.
Detail is superb - I'm not sure if my camera makes justice.
I'll do my best to finish this build in the shortest time possible and I'm going to post regularly small updates.
