"Stunning Kit"
Gary B. (Port Huron, MI)
Not sure what the previous gentleman was experiencing but my kit came together very well. Very little sanding and filing was required and no filler was needed at all. As a matter of fact minimal Mr. Surfacer was even needed on the seams. As with all Trumpeter kits, test fitting is paramount even several steps in advance to assure everything is going together well. As always, use of Flex-I-File's Touch-N-Flow System helps close/fills the more difficult seams. My kit is near completion and it is shaping up to be a stunning model.

 
"Great detail!"
Walt Kozlowski (Collingdale,Pa)
Only one problem, no engine access to show off the awesome Allisons.

 
"Thinner is not always better"
tvdavis1954
*I’m ¼ done. First at ¼ done I can tell it will be stunning when done. My problem is it isn’t a bad model it’s obvious this is not your standard Trumpeter model the plans and color plans are different then standard Trumpeter and the plastic is much thinner then all the 40 plus Trumpeter kits I have. The fit is just not as true as used to with other Trumpeter kits. This does not mean gaps and tons of putty. Since the plastic is thinner it is harder to get things lined up – cool, calm and collected – is the key. I think at $104 is a tad high I would feel OK with about $80.
