A week ago I bought the 1875mm version from HobbyKing. Since it seems to be the best of the lot, my intention is to:
Sand off the whole paintjob with 400 grit wet & dry,
Fill all the panel line trenches, & sand back the whole thing
Reroute the elevator & rudder pushrods internally
Cover the whole shebang in lightweight tissue & WBPU sanding back afterwards
Modify the retracts to look more scale
Redo the whole paintjob
Luckily I still have all the decals from the old Marutaka B-17 which caters for the 'Memphis Bell' or alternatively the 'Lady Luck' (Triangle A with red tailfeathers % wingtips)
