It's landed!

After looking through the kit it is very much like the ME 262, snap, clip and screw together. again the detail is minimal and toy like. Also, it looks like ABS and the plastic has a funny smell. Rivet detail is clunky and maybe a bit heavy in places.

I think a decent paint job will lift it and so far I have identified opening pilot doors and sliding compartment doors that should work and the rotors should turn maybe other things too, we will see.

I am not sure about doing the teeth. might be more trouble than they are worth.

I wouldn't be crazy about the teeth decal either, James....

Have to agree, the teeth don’t look great!
