"builds up nice"
wayne (Birmingham AL)
I enjoyed this kit very much. it has great detail and goes together ok. there are some fit issues with the fuselage halves but nothing to severe. it builds up into a nice plane.

"Impressive detail"
BlucherFamily (Overland Park, KS)
After having built several F6F kits from various manufacturers such as Revell and Hasegawa I must say how impressed I am with this kit and the other F6F kits from Hobby Boss. Even the paper that the instructions are printed on has a different, superior feel to it. The detail is exquisite especially the cockpit, and the wing interiors seen from the landing gear bay and the folded wings if that option is built. No overcast on the sprues and parts can be removed cleanly with little if any clean-up. The build is enjoyable and very smooth with no fit issues to deal with. All in all these kits are amzing quality for the low price and build into a very life like replica with detail that one can be proud of. Oh, and did I mention the canopies? The are much finer and the clear plastic thin enough that squadron Crystal Clear canopies can be done without if your budget is limited. Top marks to Hobby Boss for producing such anamazing kit.
