Just received this in a damaged box sale and its an interesting aircraft and I do like the ones that are a bit quirky at least IMO. Looking forward to building it and it looks Ok in the box but I expect the usual Revell gaps but thats OK. Never built a Russian aircraft before

Not all Revell kits have gaps! My last 1/32 Bf109 didn't. I've built Tamiya,Hasegawa and Airfix (modern) kits that all had gaps.

Anyway. On another note. I was just looking at the 1/32 versions of this aircraft. Will be watching this when you build it.

Had a few minor gaps with Revell which is OK, wing base mainly but one huge 5mm gap on the nose of a Bristol Beaufighter. But I don't mind and its always a bonus when you don't get many or even any. I'll make sure I create a thread Alan when I start

Gary,
nice model! It originates from the now defunct Accurate Miniatures - I made the single seater ski fitted version many years ago - I can't remember any problems - it's surprisingly big for a single engine!
