I will admit that I haven't done all that many Revell of Germany car kits but every one I have attempted has had a problem that only became apparent in the very late stages of construction. In every case, it has been a result of some part of the kit extending well into the area where some other part must fit in order for major components to fit together, affecting overall construction of the kit. Yeah, I know about dry fitting but this problem hasn't showed up until I try to get major components to set together in final gluing. That is, the fit is not far enough off that it is obvious on dry fitting but it dramatically affects overall construction because it submits attempted glued bonds to so much tension that they don't set up properly.
Is it just me or has anyone else encountered such problems?** Posted from
