Inspired by this thread, I printed out some US Navy planes, among which was a nice Helldiver. After putting some serious effort into the building, I found that the tail piece does not fit. The markings don't line up and the end that attaches to the mid section of the fuselage is too big. This is the aspect of building paper models that really kills it for me. I have a large number of non-finished models in my home, where I suddenly ran into a serious design mistake and a part did not fit.

Well, I didn't give up. Not just yet. I found out why the rear part is larger. But things still don't line up. If they did, the issue of the rear part being bigger would have been self explanatory. This little model is so close to being a gem...
