Lovely choice Kwong Yan,
You might be able to avoid puttying by taping a long piece of
masking tape from the left wingtip to the right wingtip.
And tensioning it so the gaps will close . This will help with the
dihedral as well .
What? Me worry?

Aiyoyoyo , so many gaps? I didn't know this kit had so many problems.
I have one myself.I hear the Eduard one has engine cowl fitting problems too.
I really hate sanding nowadays too , but it's necessary to do.
What? Me worry?

I can say this is completed ... jz left the swastika marking, that should be somewhere in the post office.

Anyway, its been a long and difficult build, with many shortcomings. Lots of filling and sanding required. The decals are ridiculously bad ... Quite a number of stencils were lost on the fuselage...

The in progress pictures has been moved to the Aircraft - In Progress section HERE

Here is the finished product, comments and feedback welcome.



















Moving on to Cold War GB ...

Cheers and happy modelling

Really good effort from a poor kit.

Your builds have improved tremendously and I think the harder the kit brings out the best. I like it a lot only you need to matt the wheels...you can brush paint the matt varnish.

As Landy said look forward to your cold war build.

Cheers,
Richard

It looks great! All the hard work paid off.If u have some pastel u can add water , make it into a paste and rub it on the wheels. Let it dry n brush it off , that will weather and Matt the finish at the same time.
Revell kits do not provide swasticas , you could mask and spray them on the tail fins .
What? Me worry?
