Bart Goesaert That cockpit is nice... the idea for presenting it too...

Holger Kranich This Looks really good! I heard rumors about some gaps who appear whilst building. Can you confirm it? Must be the upper side and can be comouflaged with kit parts.

Stephen G @Holger - Yes, unfortunately... I've been test-fitting the 2 fuselage halves around the cabin as I progress and let's just say... I am not looking forward to joining them. There are large gaps both on the bottom and top, and I don't think there's anything you can do to prevent it happening. Theoretically you can close the bottom one, resulting in a larger gap at the top which can be covered by the engine housing. But.... the engine housing then doesn't fit properly on top either. I'll try to get a photo of the problem on here!

It is the only difficult gap issue I've encountered though, and weighed against the detail quality of the kit, it's probably still worth it :)

Holger Kranich Good to know that. And i still wanna have the kit. Am i a bit Masochistic? ;)

Stephen G Maybe a bit! I've put a few photos on to show the extent of the gap you may or may not encounter.

Konrad Limmer Very nice Stephen !
Your progress looks fantastic and don't worry about the gap. Perfect Plastic Putty and the gaps are gone ;)!
