There’s a ‘Slovenian History’ group build in progress on our modelling forum and this is one of my contribution for the build. I will be making a Welsh Models 1:144 kit of Bombardier CRJ-200 reginal jet in colours and markings of our national airline Adria Airways. This is a resin kit with some white-metal parts. As there are no wheel wells made and I don’t have a wish drilling them out I’ll be posing it wheels up and on a stand.


The nose is cast in white metal to counter the weight of the engines in the back and as the fuselage is made of solid resin block, there’s no place to put nose weight in. It seems like a good idea, but the fact is, as you can see in the photo, the nose it too narrow and some Miliput blending is in order.


Fitting the one piece wing to the fuselage once again revealed gaps at the front and back join which will need Miliput treatment as well.


Luckily, the upper wing joins appear great and maybe just a smear of Mr. Surfacer will be needed to blend it in.
