This model is an original 3D design based on original North American Aviation blueprints available through  This model is not a 3D-printed copy of any plastic or resin kit's parts.  Therefore, it is sized, shaped and detailed differently than the parts in your Airfix kit.

This model is made of acrylic plastic.  Acrylic plastic does not behave like injection-molded polystyrene plastic or other resins.  Glues for polystyrene plastic, like "Testors Liquid Cement" or tube cement, will not work with acrylic plastic.  Cyanoacrylate (CA) "super glue" is recommended.
