I made a boo boo

Post by SaadSaeed »

I thought i was buying THIS:

But it turned out to be THIS:

And this:

The company name is also Welsh Models not Welsh Kits or Welsh build-your-own-thing. This kit is for uber geeks with proper cutting tools, assembling and painting skills etc. which is not an easy task for newbies like me so its going back. Though i did consider for a moment painting it into a green tail with white letters and you know what im thinking already. :wink: But i'll leave that challenge onto someone else.

Also made another boo boo which i'll post about later after i have the guts to explain myself. I think being away from family is turning me into an addictive internet shopper. :oops:

That is 1:144 scale model as written on the diagram. Take the challenge yourself and try it in PIA (Pashmina livery)! If I would have that kit, sure I will try my best!

Raihan right its 1:144 so for a fokker that is slightly big. I was fooled by that picture and didn't pay attention.
Yaar i would have but like i said its for advanced modellers. The parts of the model cannot be separated from the rest of the plastic sheet other than with hot knife or some special blade. Then it has to be held together with glue as it is not snap on. Ive had my share of modeling these things. Did a really huge imperial star destroyer from star wars. Took me 3 days to put it together as it was a medium difficulty kit.
I have 30 days to return it back so will think about it but yeh too much work. Also no stickers available for pia livery. I'd have to bet on a 747 or 310 decal to extract tail and logo and dont know if they will fit.

You need a sharp blade pen to separate each part from the sheet.

You can ask Haroon (Valkyrie) for help, if you want to build this kit otherwise you have the choice to return.
