HARVARD
Tuesday, 18 October 2016  | 

I have bought a number of model aircraft kits from Vintage Model Co. but this has not been a good one. I read with interest the comments made by Philip back in March 2016 as I have had the same problems exactly. I thought that by now Vintage would have put the faults to right as stated in their reply.
As a pensioner, I take great delight in building these models, but why o why are the instructions provided on a photocopied sheet of DIN A4. My sight is not what it used to be and I can only read the very small print with the aid of a magnifying glass.
Come on Vintage! Think about your vintage customers.


Response:

Thank you for the feedback John.

You have given us the required boot up the rear and I can confirm that we have addressed the problems with the Harvard this afternoon!

In terms of the instructions, we would have to re-type these to make them bigger - just blowing them up from the original scan will make them even more illegible.

After building a Sparrowhawk for my Grandson, my family bought me the Harvard kit for my 65th, my second model in 50 years, and first ever flying scale type.

To dispose of the faults first - I'm guessing you inherited some original Veron errors. Three of the ribs are oversized (easy enough to cut down) and one of the keel pieces is duplicated. Secondly, the wing centre section as built on the plan does entirely correlate to the outer panels, and needed some fiddling. Otherwise the bundle of strip wood was generally OK, but the 1/16" stringers were of variable hardness and section, two tapering down to virtually nothing. I cut two lengths from the edge of one of the sheets to complete. Finally, the two strips for the main spar gave adequate length in total, but not enough to make the spar for the centre section in one piece, needing a join and a doubler.

But, otherwise fine. The cutting of the formers was most impressive, allowing a very accurate fuselage build and despite the small problems a fine kit indeed.

The large motor space of the Harvard encouraged me to convert to electric (KP01), modifying the nose pieces with 1/16" ply to carry the motor, and the wing centre section to carry the ESC and battery. Finally I covered with yellow and black Esaki, to match FE905, the Harvard in the collection at Hendon.

Well done Vintage, I think you are doing a great job.


Response:

Thanks Philip.

Your comments about the kit are noted and we will update our cut files.

So glad you enjoyed the build - any chance of a couple of pictures of your finished model please?
