    Quickie build, no dramas with the kit itself, typical Tamiya well oiled machine. The most difficult part of the kit is the U/C legs, just trying to align them and get them to look "right" in that Wurger stance. I changed the markings around and added a few so this machine represents no one's in particular. Thanks for looking.
    Cheers.
    Jim:)

    Interesting you found the wheels a challenge. I believe one of the few criticisms of this kit is that the legs are molded slightly too short. I had the same issue on mine.

    Keep up the good work, though. Some good references on this site on Luftwaffe markings for next time!
