"Not bad for a second first model"
mbwillett
I haven't put together a model in about 25 years. My first plan was a difficult F-117 at about 12 years old. I didn't purchase this kit from here but this was a pretty easy kit to build and most all pieces went together well. Nice sprues and very little flashing that needed to be trimmed. This was my first attempt at water slide decals and I learned some lessons. I'll be trying more of these e-z build kits as they make nice planes and then I'll move into one a bit more difficult.

"Good Small Scale Model"
Mike (Texas)
This is a nice 1/72 scale kit from Hobby Boss. Fit and detail are good for the size. It can be built with the landing gear up or down but no parts move except for the propeller. The cockpit has some detail but there is no pilot figure. Of course at this scale without an open canopy, it is difficult to see into the cockpit anyway. Still, I always enjoy having figures with my models. I hadn't built a model since my sons were young and bought this to see if my grandson would show any interest. I really enjoyed the build and have already bought several new models. I've decided to build everything in 1/72 scale to get a perspective on the comparative size of different craft throughout history.

 
"Missing pieces"

Came with no canopy. There was no indication nor part to secure the propeller in place.

 
"A good and cheap kit."
hhpodesta
This Hobby-Boss F6F-3 as advertised is really an easy assembly kit, for example, the fuselage comes in one piece, and the wing and lower fuselage is a single piece so you may have a seam to fill. with less than 30 parts, this kit can be assembled in an short afternoon. The level of detail is Ok, especially given its size and its price. The cockpit is very simple, but also Ok, mainly because you can't see that much from the outside. The kit comes with a drop tank. Decals are very good, (for two options). My main complaint is with the canopy, to me it looks a bit thick. If you care about accuracy, there are other better options. But given its price, it is a very good option for people who are building a collection, like me. Recommended for that.
