There are some doublers to glue on the fuse, as well as 3 gyros, along with the computer controller and receiver.

Installing the pods onto the wings is a little tricky, as you must get the wiring routed through the tube.

Getting the center section seated in the scale body requires a little sanding and fitting.

There is a template included with the kit, for cutting out the openings for the landing gear. Double check the actual locations before cutting, as mine were just a little off. I used a light inside the fuse to copy the location on the outside before cutting and it worked out great.

I had to sand a couple of spots on the turtle deck cover for proper fitment. You also have to glue the horizontal stab in place and add the vertical stabs. The vertical stabs are just held on by a couple of screws.

While everything was apart, I also test fit the nacelle covers.
