David Winter You should be aware that is the first hobbycraft boxing of their kit and it has a LOT of errors. The wings are too short. The intake profile is incorrect. The aileron actuator covers are molded on the top of the wing (they should be on the bottom). The landing gear is the wrong size and shape. etc, etc, etc... The kit is really good for 'what-iffs' but doesn't build into a very good Arrow model.

Glyn Lewins Hi David...
As I'm a hobbyist more than a rivet counting competitor it doesn't really bother me to be honest..... And 99% of my kits will never see glue!!
I've got no end of kits I'm sure have wrong bits here and there and are too long/too short etc but hey, it's a plastic kit!
However, I do thank you for the info... If I'm doing a project and something is glaringly wrong, please feel free to let me know again!!

David Winter Hi Glyn. It wouldn't be so bad if it were just rivet counters seeing the problems. It's not little details that are slightly off. It's not a panel line in the wrong place, or a pitot tube being slightly too long. The whole shape of the model is incorrect. Not a single dimension is accurate. Pretty much the only thing they got right about it, is that it's white.
