Trumpeter 1/35 SA-6 ‘Gainful’

After much test fitting, grinding and some minor repairs, I’ve managed to fit the scratchbuilt cabin into the SP Designs hull;

I had to get the Dremel out again as the SP Designs hull features some angles and blocks that needed removing before the cabin would sit properly;

I also seperated the sides of the cabin from the rear bulkhead so that I could trim them to fit better. The wiring was reattached to where it all was originally, a new piece of styrene was cut for the right side of the cabin where I went too wild with the Dremel and ended up with a hole and the left side was filled where I did the same.

On the whole I’m pretty pleased with the outcome as I’ve saved all my work, all I need to do now is make the instrument panel for the left side, make some seats and the steering mechanism and that will be the interior done more or less. I still need to get a couple of projects for The Modelling News off the bench first and then maybe restart this project but my curiosity about how I was going to do this is now satisfied.

I've been a modelmaker for a verrry long time and still show no signs of growing out of it after 50 plus years. I mainly build tanks, aircraft and paint figures but generally do whatever takes my fancy whether it's historical, Science-fiction, a 'what-if' or because it has pretty colours and looks nice. I'm hoping that you find my blog interesting and useful, particularly if building a model that I have built and documented here.
