Hi Bruce... As you can see between pics 46 and 49 the fit in that area was not good. Indeed the sizes in both parts are different. I tried to fit them as best as possible, but I did not get to correct it with putty and sandpaper. Maybe I can live with that being on the underside of the plane. One of the legs came off during the masking process. Be careful when sanding, because that joint is a bit delicate.
I also had trouble trying to fit the canopy. I had to do adjustments to the canopy and fuselage to be able to fit it in and maybe force it a bit, because it was higher than the top of the fuselage.
I had another problem with the decals. Especially with those of the wheel fairing and with the thin red lines along the fuselage. They are very thin and tend to bend inwards when you try to separate them from their support and can also break when trying to handle them.
For the rest, it is a small, simple kit to assemble and worth trying it, because it looks very good in the showcase with the rest of the larger aircraft
