Thanks guys!
The Gloster is very low to the ground. I should have called it the Gloster Corgi.

Kitnut617 - I've used my 3D printer to make functional objects, mostly cases for electronics projects. FDM printers aren't quite there for extensive model making 9at least with the quality/resolution I want) but they're good for relatively low detailed parts, and for proof of concept models that go on to be printed with a higher resolution printer.
I'm printing in ABS (which can be a real pain) but my printer is enclosed so there's no smell and minimal warping. ABS (and High Impact Styrene) are great for modeling since you can smooth the surface with Acetone vapor and the parts can be glued to model kit plastic with regular plastic cement, like Tamiya extra thin.

Carl - this kit really does have a bathtub for a cockpit!

I hope you remembered the drain plug. Wouldn't want the pilot going "down the tubes"!
