I sure don't want to hear that. LOL. My main worry is where I am going to be able to stuff enough lead to get it to sit on it's nose gear. I guess what I can get in the nose, and the rest in the engine nacells.

With the nose and Nacells fingers crossed enough.. hey If I can get nearly 500g in the front of a B-25 and nacelles.. we should be ok

Roden kits are an issue because the lack of locating pins makes them a pain in the ass. I did the 141, and it was dicey getting everything lined up without screwing it up. When I do the C-124 from them, I will be making tabs to help with that.

And the decals SUCKED. Get after market and trash the ones in the kit.

I don't think there are to many aftermarket sheets for OV-1A's but will check around.
