ok, well my first official post here so here it goes. this is my personal review of the orlik XP-55 ascender and i have to say i am not to happy. i've stopped work and actualy tempted to throw the kit away, i started work on it like every one else, cockpit. not to bad, has some detail issues so finished that up then moved to the rear of the fuselage and used the draf model laser cut frames for this kit and compaired the frmae parts to the ones in the kit and marked the part numbers and cut off the green areas to glue to the laser cut parts, frames go together very nicely, no sanding or trimming needed, got the skin joiner strips on just like the diagrams say to, starting from the top and moving downward. well got to the bottom and noticed quite a bit of overhang and trimmed that off then came the skinning....YIKES!! ALL THE SKINS ARE EITHER TO SMALL OR TO LARGE!! i mean heck! i noted and marked the direction on the backs and where they're supposed to go! not a single skin fit! ok...well that right there is a kit killer and set it aside to start...well resume work on the orlik Jelcz GCBA 13/48 fire truck and so far that one is going together nicely cept for the kit stopper there which was an error on my part and messed up the frame. but if any one else has built the ascender and actualy had no problems, please let me know. thanks. da fluffy busty rat girl.
