    Hi all
    Did anyone try to build this model? Are there any problems except lack of instructions?

    the ISSN 1428-4618 version??? I have it in front of me and it has 3 pages of illustrated assembly instructions. Nothing in text form although it being GPM and myself an english only person it's a good thing. I can't say it would be an extremely difficult build. It's a July 2004 kit so with 3 years on the shelf there has to be a build thread somewhere to answer any possible questions.

    I think I really like the metallic sheen that the printer emulates. The color scheme is not my bag (yellow and lime green striping on simulated aluminum), I would prefer a olive drab/green flavor. I got it because it's my favorite allied bomber. The Superfortress would be better in this livery though.

    Hopefully when I get a little better at building. I will start on it... (thats a long ways off).

    Thanks Stev0

    I am repainting this model to Olive Drab/Sky (actually the FLy Model's model but it's exactly as GPM's )
    Hopefully it won't take too much time until I finish
