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

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.

@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

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

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