Cut off parts, place in box with glue, shake and pour.
Seriously, this kit is a beaut, and practically falls together. l had to build one for my work a while back, there was a giveaway promo thing, and I managed to finish in 4 evenings.

Thank you for the great modelling tip but I think I'll use my tried and tested method, Gaffer tape, Blu-Tack, nail gun and for fine detailing my trustee paint roller.

You can never beat a roll or two of gaffa!
And what other method is there for soft-edge camo than a 30cm roller, on a two-metre pole!

Oh, wait, that's only in 1:1 scale.

And the completed fuselage just clicks onto the wings...
One thing I didn't mention, and superfluous now as you've left him out, is that the pilot figure doesn't QUITE fit

Um, wait a sec... Metal replacement gun barrels? Are you modifying to a later mark?
