I don't know what the hell is wrong with this model. I just came back from London and tried to put the hull together, but I had a really hard time to align the two halves properly. It took several tries, scraping away lots of plastic, lots of curses and a couple of rubber bands to get them in place. As a result, the joints on the underside of the model look horrible now and I also had to use a lot of liquid green stuff to cover the gaps. My first Raider went much more easily together.
At least the hard part of the model is now done and I can proceed painting the smaller parts. By the way, the hull looks a bit patchy at the moment, so don't be afraid, a coat of varnish will fix that.
