The instructions would have me join all of the port-side fuselage pieces together and then all of the starboard side pieces, thus giving me two complete fuselage halves to put together, as with a more 'normal' kit.
However, looking at how the different fuselage pieces might not fit nicely...
...I've decided to build each section of the fuselage seperately, starting with the mid-/rear portion.
It doesn't help when I can see that the tools actually slipped during the moulding process. Someone wasn't paying attention back in the factory;
Seam lines, flash and a slipped tool!
So I have to build the bomb bay, before I can close up the two mid-fuselage sections. The instructions are not very clear re the positioning of the wing spar against that piece I just showed you previusly;
However, I did recognise it as a wing spar and I also noticed some slots in the fuselage that it's supposed to slide through;
Obviously, with all that flash, they needed opening up a tad, but I was then able to fix the wing spar in place, temporarily ignoring the bomb bay;
