Roden 1/48 T-28B Trojan WIP

I've been working on this off and on.   The engineering is pretty nice albeit different from anything else I've built.  Got the fuselage buttoned up - Eduard interior bits and quickboost resin engine still under development.

 

 

Thanks,

John

How is the engineering different than any other kit? I have a Roden Staggerwing in my stash. What would I be up against compared to Hasegawa or Tamiya or Monogram? Just curious.

OK. On the bench:

I have one of these kits too that I haven't started. Interior cockpit very well done. Please keep coming with the details of this build.

The fuselage assembly and forming of the wing root is a bit different.  In the instructions below, part 22B joins to the belly of the fuselage forming the flillet, wingroot and the front of the fuselage doesn't close, rather each side cements to the edge wheel well of the wheel well on the front of 22B.  Fit nice once I figured out what was happening ;)

Thanks,

John

I don't imagine that approach will apply to my Staggerwing kit but that is certainly a novel way to mate the wing with the fuselage. Thanks, Keavdog.
