Purchased on Mighty Ape

It's a cheap B29. It's not a great kit. It doesn't fit together well, the internal assemblies require trimming to fit into the hull halves. Much sanding and filling is required. instrument decals are larger than the panels etc. However, I bought the kit to make the B29 boat from “the last flight of Noah's Ark”. For this it is perfect. Cutting the wings back to the inner engines, leaving off the tail and horizontal stabs, it provides the basics of the boat. Getting the bomb bay doors to stay fixed and open is a pain but required. With effort it works.
