After yesterday's assembly phase of ze beeg F-117, I truly believe this well-fitting kit 'could' be a weekender--hey, "Tamiya" doesn't fool around! Since both top and bottom airframe halves are each a large single casting, including wings, there's little glueing or filling. And the V-tails fit seamlessly onto the empennage. My so far fruitless search for maintenance panel information--I did find a pic or two of structures revealed during manufacturing--will probably mean that display of the detailed engine assemblies, including intake and exhaust trunking will probably be OBE'd (Overcome By Events). Just wish "Tire Black" was available in the lacquer spray can; at least I don't remember it being available......
