James White Absolutely a blast. I blew so much time and money figuring out the casting thing, but it was so much fun. And what you don't see is when my wires came loose inside after I'd glued the whole beast together. I was so depressed I walked away for several weeks, hanging my head in shame for my poor soldering skills. Only this weekend did I do some major surgery to reconnect the wires. I learned this is possible from the Batwing model I just finished. Batman Batwing (1989) | Project by awkwards (1:25)

JD Glad you pulled through it, the lights are awesome!
James White Thanks all for your kind comments. @Augusto, the exhaust nozzles fit OK for me. Weapons details were utterly absent and between that and the punchout holes from the mold on all the 500lb bombs and the Mavericks, this is where I spent the most time on filling/sanding and even some money on the after-market decals (which I found on eBay by doing a search for 1/72 weapons decals). I learned so much doing this build. Even though it was difficult it was a lot of fun. I believe all these challenges are why I was able to buy this kit for US$15. Every time I look at it I see a new little error or some place I missed filling (like on the right leading edge, which may be what @Harry is referring to).

James White Wish it had come with a pilot. Come to think of it, I probably should have tried to find one given all the other parts I dredged up for it!
