A bipe for those who fear rigging… though as far from ‘shake ‘n’ bake as it gets…

… while I’m grateful that this was kitted in 1/48 at all, there are some horrendous fit issues with this bugger. Before attempting, please stock up on files, putty, sandpaper, patience and your most powerful favorite beverage.
This is the AmTech boxing which included a decent resin cockpit and the “nekkid” leg castings. There is, however, NO improvement on the primitive original ESCI molds…. be prepared to deal with several sessions of filling, sanding & cussing on the cowling alone. But, hey, there is zero rigging to deal with!
P.S. The astute may notice that I have a problem with misplaced flat spots on tires… a recurring theme….BAD photographer! 😉
