Cheers,

Thanks for that link Rich! I liked both the black "Spooky" and camoflage markings that were in the box, and both were shot down by what AOA had to say about the research.
I even found a photo of "Spooky" all in black with the white ghost on the sides.

The other night I broke the kit out and clipped the fuselage, main wing and a couple of the bulkhead parts off the sprues. The wing appears to be "OK" the fuselage has some problems. Unlike the review I read, it looks like the sides are a little warped in that they are too flat. The nose back to the firewall is good, but should continue to curve outward a little so that the sides are slightly rounded out, not flat. This is confirmed when I placed the fuselage under the main wing. The upper sides are flat and don't curve out so that they can meet with the lower wing parts. There is about 1/16th gap on each side. It will mainly need some creative assembly work to get the parts adjusted so they fit right.
In addition the clear plastic parts needed the mold to be polished smooth a lot more. There are machining marks all over the windows. I will try polishing them at work and see if they can be fixed or if they need some Vac parts made. :smack Roden had a large dose of IDee-Ten-T on this one. I believe it can be built, but some rewarping of the fuselage is going to be needed. I have some photos, but they need to be edited and put into a semblance of order first.

You get the paste from Digikey?

No, simply searched for the cheapest one from China.

Rich, I've been looking at those Asuka/Tasca Shermans and was thinking of ordering one of the Firefly's but then this showed up in my LHS and it just happened to follow me home. As most of you know my scale of choice is the one true scale 1/72 but I have branched out into some 1/32 aircraft builds and decided it was time I tried my hand at a larger armor build. I've only done one other 1/35 armor build and that was Tamiya's ancient Panzer II back in the 1980's somewhere. :oldguy

Don't know when I'll start this but when I do wish me luck! :ohyeah

BTW: If my wife asks why I'm building a big one I'm blaming it all on Pup for doing such an amazing job on his interior. :tomato

Interiors can be a lot of fun, even if you can't see them when done. Can't really do that with tiny stuff.

Well you could but you'd be a raving lunatic by the time you were done. :gogo
