Okay, but bad cockpit.

When I first opened up the kit I was surprised with the detail of the fuselage and overall the exterior was quite nice, however the cockpit had no instruments and the seat was poorly diagrammed and I ended up using a painted piece of cardboard instead of the seat since it wouldn't stay in place. Overall I think this was a well molded kit but the cockpit could have done better.
