" . . .and one can only hope that the fit of all these is up to snuff."
So says the preview in Modelling Madness. Have fun finding out, guys; I won't be on this trip. Having been burned by their AV-8B, I won't be buying another kit with so many badly engineered parts. The AV-8B is buildable only with massive amounts of trial fittings, pull-aparts and putty. I'll do that with an old Monogram kit from the 60's of a subject available nowhere else, but I won't pay $30 for a jigsaw puzzle of a kit. I take that back--even the cheapest jigsaw puzzle is engineered to fit together properly. And spare me to argument that Hasegawa does this to make it's precision molds available to all marks--it's not like there's no other P-40's out there, and it's not like these molds won't be in service when our grandchildren are building models--take a look at their latest reboxing of the early 60's F-105.
