Response to AER's problems

I can't speak about incorrect positioning because I didn't do enough of research but as I mentioned the model in the kit doesn't match any of the pictures and or drawings I found on the net. Most importantly the "tail" assembly.
But the main problem is that all parts were too thick and they wouldn't attach to each other without gaps that need to be filled with putty. I ended up filing off some of the rivets and remaking them after filling the gaps with putty (you can see that on the pictures). Also some of the parts had rivets on the wrong side. Oh, and another thing - the parts are attached to the sprue via a thick piece of plastic- you can't just clip them off without damaging them - have to cut them off carefully.

Hope that answers your questions...
I can email you the high-res pictures of sprues if you're interested.
