Fun model, nicely designed and painted, though I lost that little
fiddly landing gear piece again. This time it popped out of the
tweezer and was GONE. Searched everywhere and finally found it
in the middle of the floor, well hidden in wood shavings and Corgi
(Lily, the dog) hair. Anyway, love the model, with the canopy
being the only off putting part, being about 1/16 of an inch too
When I took the model out ot the box, I noticed that skyblue area
around the F on the port-side tail, and it looked like a typical
"paint blow". I emailed the vendor to ask for a replacement,
but after talking to the Aiken's rep, decided to do some research,
and concluded that Corgi got it right: the real plane was, for
whatever reason, painted that way.
A wonderful model, with that familiar Corgi heft, and a worthy
addition to any collection..
