Finally finished this one! It's a pity that I'll probably have to give it away because I'm moving to go to graduate school next month and can't take a lot of my things with me

So, in summary:

The Good:
-Detailed cockpit
-Detailed engines
-Detailed gun mounts
-Fit on the individual prop blades to the spinner base was so good I didn't need a jig to align them

The Bad:
-Fit on the multiple cowling pieces was a bit fiddly
-Huge gaps on the wing roots that had to be filled
-Lots of ejector pin circles, most of which I was too lazy to deal with
-Torpedo mounts didn't quite line up properly when assembled

Overall a fun model to build though!

You did a super job on the Tu-2T...it looks like a pretty good kit, from the pix.

Good luck in grad school, and try to keep modelling during those crazy, hectic periods.
