"A quick build kit perfect for air combat diorama"
So much potential with this kit. I plan on having it chased by a corsair in a dog fight scene I am building.

"Amazing updated kit"
First off, this is an updated kit. If you see photos of the model with the green and grey paint job and the number 34 under the wing, that's the old style. The new version is IJN grey all over with red and beige fuselage stripes. I've built four of these kits, and I've used it for a beginning model class. It has the perfect mix of value, quality and detail. The sprues on all of the kits I've done were very clean. There was minimal flash, and the pieces fit together beautifully. There was very little sanding or puttying required. The detail is about as good as you can get without adding photo etch parts. One neat thing about the kit is the variety of options. The kit provides parts for landing gear either up or down, wingtips extended or folded, etc. Unfortunately the canopy doesn't open, but if you're super duper careful, you can cut it to the open position with a sharp hobby knife. This is a great kit for beginners (I had an 8 year old build one in my class) or experts given its forgiving nature and loads of detail and potential.

"Purchaced Based on Reviews"

I purchased this kit based on the reviews and am glad I did. I have not started it yet, but have test fit most of the pieces and am very happy with it. I am waiting on the arrival of a second kit so when I paint I can do both at the same time. This will allow me to mix enough paint for both kits. This also allows me to work longer. while the glue is setting on one I can go on to the other. For the price of this kit and quality I will most likely purchase more in the near future.

"Awesome Zero"
Airfix has really killed it with these new tool kits. This one is no exception. An excellent weekend build, or base for some super detailing with all the PE you can fit, the parts are clean and sharply molded. No flash was seen anywhere on my version. I had no fit issues and didnt need filler. Its worth noting that its the same kit that comes in the Zero/Wildcat double kit. This is a great kit for anyone at any skill level.
