"A real easy to build kit. Not perfect, but for $14 it sure comes close."
Shane S. (Dallas, Tx)
I just started building this kit. I've seen a LOT of reviews online and they mirror my own findings. The parts are molded well with minimal flash on most parts. The inside of the lower wing says copyright 1977 so i'm assuming that's how old the mold is. There are only roughly 50 pieces to this kit. Which would make it a real easy kit for beginners. Those looking for more detail may want to look elsewhere. The panel lines are raised rather than recessed like newer kits so using a pin wash to highlight them isn't an option here so pre-shading is the only way to add a bit of depth prior to weathering. And despite this not being a 300 piece kit where you're gluing the pilot's mustache on, etc. I think that it can still be made beautiful in the right hands. I only have basic skills myself and I am really surprised with how well the interior is turning out for as little detail as there is in there. I applied a little Tamiya weathering pigment to the surfaces in there and it really brought everything to life. I'm hoping the rest of the aircraft fares as well. Just take your time, pre fit the pieces before you start painting, and you'll be fine. I whole heartedly recommend this kit. It's $14. That's really inexpensive for a 1/48 scale kit. If you have a kid that is into model building or you're just getting started in it yourself and are a WWII aviation fan like I am then this kit should be spread out on your workbench being built. Only reason this kit isn't getting 5 stars from me was the lack of cockpit details. Even a decal for the instrument cluster would have sufficed. But seriously, Tamiya Weathering Master set. Get one of them too. And watch a youtube video on how to use it and you'll turn this thing into a real masterpiece.

"Another Revell Great"
johncpo41 (www.hobbiesinabarn)
I built this kit in 2005 as a part of a two aircraft set of Reno Racers planes, the other being the T-6 Texan another great re-issued kit. The Mustang is part of the history of WW2 so it should stand out as mine represents the ones first painted in camouflage olive drab though-out. The parts all fit together with no issues to speak and details were highlighted to some degree as the kit was aged being a re-issue at least one other time. As a dual kit set the instructions were somewhat limited in what would be best described as difficult for a beginning modeler. All things considered the aircraft kit stands with all others in quality from Monogram - Revell as one would expect.

"Worthwhile Project"
skimoose11
This kit was worth building. On the positive side, the detailing and decaling were excellent. My finished model looks almost identical to the picture on the box. It was a challenging and worthwhile project, and the airplane itself is gorgeous. On the debit side, the instructions were a tad vague and misleading. If you want to assemble Col. Lander's 84th Squadron version, make sure to use the Lf & Rt Shrouded Exhaust (16 & 42) INSTEAD of Lf & Rt Unshrouded Exhaust (17 & 43). Once the starboard and port halves are connected, it's too late to go back and correct. Also, I couldn't quite get the nose cone flush with the fuselage, and the fuel tanks were a little hard to connect. In summary, definitely a challenging and worthwhile project.

"BEST FIGHTER OF WWII GREAT MODEL!"
fredfredburger
Recently just finished it after getting it years ago. Great model, good price and the best fighter of WWII. Have patience with the WZ double decals and checkers one, use mending/masking tape to separate colors and paint lightest color first. Follow directions. I recommend airbrush/spray paint silver metallic for body. Revell-Monogram is the best bang for the buck brand. GOOD LUCK!
