I took out the fuselage halves and test fitted the tail fin pieces earlier tonight. My question to Airfix was why did they have to make the separation lines so difficult to join?

I look forward to your work!!!!

Apparently, Roy Sutherland (Barracuda) worked on this kit. He is acknowledged on the instructions. Mayhaps, he could help?
