Spotlight Review

 
"Disappointed"
exogen
I was looking so forward to adding an E model b17 to my mini museum. Not happy. Right wing dihedral waaaay off. Left gap I had to fill. Doesn't look right. Not happy. Many extra/duplicate parts. Check part numbers! Test fit! Lack of detail. No ammo belts.Tires do not fit in well for gear up. Hadn't to cut the wells out. Other PITA's. Can't recommend. I hate doing a bad review. But it is what it is. Expect a lot of work to get this one right.
