"Purchaced Based on Reviews"
Oscar M
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.

"Very Serviceable Little Kit"
This is a very competent little Zero kit. I think its closest competitor would be the Hasegawa or Tamiya one, however I have not built the Tamiya one so I won't discuss it further. As far as the Hasegawa kit, overall, I believe that the airfix kit is better. For one, it is cheaper. Additionally, this Zero comes with really nice cartograph decals, which have good color, conform to virtually all contours. I think that the Hasegawa kit has better surface detail, forgoing the well-known 'trench' panel lines that Airfix uses. The biggest benefit of this kit is the interior. From all the 1/72 Zero cockpit's that I saw, I think that airfix has managed to capture the best shape, especially in the sloping floor. I would even go so far as to say that this kit, besides MAYBE the FineMolds Zero, has the best off-the-shelf Zero cockpit in this scale. Overall, it's a good kit. It's cheap. I'd buy it again.

"Very nice"
jclemente1980 (Coimbra, Portugal)
These new mould Airfix model kits are simply astonishing Everything fits, it almost doesn't need glue. The Zero was a great plane, even if it didn't had good armour... It was fast, agile, and no rival to the p-40, as it surpassed it without much effort. we have a nice view of the radial engine, good cockpit detail, landing gear wells... simply perfect

"Great little kit"
This was a nice cheap little kit. The parts are pretty small so they can be a little tough for some people. The instructions were very easy to follow, and all of the pieces fit together pretty well. There is very little flash on the parts that needs to be cleaned up. This is a great plane for beginners and experienced modelers. It is cheap, so not a lot of money will be lost if a mistake is made.
