After a lot of trouble, getting the right shipments and also the right building instructions - i finally could give the Spitfire a start.

Despite looking very straight forward - i found the building of the rear fuselage quite challenging. The first try there was a bending to one side, so i had to dissassemble.

The second time i built some kind of jig - i hope now everything is correct!

Hi DaDokta, BigGrin

Glad to see you got sorted.
I had the same issue and sorted it with clamps.

A tricky bit of the build if you don't keep your eye on the ball.

You'll be able to carry on now with renewed vigour.

Can't wait to see moreCool

Hi DaDokta,
Looks a good build to me, that rear fuselage was a bit tricky pleased to see you have overcome it and continue to build, I have found that you will get small problems but easy to overcome, all the best for now and keep posting.
