Kitmaster Mark 1 BSK
The finish is remarkably smooth with little evidence of the surgery performed.
The Kitmaster moulding for the underfame has been glued into position- I had contemplated using a Brynkits replacement but, as the ones with the kit were Ok I saved a little money. The only thing needed was to open out the location holes slightly to fit.
I have removed the plastic battery boxes and replaced them with the Society casting CBR146, although these didn't have brackets, both superglued into place
The Corridor Connections are Society CBR189, a
whitemetal casting to replace the original plastic.
The strip of steel to provide weight was glued into position using the original locating pins supplied with the kit. Much needed weight is just in the right place.
As can be seen- the workplace is starting to get a bit messy and due for a tidy but at least everything is to hand and I can find it!
One thing I'm not looking forward to is painting the raised lines on all those windows although the comps will be worse! And undercoat first!!
