I recommend repositioning the aft bulkhead from the turret mounting platform to the rear. As well as (earlier in the build, too late for me) to position the entire platform 1mm to the rear. It gives the turret some more space in order to position it in the middle of the side fuselage cutouts.

Excellent work and attention to detail. I have 2 of the AM Avengers in my stash and appreciate the tip about moving the flight deck platform. I really like what you did with the greenhouse canopy - looks just like scale plexiglass. Looks like you are using Mr Color paints, is that right?

Hi John, thanks for your kind words! First of all it's not the flightdeck platform but the smaller turret platform! I can point out some more things if you are building a 1C. And so far I have used mostly Mr. Color lacquer paints, thinned with my their levelling thinner.
