Ok Model

Once completed, the model looks really nice and realistic. However, it is a bit annoying to make as some of the parts don’t really fit properly together (the wings) and require a bit of editing so that they do. Despite this, I would still recommend this product.

Looks nice when done

Bought this a bit of fun, when complete looks nice nut a bit of work is needed on the fit of the undercarriage if not having wheels down also the wings need clamping in place to get a fit without gaps. Otherwise a nice little weekend project not for a beginner, but fin for kids who have built 3 or 4 kits

OK

I bought this kit as I thought it would be nice to go back and do some easier kits. However, despite it looking really nice when complete, I found the upper half of the wings to not fit at all. I had to heat it up with a lighter so I could bend it to fit the fuselage. A tip would be to do 1 coat of white paint before the gloss red (19) first as this makes the red really pop. Also I would recommend fitting the pilot and co-pilot as soon as the cockpit is ready as it was impossible to get them to fit when the kit says without amputating them up to the knee!
