Conversion of Lynx model in 1/32 scale of Revell (Mk.88A , kit ref no 04652)
|... continued from page 3.... or to next page 5......|
The main gear legs are fine in the kit.
For the Dutch Lynx, new resin stubwings were made (see here...) with no large ECM fairings. The parts #47,48,49,50 are not required when using these.
The cover parts #53+54 will fit after some sanding.
Sometimes parked Dutch Lynxes have their main wheel at a 45 degree angle turned. If you want this, as indicated in STEP 56, cut off the tiny fitting lugs to enable turning the leg with the main wheel to 45 degrees. I kept the gear in a straight position.
Note that Dutch Lynx SH-14D had a
Radar Warning Receiver fitted at the end of the stubwing fairing. Sand
flat each resin stubwing end and fit a small circular piece of card for
the RWR. (for a very early Lynx stubwing, simply use the resin casted stubwing).
To fit each new resin stubwing, it
is required to remove the rear section of each fitting lug to get a good
fit. In the resin stubwing parts, the lug gap was partly moulded in to
help with alignment and to get a stronger joint.
Use superglue to fit the new stubwings,
fill any gaps with filler and sand smooth.
1/ remove each tailrotor blade with
a razorsaw at the inner joint near the shaft.
3/ sand of each tail rotor blade the
"cut-out" area a bit more accurate for the older style blade.
Note that the blades are mirrored on an old style tailrotor (so fit it the other way round)
4/ reduce the lengths of the aisle part #234 and #235 by about 3 mm each. This because there is a tailrotopr fairing on the top of the rotorfin fitted previously.
5/ fit the shortened aisle parts #234 + 235 thus at the OTHER side of the adapted tail rotor!
6/ fit the lever collective part #88
