Step 1: The reviews on Esci´s Skyraider say that the italian manufacturer´s kit is not their best model. I like Esci´s kits and i have few waiting to be build in my stock. I ran a dry fit test and identified some weak points, but overall it did not show any hard places to correct. There will be some filling and sanding, but this no problem. Here are some pictures of the test:
