But, on the upper side…

you could get a hand in those gaps! I really don’t understand how, especially given the precision of the rest of the kit, the gaps can be so huge. I can only assume warping or shrinkage of the fuselage mouldings. lots of filling needed here

and the nose cone, another horrendous fit, and this is AFTER I thinned out the inner walls to ease the problem, really not happy at this stage.
