    i wouldn't say that.. the main body had a twist in it after the glue dried, yes i did have weight on it, but once i got the skin glued on it streightened out..

    thanks Zathros, yes it was a difficult model to do. i like giving myself a challenge to see what i can do. the next one looks just as difficult as this, but i need to have the bad sitting beside the good... as in bad guy-good guy....

    I have a really hard time getting the wings dry-fitted into the bay of the body. I had to cut a lot on the body to make the wing fit into the bay as it was too short, and still, the wings open only 1/3 of their whole range.

    @lyter1958 : Did you have the same problems?

    as for fitting in the body.... had to do a little trimming where the centure shaft of the wing pivit fits into. they open between 1/3 to 1/2 . i think that if the insides were not made, they might open a lot wider. next time i build it, 'm doing it that way

    I admire that you are able and willing to build model again. I am not able to do that. Maybe on some quicker build or after 10 years or so :). There is so little time and lot of great models to build:)

    wellllll.. i really didn't say "when" id try a rebuild. in 10 years i dont think i'd be seeing the fine lines no matter how strong my glasses are.:). i try to make as much free time to build as i can and yes i too have a lot of them to work on. hopefully before the fingers quit working too :yesyes:
