Something to make the S-3 look small in 1/32... This is going to be awesome!

Surprisingly easy build with some caveats. I didn't fold the wings or the rudder and I left out much of the inner assemblies like the bomb bay and radar. As a result, attaching the bomb bay doors were tricky since there weren't any prominent positive locating surfaces. The main landing gear assembly was tricky and overly complicated. Took a long while to figure them out as the instructions for that section were very vague. I closed the speedbrakes (I like my planes "clean" ) even though they are only molded in the open position. Very disappointed that there wasn't any bombs for the bomb bay. If Trumpeter included them, I definitely would have broken my clean airplane rule and opened the bomb bay doors. Who produces a bomber that has no bombs? Weird. Huge plane. My wife even commented on it - and she doesn't even care about my models when I show her them after I complete them. In the end, though, I liked the way it turned out. I'd recommend it if you're OK with a strategic bomber with no bombs!

Nice decals. No issues or silvering.

First time I used Furball's masks. Mixed feelings. Worked well enough but the vinyl was very stiff. As a result, they didn't seal tightly around compound curves even though I burnished them down each time I painted over them. I had to do some clean up afterwards to remove some Tamiya panel liner and Future that leaked under the masks. The A-3 has mostly flat canopy panels and I experienced leakage; I would be worried about using them on something like an F-14 that has a serious curve to its canopy.
