Very nice looking kit.
The wash came out great, it really shows the detail in the panel lines.

Looks wonderful.  The orange is pretty vibrant, reminds me of Super-O.

Max-

Great work oveall! As i said in the in-prog, I love the cockpit detail. The one thing I noticed in the wide shots was that there seemed to be some trouble with parts alignment (for instance, the rudders are crooked compared to the wings, and the nose wheels are not parallel). I was wondering if you had any trouble with the parts fit in final assembly. I'm taking notes for future reference since I have this kit. Thanks!

Sharp eye you have there :)
The rudder is a pain to do because of the small contact point.. I have it redone... lost count how many times... have to scrap off the glue and redo a few times...  :x

As for the nose wheel.. I should have place the 'cover' before installing the front wheel.. ended up.. I have to 'force shift' it sideways to get the 'cover' in.

Hope you dont repeat the same 2 mistake I made :)

Thanks for the pointers. While the surface detail on these kits is incredible, I'm pretty disappointed with Hasegawa's effort if I look at them as a model airplane builder. I'm used to Tamiya's airplane kits which have fantastic parts fit and engineering and good interior detail.

For what Hasegawa charges I'd like a model that scores well in all areas, exterior detail, interior detail, and above all, FIT! It's a model kit, Hasegawa, we have to be able to PUT IT TOGETHER!  :razz:
