Bloch MB 152 - MPModel - 1:33

Hello aviation friends

My next project is going to take off again.

I will try my hand at the Bloch 152 MB from MPModel, because this is my first model from this publisher.

On four sheets of paper there are 360 parts in neat print and three pages of construction sketches.

With great anticipation for upcoming tasks and best regards
Kurt

Good luck with this project. I recently attempted this same kit, albeit in electronic download format. It got off to a bad start, with some of the cockpit framing not being sized correctly to fit the laser-cut frame set. I burnt out on the project relatively quickly and set it aside. I hope you don't have similar issues with the printed kit.

Good luck with this one, Kurt.

The MB 152 was a good-looking airplane.

That's some fine rolling, Kurt! I suspect all those Sherman parts will make all other paper models simple for you!


Cheers,
Dan

Hi Dan , oh no not all is so simple for me

Glue the two rails for the pilot's seat to the floor and insert the dashboard ... in the middle at the front

Install frames 6 and 7 ... Glue parts 9A and 9B to part 8 and frame D ...

... Insert part 9 in between ... Frame D closes the front of the cockpit

Sincerely
Kurt

Man, that panel print really leaves a lot to be desired. The build quality doesn't though. Good job on the edging.

Looking good Kurt. The model's quality is a bit like Orlik or Modelik, certainly not poor! Instrument panel print is indeed what you would classify as 'mwaw, could be better". Good luck with this one and I wonder, how many models are you working on simultaneously???

Cheers,
Erik

Hello Erik ,

I am allways working on three models side by side because i like the variety
and the instrument panel is ok because you canīt see it later

The cockpit interior walls are well preliminary ... then various parts for the cockpit

... distribute them in the inner walls ... and stick them on the cockpit ...

... so the cockpit is locked

Sincerely
Kurt
