Finally finished this one! It's a pity that I'll probably have to give it away because I'm moving to go to graduate school next month and can't take a lot of my things with me sad.gif

So, in summary:

The Good:
-Detailed cockpit
-Detailed engines
-Detailed gun mounts
-Fit on the individual prop blades to the spinner base was so good I didn't need a jig to align them

The Bad:
-Fit on the multiple cowling pieces was a bit fiddly
-Huge gaps on the wing roots that had to be filled
-Lots of ejector pin circles, most of which I was too lazy to deal with
-Torpedo mounts didn't quite line up properly when assembled

Overall a fun model to build though!

To post an image of your models, you will first need to find somewhere to host your photos on the Internet. Your ISP will often give you a limited amount of free web storage, and other online photo storage is also available.

To post a link or an image, simply type in the URL (web address) of the destination page or image. The URL will appear as a link (for an HTML link) or an image (if you link direct to a .jpg file) when posted. You can use the Preview facility to see how your message looks before posting to Plastic Pix.

Please try to keep image sizes to 800 pixels wide or less, as larger sizes will be too big to fit on many computer screens. Also, file sizes should be kept to around 100kb or less, otherwise download may be very slow.
