For those who have not come up against UpNorth products
before, they are a small company based in Finland. They specialize in
modelling accessories, resin sets and decals and tend to concentrate on
French subjects. Their latest product is no exception.
SCR48001 is an eight piece scribing template set that is designed to be
used on the Heller Mirage IV kit. Being an older offering, the kit has
raised panel lines. This new product from UpNorth will address this
point and assist you in re-scribing the panel line detail so that it
The templates have been formed in thin brass. They are thin enough to
manipulate around the compound curves of the Heller kit yet thick enough
to survive the exercise and be used again for other scribing tasks.
Incorporated within the set are five small pieces meant for the airframe
and the canopy (the rear view mirrors).
The instruction sheet carry top and bottom plan views as
well as left and right hand side profiles that show the panel detail
that you need to scribe. These panels are numbered and these numbers
correspond to the appropriate template on the brass sheet. The sheet
also carries general advice on the scribing process.
Reasonably priced at around $21.00 odd Aussie dollars the set can be
used for many scribing tasks apart from that which it was designed and
I'm sure it that it will find a home in many tool boxes.
