Thanks guys for the comments! However, I tend to build "3-foot" models...from 3 feet away, they look ok, but the closer you get, the more you see fingerprints, missing parts, cat hair, etc. Just saying!
Anyways, please give Anigrand kits a try. I think all of their larger kits need re-engineered landing gear as the resin or plastic gear are not up to the job, but other than that, they fit beautifully and have very smooth surfaces.
