Great choice of a kit. :)

Take your time with it (the gaps), try filling in the gap with some scrap styrene before you putty. A little TLC and she'll look great.

Yeah, take your time with it. Keep in mind that this isn't one of the "new" Airfix kits, just a new box for one of their older kits.

so I kinda lost momentum with this build, I am a little bit troubled. So began gluing the propeller together, and I glued the wrong three in the wrong slots. So does any one know what thins Tamiya thin cement? My other trouble spot is paint. I have no idea how I will do it. so if any one could help that would be great.
