I nominate Revell's 1:32 (2019) Me 262A as the worst fitting kit of 2019

A 2019 kit with the worst fit I've ever encountered so far. I don't understand how Revell got the fit of the engines to the wings so wrong. The nacelles don't even follow the curvature of the wings, and the inner cowl doors have huge gaps. I even had to enlarge the channels where the nacelles should fit because they had extra plastic moulded into them.

Has anyone who have built this kit found the fit of the engines to the wings to be so poor? Even the old tool Hasegawa kit had better fit.

 

See for yourselves:

Thats because its a 1970’s tooling. It was re-issued in 2018 and 2019

It isn't the 1970's tooling. It's the 2019 tooling, which came after the B-1a/U1.

Wait until you get to work with the 1/32 F-18F... the build instruction book starts off with telling you to cut/shunt the kit parts because otherwise they won't even fit or are incorrect.

I am sorry to hear about your experience with the Me 262 model!  I built the new kit last year and it was very nice.  It is still waiting for a camouflage, but the plastic parts were excellent quality.  


Best wishes
