The kit is from an old mold and shows some signs of its age. There were some fit problems with fuselage and I had to use putty on the seams. The engine halves, especially, need a lot of work and a lot of putty to fill the gaps. The small wings went together well, but the large ones had to fill the gaps with putty.

 

It’s a huge model and I display it on a large glass table.
