This week I finished the decals and assembled the last sections completing the MQ-8B drone helicopter of HSM-35. The kit itself goes together very well. It would have been nice if they included a jig for the main rotors similar to the jigs you typically see with resin propeller sets for aircraft kits. The only fit issue was the nose to the main body but a little putty and some sanding corrected it. The decal set matched the reference photos except for the turret decals that were not included. If you want to try your hand at a resin kit, this would make a good start. It is not very complicated and it is an interesting subject.
Thank you for following along, Happy modeling! Check out all the photos and details from start to finish in my build log at 1/48 MQ-8B Fire Scout Drone
