To Photobucket. Verb. Vulg. May be used as an expletive.

To provide a valuable service that becomes relied on by many people, and then withdraw the service without warning, in a manner that not only destroys vast amounts of vital research, but also puts the providers business in dire peril.

I should never have called them Pukebucket.

Seriously, the Trumpeter Fresco kits are so outrageously cheap that few need fear practising surgery.

Indeed and if you want to correct at least part of the shape issues you must be ready to saw, cut, grind, sand, ...! At least they use a good plastic that is easy to work with.

Why should I said I am nearly afraid to have a look at the kit...?

 

The ailerons shape is also erroneous. Two changes may improve the look without correcting all the dimensions issues. First, remove a section of 3mm out of the pointy end close to the wing fence to glue it to the wing. Then, cut 3mm (at the trailing edge) of the wing tip to lengthen the other side of the aileron.

 

Not perfect but already far better.

 

T.
