Where do you keep big planes like this to keep them out of harm's way?
On a shelf with the rest of them!
Note that the rest of them have nose probes and antenna broken off over the years, so i don't know how out of harm's way it actually is.

Any comments on the quality of the kit? I read that the nose has issues.
I think I ordered it as soon as I saw it on Squadron's website. Too cool to pass up. The reason I built it right away was that the box was so friggin huge, I couldn't find any place to put it!!!
Shape issues with the nose, you mean? I don't know about that. Fit and engineering of the whole kit is excellent, though.
Whatever weapons mix you choose, you'll have about a million weapons left over. The kit has every missile, tank and bomb the damn thing can carry. I was going to load up the inner pylons with MERs full of small bombs, but the plane took me 4 weeks to build, and I couldn't face another week of assembling 24 (or so) bombs. There's a point I just wanna finish and move on to the next model!
