I agree....It's wise to simply put in a supporting structure to guarantee over time it won't sag.....In my Ertl enterprises, all I had to do was to glue in a L shaped piece of bent coathanger wire using white glue. No sag here. :thumbsup:rossjr said:It's plastic, while they don't seem heavy they do pose a load and will sage. About the only way around it is to build up a structure beneath it. Cult sells a structural integrety device, basically a metal frame designed to be used with the PL kit. Doing this or designing your own is about your only hope.... That or filling the nacelles with helium....
I didn't get the PL Refit. (no rocks please) as it's just too big for me. But I did notice that some of the styrene used over the years for the Ertl kits seem to change from issue to issue. Some styrenes were "softer" than others and these seemed to sag. Since the, I used the support without gambling on the quality of the styrene.SteveR said:Regarding PL refit sag, where would the weak points be?
Now an armature certainly couldn't hurt, but I wouldn't assume that these things will sag. The design is different from the Ertl design, transferring the load in some clever ways.
Now all this is just idle speculation until an engineer gets a chance to publish an analysis of this thing. That would be interesting. :thumbsup:
