Power Series. Another very nice model from
HM. I never thought I would be a modern-jet collector, but there you
are. The quality of these models is amazing. Assembly is almost flawless,
paint is sharp and flawless, and the engineering of the model is almost
Sitting down on the job.
There are just two irritating problems: glue can be seen around the
seam on the nose cone; and, the model is a tail
sitter. I'm surprised HM's engineers didn't fix that last problem
during development. As it is, the model balances with its front wheels
about 1/16th inch from the table top, from which a deep sigh or perhaps
an earthquake halfway around the world will cause it to plop down
on its rear end. Sigh... Anyway, I used tacky glue to hold the nose
down, then Photoshopped the offending blue-glue from the pictures.
