I took advantage of the 50% discount on 10227 this weekend. Overall, I think it's a great set, it looks amazing, especially for the price. That said, some of the issues that have been reported multiple times are things I'd like to attempt to fix over time. I'm just curious if anyone out there has made any successful modifications to the set, and if so, can you kindly share?
Here are some of the top things that come to mind (and are well documented by many online).
- Rear area of the cockpit - attaches with 2x2 plate and is very prone to falling off. It appears that if part # 4538721 (http://www.brickset.com/parts/?part=4538721) was longer it would do the trick. Has anyone more securely fastened the rear of the cockpit?
- The lower gun pod also attaches just using studs and could really benefit from something more secure (pins maybe). Any gun pod mods to share?
- The gaps between the smooth "hull" pieces above and below the engines is disappointing. This seems like a really hard one to fix, anyone found a solution?
- Lastly, any stand mods?
Well, that's, thanks for reading.
