    They didn't have an A-8 (for Priller and Dahl) or a 262A-1 :( so I decided to get this one for now...

    Have my suspicions mate....the lines for the MW50 tank are easy to fill, think that there's a fuel fill on the port side that needs to disappear too, not too sure, have to have a look when I take it out of the soak....

    ...and engine cowling was in four bits, fit is somewhat *waves hand* naaahh...questionable.

    Instrumet panel was/is photo etch and fiddly as f*ck, the light detailing didn't help much, trying to paint the instruments...:lol:

    Looks good so far Jan. I know what you mean about some of these kits though, a bit hit and miss. As far as I know, without going into detail and sparking off a massive debate, the A7 was basically similar to the A8 anyway - a bit like the Spit IX being the stop-gap, almost pre-production, Spit VIII. The A8 'standarised' on many optional/added fitments of the A7.

    It's Ok.Sometimes there isn't any possibility and a modeller has to "mix" some kits for getting a nice replic.I have had an article smowhere about Italerfix MiG-29.The guy made a very good job really mixing Italeri and Airfix kits.

    You will probably have some extra work to do on the front of the wing to fuselage joint, where the cowl attaches....if I remember correctly....
