How is the AModel Fiddler to build?

Very impressive, I must say. Wish I had the space (and money, and time) for these big models.

It's both good and bad!! the worst problem I had with mine was the intake trunking didn't fint inside the fuselage, dispite lots of jiggering and poking!! In the end I had to loose it, but ti didn't matter in the overall scheme of things. It was also a but of a putty minster around the intakes, but most of the kit went together pretty well. An d, being a glutton for punishment I've got 2 more in the stash to do. One of which will become an RAF very long range patrol/interceptor covering the GIUK gap.

\These are the Amodel kits I've built so far - TU128, SU11, YAK130D, SU15TM - way overscale cockpit panels so a lot of sanding to get them thing enough and I'm currently building the LA250 Anakonda as an in service machine!
In the stach I've got 2 more TU128's as previously mentioned, A Yak 28 Brewer with the glass nose and 2 or 3 more that I can't think of at the 'mo.

Thanks Wolfik, it is indeed rather a monster, coming in at just over 36 inches.........a big boy. roughly the same as the Valkyrie...only slightly narrower! :cheers:
