HI Chris,

This is a very interesting build, and the fact that you mention some comparison with the KK version. I have recently purchased the KK model and thought it looks quite detailed already. Halinski issued a Buffalo in Dutch East Indies air force livery, back in the early nineties and out of curiosity I bought that kit some years ago and started it in a dull moment. Stopped after a few frustrating moments, had expected much more from it based on the name Halinski. The fit was poor and the choice of the designer to attach the skins to the formers of the internal structure is simply a recipe for disaster. It was a simple kit in terms of number of parts and details and the version you are building is by far more detailed by the looks of it! Good luck and enjoy your new surroundings.

Unfortunately my post of last week didn't survive the upgrade...

Cheers,
Erik

Thanks, Eric.

Work on the fuselage continues slowly. The aft cockpit deck had to go on, because the bars that hold the seat connect to it. At some point very soon I will have to attach one or the other inner cockpit skin, because as I said previously, the forward and aft cockpit sections don't attach directly together in any meaningful way. The two sections have to be fixed in position relative to each other in order to get the length of the elevator linkage correct. The rudder pedal assembly attaches only to the inner skins as well. This will be tricky.

Whilst browsing the Internet for some photo resources, I found this insane example of what our Polish friends can (and do) accomplish with one of these kits. Expect one of my models to look like this in, oh, say ... never.
