EC-121 corrected forward fuselage for Heller (Airfix) kit
This set is the first release in line for the corrected forward fuselage for the Super Constellation kits. Some photography is shown below to illustrate the thinking behind this conversion/fix
It can be seen from this picture that contrary from the kit parts' cross sections of the forward fuselage just behind the cockpit the real contours are closer to an oval and slightly flattened from the top and sides and up to approximately the cargo door where the cross section becomes truly round. This means that all the forward fuselage has to be replaced along this line in order to keep the general lines of the fuselage intact and accurate.
