    Bugger! Now you find out how good their customer service is or can you use the the Tamiya port side?

    Shame but with a little patience, barites 0'3mm plastic or 0.5mm Pencil, some wire of 0.2, and 0'3mm, you can build and more at this scale. to menso that's what you would do .... of course that 3 or 4 times not servirian priimeras for nothing but to go away but of course if one seeks something good is best done by professionals detailed Might shows some of the right side and put it in her left.

    to say something and not be silent

    Very frustrating Steph. I recall Glenn had a similar issue with some P-40 wheel wells. but I don't remember how it worked out for him. Hope you get it sorted.

    This will be a good one to get your teeth into Steph and its good to know the mix-up of parts is being sorted. Had the same problem with Eduard a couple of builds back and they came good very quickly.

    Yeah, I have been far from impressed with true Details. They are 0 for 2 with me. I ordered a cockpit set for a P-51 that had a severely warped cockpit side. The drop tanks I just bought for the P-47 are crap molds. So, I turned off to True Details.

    Hello,
    Waiting for my good part from Aires, I began by engine. I added some wires for the ignition and I worked on the cowl flaps
