A&A Model (a Modelsvit imprint) Piaggio Hammerhead UAV is a new release, and as soon as it was announced I wanted one. I know knothing about it, but it ws just one of those cool looking subjects i just had to have.
You can already see moulding improvements on this kit, so Modelsvit, and a lot of other limited run companies, should be congratulated on this.

Construction as always starts with building as many sub assemblies as possible, there are no clear parts for this kit, and all putty/seam work done as early as possible.

My method for doing seams is to tape along each side of the seam, give a rough sand, putty, and when dry rough and smooth sand, all with the tape in place. Once all major sanding is done, tape is removed, and then a light smooth feathering is all that is needed with minimal detail loss.

And seams are gone. Next up is a quick coat of XF1 to make sure.

First engine nacelle on. Not too bad a fit,and some dry fitting to make sure alignment is correct. 20180604_215033[1].jpg 20180604_215330[1].jpg 20180605_222313[1].jpg 20180605_222400[1].jpg

Engine nacelles are now both on. Not too bad a fit, and a fairly 20180606_212614[1].jpg 20180606_212623[1].jpg positive fit for the nacelle, lower plate and wing, with only minimal adjusting and putty needed.

Finally managed to get some garage time in, which has seen Tamiya XF1 sprayed onto the putty/seam lines. So far all looks good. 20180623_205357[1].jpg 20180623_205410[1].jpg
