Yes, it's me again. :twisted: After months of only being able to work on very small paper models (mostly Stukas) due to a shoulder impediment, enough improvement has been achieved to move on to better and bigger things!:grin: So this week I've been really thrilled to get back into 1:33 scale. I decided to have a go at the Maly Modelarz JU-87G. What a deal this one was (I thought at the time of purchase!); three models for the price of one (and a cheap one at that!). So I started with the Fiesler manned version of the V-1; View attachment 12050 This went together quite well, with the exception of one ill-fitting part. Simple and fun! I decided to move on to the the next in the set, The Bachem Natter; View attachment 12051 This also went together well enough, with the exception of a couple of ill-fitting parts (one was horrible). But I really enjoyed it. The MM models have a minimal level of detail with a maximum level of enjoyment IMHO. Armed as I was with a false sense of security, I decided I was fit to tackle the larger and more detailed main focus of the set, the JU-87 Stuka, my favorite modeling subject since I was but a tadpole. I have to say that this model is the most ill-fitting kit of any I have built so far (well over a hundred and fifty at least). At first I thought I just wasn't paying attention or rushing too much, but then as I tried my best to make ends meet (literally ) I realized the kit had to bear some of the blame as well. View attachment 12052 I can't tell you how much I struggled to get the two edges of the underwings to meet (the white centerline between the wings that diverges at the back!). It's not that it's a terrible kit; I'm really liking it overall. It's just that it's a lot more work to make things fit than I thought it would be. I had recently built the earlier MM JU-87 B Trop model, and while it's nowhere near accurate and is a simpler and cruder design, it was an absolute joy to build and well designed. I foolishly thought this one, as it was a later designed kit, would be even easier. WRONG!! Anyway, the kit DOES build into a JU-87G...well, so far; View attachment 12053 It's not terribly accurate; the colors are all wrong; many of the parts don't fit particularly well; the quality of the paper...well, the less said about that the better. I actually prefer the earlier MM fibrous rough paper or the later, nicer stuff. I cannot get this stuff to take an even curl no matter what I do and the ends split continually. Having said all that, I really like this kit for what it is. Klunky, funky paper modeling fun. And it feels great to be making models "of size" again! :grin: Hopefully, I'll get this one done during the week and on to a better fitting kit! Chris PS. I also have to take "some" of the responsibility for any flaws in construction . I really don't have the patience for paper modeling, but I really do enjoy it!
