Spotlight Review

"Detailed Kit But very small tolerances."
This kit has many optional components making it possible to make many different versions of the aircraft (though no munitions were included for the option of opening the bomb bay doors). My only complaint about this particular kit is that the tolerances for the kit's pieces in some areas is so tight that simply painting them will cause them to no longer fit correctly, requiring sanding/alterations to the kit it's self to make the pieces fit correctly. In order for this kit to balance it's self correctly, ballast must be added to the nose, be sure to do this carefully as in my case I had set the ballast slightly too far forward, making it impossible to fit the nose gun turret. Instead my kit had to get the glass view port on it (this came in the kit). Be sure to dry-fit every aspect of the version you wish to create carefully to ensure everything fits properly, especially the bomb bay components if you have that particular option open.
