The "Hit & Miss" quality of ICM 's kits , mentioned above , is too true -- anyone come across or tried building their 1/48 Hs.126B-1 yet ? -- i have , and its a proper twisted fuselage nightmare of a kit 😨😈

Hi Kev

Yes, unfortunately it's becoming something of a common theme; Torsten noted trouble with the 1:48 Do 17 in a recent thread - and, again, when I reviewed the first release, the fit was excellent.

I make a point of going one step beyond a bog standard "in box" review where it's practical by doing a basic test fit of the major parts - but what that can't guard against is varying production standards. It's doubly frustrating when you've spent extra time doing your best to give an accurate overview of a kit.

All the best
