I've been making several Fiddler's Green Ju-52s for an upcoming wargaming convention game (Barlow's Raid, in which American Tanks attack an German airfield) and I've ended up making several changes to the kit as drawn. First, I resized them (no big deal) down to 1/100 to make them fit the game scale, then cut and pasted the wing sections and flaps to make one-piece wing assemblies, and ended up doing the same to the tail surfaces. What worked in Fiddler's Green's standard 1/60 scale just didn't look right or was too fiddly in the smaller scale (for me at least -- you'll never see me doing warship models in those smaller scales). It got me wondering, though. How much will you change when you are working on a model? Is this a normal practice? I guess it's my technician background -- I'm used to following the instruction set pretty closely, though when I making things from scratch I'm all about cut and paste and multiple working models before I arrive at a final version.
