Oh... By scratching I'm refering to scratch building...Yeah, you said you scratched up the .50 cal barrel and the side skirts. the main gun barrel looks scratched up as well. I was just wondering if this was an Aestetic thing, or neccessary for the kit build, I've got one in my stash you see, so any heads up before i get there can only be a good thing.
The. 50 cal, and the main barrel are made out of brass tube, simply to make it more accurate... The main barrel was rather wonky. The. 50 cal was very poor quality. The headlight guards and the one inserted side skirt are made out of a piece of a beercan, simply to optain are more delicate scale look... And it makes it look more like bent metal... Cuz it is.
The hatch locking mounts where non existent in this kit, therefor I scratch build them.
I hope that answered your question. Feel free to ask again, that is the only way in which we learn.
