Refit 1/350 Pylon Gap Question
« on: June 21, 2017, 07:53:37 am »
I'm doing some test fits of the Polar Lights 2017 re-issue.  I'm coming across a gap issue with where the pylons connect to the secondary hull that's pretty significant.  Has anyone else come across this issue or know where I could maybe trim some of the connection to the pylons that wouldn't decrease their structural integrity?  Otherwise, that's a lot of putty....

Thanks in advance!

Many encounter this issue.

Back in 2013, I researched this myself and posted this:

That thread was perfect!  Thanks so much Gadgetron_3000!  Exactly what I needed to know about where to modify the pegs.  We have such a great modeling community here.
