I hope this works, first time trying to post a picture.

This is the result after a good 3 hours of model building with my daughter this afternoon (she's working on a 1/144 B-29). Overall a nice little kit. Its going to be OOB with no aftermarket. The only issue I had was the fit of the rear hull plate. I dry fit it 3 times with no issues, then when I glued it on the top of the plate ended up slightly high (I hope it won't be too obvious once painted).

Also I'm sorry about the picture quality, I don't really have a photo booth setup right now.

The rear side skirt's bracket is too far back and does not leave room for the jack!!!
When you line the placement of the skirts up with the kit parts, the bracket is way
too far back and will need to be cut off and moved forward!
I just learned this the hard way
Let me know if yours fit or if I did something wrong.

...and I will keep an eye out for any similar problems when I get that far.
As it is I have not made any more progress yet compared to my first post...

Cheers,
Anders
