Which 'this' are you talking about?

I wouldn't know about any of that. This is an ugly airplane and only has a 
place in my collection because I want a complete collection and generous 
Shane sent it to me for Secret Santa.
I have no references, or even a cursory knowledge of the Be series, and even 
if I did have references, I'd have lost them in the flood.
I'm just building this OOB and will actively turn a deaf ear towards any 
comments that would cause me to start modifying things and getting all AMS'd 
over it.

I also forgot to mention that one of my LG struts is broken on the sprue. I 
could fix it but I'm willing to put Roden's customer service to the test and 
see if they can get me a replacement by the time I'm ready for it. Who has 
the address where I can request that part?
