Nice build Sean. Having just completed this kit as the Italian night fighter I have to agree with you on the vague strut and wheel/ski mounting. I also found the additional exhaust for that version to be vague in how they were supposed to mount. The propeller shaft on my kit was broken off as well and while I did find it in the bag, it disappeared before I realized what it was. My only other complaint was that every part had a mold seam around it. Still a nice kit though.

Sean, those fighters in Swedish service make beautiful models. Your's does it justice!
