We  all know the Trumpeters obvious shortcomings (intakes) , a simple part would be welcome. The flexible sealing bags Trumpeter includes in the kit are wanting.  Resin replacements in either swept wing or forward sweep or both would get rid of the sketchy kit parts, at least one headache fixed....

Following the big Photobucket rip-off attempt, all my pictures on the forum cannot display anymore. I try to reupload the RFI pictures, but i'm not sure i'd have enough time and energy to reupload the pictures of the WIP threads. If you're interested in a specific subject and want me to reupload some pictures, just let me know. :)

The photo depicts rather the so called "overwing fairing" instead of the seal bags.

The seal bags are the flexible "cushons" that the wings quasi rest upon once fully swept and subsequently sealing the "hole" in the fuselage that occurs once the wings are fully swept forward.
