Rockford Posted February 2 Share Posted February 2 (edited) This is my offering for the GB. It's your usual AMT mix of the good and the bad. Paint and colour schemes seem a long way off, there's just a big list of things to fix first. I decided to go for this rather than the Monogram kit because the overall proportions are better. If you look at the Monogram the cab greenhouse is far too big and the wheels are dwarfed in the massive front fenders. The wheels on the AMT don't look right but that can be fixed by adding Monogram wheels. Also, the AMT has two air cleaners, the Monogram only one. The fuel tanks are more accurate on the AMT whereas the Monogram are just their generic renditions. How far I intend to go with this is unknown at this point, let's just say my usual adjustments. First off the front windows are the wrong shape [square at the top outer corners!] and have no seal detail around them and that's one of the main things that identifies a W900 for me, so I shaped the top of the openings with a round file and added the "rubber" using 1mm square strip and shaping it at the corners. I tried shaping the strip gradually but I found the adhesive caused it to crack and tear so I opted for the sections at angles and will shape them. I'll double up at the corners to give me space for the arc. Edited February 2 by Rockford Text corrected 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
