Any ideas to clear that up?
I am certain we will see a vast number of aftermarket parts for this kit. It offers the most potential to go completely insane on detail that we have seen for a long time. I'm still on the side of the pool waiting to see where to swim, but the water looks pretty fine.

Eduard stated the other day on The Plastic Modelling Hour show, that they were waiting for their kit to arrive and that they do have PE sets planned for it.
Hmmmm must have been some super cool dude that asked that question...............
FOR SURE need AM wheels for this thing after looking at the OOB one. The OOB wheels are ok, but the tread pattern is a bit too spaced out, and it doesnt go down on the sidewalls a bit like the real deal. Not to mention the fact that cleaning out that seam down the center is going to be a PITA, and a set of AM resin wheels will take care of that pronto.

Profimodeller have two different gun sets with perforated jackets. They have different lengths and barrel ends, and frankly I'm not sure which ones to use for which plane. The instructions posted are not very clear, but the guns look pretty fine. Master barrels all are the same length, which may be OK as well, given how far they back up into the fuselage, etc.
Any ideas to clear that up?
The only thing I can see different is Set A has muzzle flash suppressors, where Set B doesn't

vented metal barrels for all the guns.....and some resin wheels!
I would like to see some Resin Wheels, and some Stencil Decals.. maybe a project for Jennings and Fundekals? and some figures and ground equipment
For sure better wheels. Also ground equipment like a bomb trolley and more CBI decals
I do not see anything wrong with the wheels and tires as they are. The wheels are correct and are multple pieces with the interior pieces and brake parts and the tires are weighted slightly on the bottom and they actually have the correct tire tread on them. I think they are some of the best wheels and tires out of the box in any kit to date. I would be interested to know what you would like to see different in casted wheels or is it just that no one likes the idea of sanding the seam on the tires? I really do not know how they could be improved on.

Props. Props, props, a hundred times props! And an aside, why are they often the one feature most often pooched on a kit? Not just subtleties like twist, but basic plan form and diameter.
The props and engine casings and prop govenors have been mastered by Harold from AMS resin. They are available from Sprue Brothers.

Hoping Eduard is working on this & there'll be a US distributor......
