I just started this kit while the paint is drying on there B-25. Any real
problems with this kit. I'm sure it's as nice as the Mustang and the B-25. Just
checking and digging for any sercets. Thanks John 39437                        

    Is there any hope that a Corsair is the furture from AM.

 Well, there is the relief tube...

 Other than that it's almost perfect as far as any kit can be. The
turret can be tricky in trying to get it in but I didn't have as many
problems as I've heard others have had, dumb luck I guess. I built mine
when I first got back into the hobby but I wish I had waited, not
because it's too hard for a beginner but because my skills were not up
to par with the kit and it could have turned out better had I waited a
year or so. It's definitely better than the Mustangs but I can't compare
it to the B-25...yet.

I haven't built it yet, but from the built-ups I've seen and the kit
in my closet, the lap belts are too narrow, and the iginition harness
wiring is too heavy as molded in plastic.  Better to replace both
items with your choice of wire, foil, etc.

Get a good reference to work alongside of, needless to say.

Great kit, watch out for the turrent and follow the assembly sequence in the
directions or you will run into problems.  You will spend a lot of time masking
the canopy, but that's normal on an subject like the TBF(M).
