A couple of things spring to mind:
An old tooling with raised detail that has been re-tooled to feature recessed detail, or flow lines within the plastic caused by poor temperature and/or flow rate controls through one gate compared to others....


It's a Kangnam kit...I'd go with B. :grin:

Down with that sort of thing.....Easy now!

Just time for a quick update on this here build.
Got the seats and IP's into the nose section and added some weight for good measure.

Image

Tonight I plan to get the two halves together and see how that looks. Here is the fuselage section that it will attach too complete with wings.

Image

The wings are now solidly attached and the gaps filled. Ready for the twin tails now.
Once the main parts are together I should be able to tell if she will tail sit or not. There is still room for extra weight in the nose cone if needed.

More to follow. :smilie_flagge3:

Oddly, it looks OK for shape (granted that it's 16 scale feet short) and I can see it being an impressive piece of kit when it's finished. What are the decals like? I have plenty of spares if they're as...quality as the rest of the kit.
