Looks to be raked forward quite a bit.https://hushkit.net/2019/01/02/almost-the-greatest-fighter-of-world-war-ii-the-martin-baker-mb5/amp/Sorry to seem like we are picking on you. Your build looks really great. Maybe it's the fault of the kit. You didn't seem happy with the plastic bits. Whatever else you can certainly paint one of mine any day. You're miles ahead of my poor skills.
Quote from: The Wooksta! on March 25, 2022, 07:47:29 AMNice result with what is, by all accounts, a parcel of dog turds. I've the original and one of these, but I've got other MB5s by other manufacturers that are much better. I dislike this version most of all, as not only is it complete fiction, it wasted valuable manufacturing time and effort that could and should have gone on another niche aircraft yet to be done in injection - CAC Ca-15 anyone?
Quote from: PR19_Kit on March 25, 2022, 09:12:34 AMI've built three of these, or the MB-6 variant, and it is possible to get the main gear legs on wrong. I did it myself more than once.The instructions are rubbish, sadly.
