This the reason why I like keeping two kits at hand, just in case. Sorry about this, buddy, and I hope you can fix it.

please guy let me know what you think or if you have tips it realy dose help me become a better builder

You might wanna file down the door jams alittle, it may hit the seat, and thin out the door edges too, that way it'll look more realistic. Just my .02

Dragon-

So far your work is looking good to me. Pretty adventurous work. I still hate doing opening doors on a model, and I've been building for years. I only have one suggestion. You may want to see about getting a higher quality of putty. That green stuff tends to shrink as it dries, and it takes a looooonnngggg time to dry fully. You will probably end up with sink marks in your model in the next few months due to it. It is a great way to ruin a beautiful build. Ask me how I know!! If you can afford it I'd go to a automotive store (Napa, or the like) and buy some Evercoat (I think it was glazing putty). I think last time I bought some it was around $16- $18 but comes in a large container. I'm sure other guys here can give you some other ideas of good quality putty. Fortunately for me I build so slowly and usually have a few projects that I rotate through that any shrinkage is caught before I hit the paint stage. LOL!

Later-

Later-
