Resin parts 

The modelling a model of the TBM-3W Warner requires adding a radar, a changed lower fuselage belly profile, changed rear back profile and additional fins. For these, resin parts are available for order. 
The conversion will need some sawing of the modelparts and extensive filling with putty to close gaps and to fill air bubbles in the resin parts. 

IMPORTANT: this is model enthusiast made resin conversion set; it is not comparable with commercial company offerings. So be prepared to do some work and it is intended for experienced modellers only.

  • With the hobbyist resin pouring process, air bubbles are unavoidable. 
  • So any air bubble gaps are to be filled in the resin parts, particularly the large radar dome. 
  • Filling the holes can be done with putty or for very small holes a mixture of "baking soda" and superglue. Sand on the spot.

  • All surfaces of the resin parts were sanded smooth as well on the belly back rear fuselage back prior to fitting. This is much easier now done. 
  • Some small additional items can be made from plastic card by the modeller and the spares box. 

  •  

     

    SAFETY first: when cutting and sanding resin parts, use hand gloves to avoid skin irritation, plenty of water and a face mask to avoid inhaling resin dust.
