  1. Well now that both boom are done (33 parts per boom ) I started geeting the rest of the main airframe assembled . The fit on this kit is unreal . Just sad we had to wait so many years for Tamiya to come out with one . Still more a head 19BFE3A6-0BE0-402D-B3FF-F80DD7FAC091 by b007scott, on Flickr B01F734A-FFDF-45E6-8DC8-3C1D95D4283E by b007scott, on Flickr DB9A1589-9C53-4B57-96F2-9CB932809E4E by b007scott, on Flickr C9008B69-0E41-41E1-9D96-AA7D05370688 by b007scott, on Flickr Brian
