got this kit last winter, started building it and put it away as I needed to
spray-paint the components and that is best done outside when the weather is decent.
So, off course, I forgot it.
my big drive to tidy up and organise my gaming stuff, the hangar surfaced. As
one of my goals this year is to finish all my half-made stuff, this got a bit
a laser-cut cardboard kit and produced by GPM,
a Polish company. It is cleverly done with corrugated cardboard for all the
walls and the roof.
of the kit is a bit fiddly, and especially the beams are prone to bend when you
put them together and when you place the beams onto the walls. I
used a good trick I learned from Battle Systems; I coated the fragile ends with
super glue, turning them rock-hard.
good advice is to dry-fit everything before gluing (I used superglue gel) as the
instruction sheet isn’t very clear. I assembled the individual walls first
and then put them together as an open box. Attached the girders for the roof
after that, and when dry attached the corrugated roof. I then glued the hangar
onto the ground-sheet and finally attached the doors.
attached the windows in a different way that the instructions said, as I
thought that looked better. So, do try everything out beforehand.
end result is an enormous hangar. Really good-looking and a very useful
addition to our Italian desert airfield. Soon to be raided by LRDG.
