No matter how many times I'm certain that I've cocked up and that things won't fit together they do.
How does this kit compare to the RV-12 in terms of the kit itself?

Finding someone outside the factory with personal experience of both the -12 and -14 kits seems like a real long shot. Those two models aren't typically cross-shopped, let alone built by the same guys. One's mission would have to seriously change to switch from either to the other.
