I built this model this morning, I hope to have sized the model correctly to 1 / 72, the kit comes with just about 12 parts, as an added value I decided to work a bit with the landing gear so I gave it more volume to the wheels and cut some "pits" for landing gear was nothing too elaborate.

Gotta say, that first build is terrific, but that second build FU-012 you tried to make look more real is all loused up: the wing is 3/64" too far forward, with 3/17 of a degree too much angle of incidence, but the biggest problem is you've got the pilot looking like he's paying attention instead of thinking about nocturnal recreation and that just ain't realistic. :mrgreen:

Did I say I liked your first build? That's superb.

Nice job. Anything 1/72 and smaller is great. Braille-Scale rules!
