"engineering flaw"
jonboy50
what a BIG beautiful model ! one design flaw is the wing. too much thin plastic that will warp. And, mine did. Now the wings are not even. Those outboard wings should have been engineered to to go on seperatly. Other than that issue, went together rather well.

"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.

 
"Do not buy this kit!"

This kit looks like you're going to be able to build a wonderful model of this aircraft...but don't be fooled! Inaccurate illustrations in the directions. Parts don't fit. I've been building kits for 75 years. This one is one of the worst. It's not easy to throw out an expensive kit. But I have no other choice. This hobby is supposed to soothe nerves. This one makes you a screaming idiot!
