E E Lightning F6
The English Electric Lightning is a supersonic fighter aircraft of the Cold War era. It was designed, developed, and manufactured by English Electric, which was subsequently absorbed by the newly formed British Aircraft Corporation. It was then marketed as the BAC Lightning. The Lightning was the only all-British Mach 2 fighter aircraft. The Lightning was used by the Royal Air Force (RAF) and the Royal Saudi Air Force (RSAF). Although it was the RAF's primary interceptor for more than two decades it was never required to attack another aircraft.

Get it out of your stash and on to your bench, its Tamiya quality. I Joined together all the half/half parts and painted all interiors in only 4 hours!

I will, right now I am having similar problems to you, with the Spit, only it is on my Kinetic A-6.

I read that you had a minor issue with the intakes, but what is the problem now?

There are small pieces that go on the inner wing leading edges near the root. They do not come close to fitting, will need quite a bit of putty. The left wing fit the fuselage quite well at the root, the right had a large gap, luckily some Vallejo acrylic putty took care of that, without massive sanding. It is just aggerevating, the kit wasn't cheap, but I feel it was poorly engenireed. But I will not be defeated. But if you decide to do an A-6 go for the Hobby Boss one. LOL.

P.S. are you using the kit cockpit on your lighting. I got the Aires resin one for mine, because I could not find a PE set for it. After I bought the resin pit I found the PE set. I have only done one resin cockpit and that was the Cobra Vietnam cockpit on my Revell 1/32 AH-1G Cobra.

The cockpit is built up, ready for some paint. Smaller parts have been painted on the spru.
