    A few bits removed from the sprues and some glued together, the engine pieces look tricky to paint !

    my radical solution, what Tamiya should have done, separate the air box from the engine, needs some plastic tube and sheet to replace the saw cuts and attach the air box again !

    A brave decision there, Allan @kalamazoo, but I’m sure it’s for the best.
