GB Question
Posted by Hemi on Tuesday, February 17, 2015 4:17 PM
This is my first time participating in a group build and I have a question. As I build my Tamiya 1/32 scale kit should I take pictures and post them as I go? I purchased the new version of the kit for the D-K and F-6D thinking the kit had the early tail with no filet but I was wrong. Does anyone have an early tail they would be interested in selling Thanks John

Not sure what GB this is for, you need to hit the reply button in that GB.

But in answer, yes, post pics during the build, when ever you thing you are at a stage you think it worth sharing. Be sure to post pics of any issues with the kit, how you over came them or what you need help with, as well as normal progress pics.

Bish,

He talking about a P-51 for the Mustang GB.

John,

I usually post pics whenever I feel I've made progress enough to share, or have a question and need to show the item I'm questioning. Don't worry, you won't use up too much bandwidth. Sometimes I just post the very start and the completion.

As far as the tail for the F-6D, I don't have one, but you might want to pose that question in the Stang build or just generally in the aircraft section. The only 1/32 Mustang I have is the Hasegawa D.

I wondered why that sounded foreign to me. Wink

That's because folks like you and i lump all airplanes under the category of TARGETs.

The F-6D was the photo recon version of the D model. The tail has slight modifications, but otherwise identical. It still packed it's 6 x 50 cal punch.

Hemi,

Most definitely post pics!  It is cool to see the progress one is making on their build and it also helps with seeing what the kit looks like and so forth.  Lots of us have MANY kits in our stash and you may be putting one together that we have and was wondering how it went together, you know any fit issues, how the decals go down, a better way to do a step, etc. .  So pics and any info on how the build is going for you is great information!  So post away!
