This is a very nice, well engineered kit with very good base details. The fit in all areas is good. The Cutting Edge resin cockpit fit perfectly as long as it is aligned properly. Take your time with the internal sub-assemblies and she will snap-together like a dream. Lots of dry-fitting and minor adjustments are the trick, but this would be much easier w/o resin cockpit set. But in my opinion this, or similar correction is needed b/c base cockpit is all wrong and looks wrong w/o a fix. The Allison Engine is a model in itself and a real shinning point with this kit. I did not super detail this area b/c this was a consignment build for customer who did not request it. but the engine is calling out to super-detail her. I weathered her extensively using actual aircraft photo references. I also used Camo mask for camo pattern.
