great price, not the best model
By clunymike November 19, 2017
Generally I have a high opinion of Hasegawa products, so it is with regret that I have to say this was not the best model. I think this kit must come from ancient molds because there is tons of flash and the fit is very poor. Itís also missing some rather important details. For example, the wheel housing is pretty sparse, and the torpedo should have extra fins, but doesnít. Aside from that, it still has fairly good detail in panel lines etc., however, many of those details are often lost because of the poor molding and serious issues with fit. I had to trim, sand, putty, and cuss to an extraordinary degree to get the pieces to look halfway proper. The canopy is also very thick, so that one side shows a reflection of the other (itís a weird optical illusion!). On a brighter side it comes with three decal and painting options. But again, there are only a few decals for each option, and the painting guide (especially for the Hiryu version) leaves much to be desired. For an easier cleaner build, youíd probably be better off going for the Airfix version.

The Kate
By woofdogmeow February 27, 2018
This kit was disappointing The biggest tick off was the landing gear I wanted my gear up but The wheels are too large to fit in the wells. So I had to widen the wells and cut the landing gear cover to cover the rest of the wheel well as it comes only in the wheels down position. This is not my 1st scratch build so I got it to work The landing gear will be fine if you build them in the down postion. The engine assembly was not the best fitting but can be made to work. The painting chart is not great either as I was hoping to use the carrier decals akagi or Hiryu would be fine instead I have to mix paints to get the colors listed annoying So the red tail land based squadron is the easiest color scheme. The tail hook also had no hole in the fuselage attached it taking a best guess on the position. I would suggest getting another companies Kate this one isn't worth it.
