new tool Airfix Bf110 C/D (5)

Lots of filling and sanding of panel lines which even a couple of coats of primer could do nothing to disguise. Fit around the lower engine cowls was poor - they stand quite proud of the mount. Scratched the fuselage 'towel rail' antenna and the aileron balances. Have since added the crew boarding ladder and drilled out the supercharger intake and the cowl engine instrument faces. Hope to get some pre-shading and lower surfaces painted soon !

Otherwise the amount of things to hang under the wings in the box is quite impressive and includes the fuselage oil tank first seen on the 'D' variant and the the smaller 'fighter-style' drop tanks which will go to the Fujimi build.
