"Nice kit"

Very happy with the result. Decent detail for this scale. Cowling placement is a little tricky. Recommend.

"If it weren’t for the decals. . ."
clunymike
This is a fun little build. For the price it has good detail. It has very nicely molded recessed panel lines and lots of molded detail in the cockpit. The fit isn’t bad, but watch out for the engine cowling, it will look super weird unless you get it to sit just right, which is a little bit of a challenge. Other than that there wasn’t much sanding or filling to do. Of course my perennial complaint is that Academy Decals are terrible. After everything else fails, you have to use extra thin glue for them to look halfway decent, but be careful because you can ruin everything very quickly with this method if you don’t get it just right.
