There’s a long seamline all the way down from the intake to the exhaust. Sigh.
Some work needed to be done to close the rear landing gear doors. As mentioned before, it’s clear Hasegawa means for this kit to have the landing gear down. I added some plastic card to the inside of the gearbay so the doors won’t fall in.
Then I use some more plastic card to act as a bridge to join the two halves together. I also cut off the gear door actuators.
A bit of sanding to shape and elbow grease later, the doors are in. Some more sanding required but it’s not too bad.
