"fun build, but disappionting finish. . ."
clunymike
Have you ever had it happen that you’re at a burger joint, and you’re really enjoying your burger, and then just before your last bite you notice half a cockroach in the burger? Well, this model isn’t quite that bad, but similar. Although there’s nothing super special about it, but it’s a fun little build. There’s not much flash, the pieces fit well, and if you’re looking for a quick fun model for between your more serious projects, this is it. But then you get to the decals (the half a cockroach). I only learned this after the fact, but apparently Academy is infamous for particularly bad decals. In fact, if you look at this model on the actual Academy website, you’ll notice that even they didn’t use their own decals! They painted on the roundels etc.! These decals will not stick, they will not snuggle down no matter how much or what type of setting solution you use (Seriously I tried several), and they silver like crazy. I left the decals on for my pictures so everyone could see how bad they look. So, if you want a fun easy model, buy this one. . . but get some aftermarket decals too!

"An ok kit with some flaws"
rovert815
Academy is known for having average kits. They will go together, but are very light on detail and require a good bit of work to bring them up to modern standards. This is no exception. The trailing surfaces need thinning, the cockpit needs detailing, and the decals need replacing. I have not had good luck with academy decals. They require very careful trimming and often dont stick at all. However, with those shortcomings, its a quick build that can benefit from a skilled hand and a bit of scratchbuilding.

 
"Not The Best Kit But Ok For Practice"
imageArtCo (Bayonne, NJ)
I agree with the negative reviews preceding mine. The kit is average with fit problems and the decals are below standard. The stripes do not match any of the research photos I have found, nor does the artwork on the cover. It is a good kit to hone your skills as far as learning to fix problems with a sub-par model. If that is not your cup of tea, avoid this kit.

 
"Good Value"
a22046
Pros: -Good value (very inexpensive) -parts were molded very well compared to the similar Revell kits with minimal cleanup. Cons: -only one decal set -Minimal interior detail -there is no paint scheme. Seriously, they tell you where the decals go and give you a black-and-white picture of the plane with NO paint colors in the instructions. Not too big of a deal, but annoying.

Comments

  • Keep small parts and sharp edges away from children.
  • Care should be taken when using tools and modeling knives.
