Conversion of Lynx model in 1/32 scale of Revell (Mk.88A , kit ref no 04652)
|... continued from page 2.... or to next page 4......|
The tailboom as in the kit is for Lynx version that have a NON-folding rear tail end. All Dutch Lynxes have a folding rear tail end with the tailrotor. The kit parts need some slight work here to achieve this. Look carefully at photo's such as in the Dutch IPMS Walkaround.
First, start with removing the bigger raised surface detail at both tailboom parts #218 + 219.
The antenna's #220 are also on a SH-14D, look different with more round bended shapes and they are also positioned more to the rear.
The raised details on the tailboom
is also much less for a Dutch Lynx, so sand flat the boom.
Next, we continue with the rear folding tail end.....
Than, remove the rear end / tail fin.
Open up the cooling grill. Also remove
the bulged fairing, note seen on old stye tailrotors. Close with card and
fill and sand.
The Dutch SH-14D has a folding rear tail. So very prominent is are the linking hinges at the outside and the details both at left and right sides. Make from card, rod and putty.
To adde strength to the joint, a piece
of sprue was used as linking pin.
The door windows look about 1 millimeter too large, so by painting the frame edge a bit broader, the look can be improved.
