1/72 Hornisse

stage 1 & 2
These stages deal with the construction of the lower hull and running gear. Everything fit as it should although as mentioned, there did appear to be a little flash around the front of the hull, but on closer inspection it actually seemed that this was damage when the hull was removed from the mould. A quick sanding cleaned this up. The road wheels come with inserts for the middle, which I should imagine makes painting them a lot easier, although I elected to complete the build before beginning any painting.

The rear idlers also seemed to be slightly out of true and not perfectly circular, although at this scale I decided that this did not matter and could probably not be seen when the model was finished. The tracks were just the right length, and the rear idlers can be adjusted to take up any slack, so don’t cement the idler axles until the tracks are adjusted!
