hello with the groupbuild coming closer I just wonder of this kit needs some aftermarket?

Looking on the web I found a lot off things.

Are ther things that have to be changed on this kit?

Im talking about the Tamiya kit.

 

Thanks Mark

No, not really, Mark. The Barracuda resin enhancements are a good refinement for the cockpit. If you don't like the rubber-like types you can use their wheels too.

Don't use Rolls-Royce logos on the cylinder heads as the Mk. XVI used the Packard Merlin... You could also use the Master barrels for the "e"-wing, that'll make the guns look super, although usually the cannon and MG-muzzles would be taped when the guns were loaded.

I'm not aware of a laser-cut version of them yet, but cutting them out is really not all that difficult. 

 

Nope, according to Edgar Brooks those seatbelt were used post-war. During the war the used the old type Sutton seatbelts
