    Ok, I'm attempting to build the orlik northrop black bullet but as soon as I started building the cockpit I encountered a fit problem.

    The frame part is supposed to reach the top of the cockpit part but as you can see is a little bit short. I don't know what I should do so I decided to post it here. Should I leave it how it is or trim the part so it fits? If anyone has built this kit could you please say what you did? Thank you in advance.

    I forgot to mention that I ordered the laser cut parts, it's probably just a problem with the kis so I'm probably just going to trim the part.

    I would be very carefull with trimming anything before veryfying fit of the outside skin for this and the connecting segment.
    It might be that this sticking out part of the former supports the next segment...
    PS
    I do not have this kit so this is just a pure guesswork on my part...
