Nice start, congratulations👍. But I'm little scared of parts fit. I've got one in my stash. Is it really problem as it looks on your pictures?

well not so far the engines where quite easy not a big gap, need to put them on the wings yet but doesnt look that bad, the main fuselage looks a little tricky on the front but the front parts you can assemble seperately. no real issue this far, only the machineguns are 2 different (look the same) so you need to use the right ones with the right turret.

Got to remember that this is a re box of the Matchbox kit.If I remember right the fit is pretty decent.

it fits okay so far, the engine intakes are going to need some modeling but will be okay probs, will keep the project updated

how are u dealing with bomb bay doors ?

First, closed, not open.

I assembled as directed, starting at the port side and working toward the starboard side. I got all four pieces glued into place before I realized that piece number three, the starboard bottom panel bowed upwards and in to the bomb bay.


After cogitating from some long while, I finally inserted the tip of a fine Xacto knife between the bottom panel and the side panel at the point of the apex of the bow of the bottom panel and levered it up into the position where I thought it should be. I then applied copious quanities of 'clear-part glue' to between the panels, while the Xacto knife remained in place, with its handle taped to the starboard wheel. After the clear glue (the kind for 'making' glass windows) dried, I untaped the Xacto handle and extracted the blade. I'll have to do a bit of sanding along that panel line on the bomb bay doors, but it doesn't look too bad at all and it no longer bows up into the bay itself.

I have a picture of the knife in place, but I haven't uploded it yet.

Now uploaded. I've started sanding on the excess glue and it comes off just fine. I'm okay with the results, but I'm not a detail perfectionist.

My grandfather flew one of these. He was a wing commander in the war. I would dearly love to find and build this kit for my dad. Good job.
