"Better than other options"
This TINY kit was a blast to put together. I had no issues in construction and used no filler. The paint being the hardest part of the whole kit. I do, however, wish they would have included metal landing gear for the nose if nothing else to help with the tailsitter issue. Even with adding as much weight in as I could, it still needs help from blue tac to stay on all 3 wheels in the case. It also would have helped with the breakage issue - I broke the nosegear at least 2 different times. I wouldn't have given this kit a second look but for some reason It just called to me. I'm glad I picked it up.

"Bad academy kit"
A bad kit for me, it has very poor details and fit problems, it needs a lot of putty. Better buy a hasegawa version.

"Great Kit!"
This is a fantastic kit. It's a small and manageable project if you're a beginner, but has great detail for more advanced builders. The large, wide canopy is great for showing off the cockpit detail in open or closed positions. There are many options for how to build it, such as the choices of under-wing weapons and whether or not to include the in-flight refueling probe. The exterior has very finely detailed panel lines, and it's an unusual shape that attracts attention among other models when on display. It comes with multiple options for the paint-scheme. From memory, I think they're USAF (in Vietnam), South Vietnamese Air Force or United States Air National Guard, all of which come with plenty of decals. Good: High detail inside and out, good fit of parts, multiple paint scheme options, interesting subject matter Bad: Can't think of anything!
