It should cross kit with their Beaufighter much easier, given that they use the same wing structure and the mating surfaces are similar.

And what is wrong with High Planes' kits, might I ask?

Yes, they are not Tamigawa "shake and bake" models and require a little more work than perhaps we have become used to but they are generally quite accurate and go together reasonably straight forward.  Compared to Mach 2 kits, at least all the parts match and fit!  :thumbsup:

I've never slagged them off, merely said they're challenging.  Unicraft, on the other hand...  Frankly, I can't pour enough vitriol on that parcel of crap.
