    Interior assembly is much different than other kits. Interesting how Tamiya is breaking away from the tried and true and using some very unusual construction sequences. It looks awesome!

    Wow, in all my years building models I've probably only built 3 or 4 1:32 scale kits and they had no where near that detail should be awesome when done !!

    The amount of detail on the engine is superb. Cant wait to paint and weather it. Surface controls fall together and fit if perfect :)

    Some more progress on the awesome Bent Wing. More of detail on the wings added. Main wing assembles beautiful. Amazed at the detail on the Main gear which consisted 13 parts.

    Beautiful work and awesome kit! :thumbright:
    Any idea, why the fuselage is moulded the way it is, behind the cockpit?

    To keep the rigidity of the fuselage , IMHO.
