    'White9' flown by Ofw. Migge 1./Njgr 10. The kit has a few fit issues but builds into a decent model. All comments most welcome,thanks

    Nicely done. Only comment would be the landing gear, which looks a little too 'straight', but this might be the camera angle and the lens.

    That looks better, especially if they are also slightly raked forward.

    Yep...it seems to be better looking now. But what about the view from a side?

    Need to be angled forward more. I'll try to post a scale drawing, but it won't be until tomorrow night, UK time.

    Thanks Terry, I'm going to have to live with it as is but a ref for the next one will be much appreciated. I'm afraid to tweak on the poor things legs anymore ,I've already boogered them up and its only going to get worse under there.

    Here you go Trey, might help for the next one. The drawings are mixed, being A3 and A8, but the angles are the same. Sorry they're not the clearest examples, but they were the easiest to scan quickly !

    I find one of the problems with these kits is that the struts are molded with the oleos at full extension vs being compressed under the weight of the aircraft. The drawing above shows the significant difference in the side view.
