"F7F-3 TigerCat . One Incredible Airframe w/ Monster Powerplants"
JRB (Burleson, Texas)
As a kid of the Baby Boom generation and the dependent of an Army Aviator, I grew up interested in all things military and especially of the aviation variety. I also was very taken by the periods of the Korean and Vietnam conflicts. This monster twin engine plane was a beast in the Korean airspace. It was a very easy build and simple. The radials and their mounting was a pleasure to put together. The only issue I had was in determining which of the 5 choices of unit designations to build. I would recommend this plane to any degree of modeler, especially any with the same fondness I have for these eras. I enjoyed building it and it is a nice addition to my ever-growing collection. See my photos.

"Acceptable Kit"
I'd give it 3.5 stars if I could. The fit was not the best, but I've built worse models too. Difficult to get it to not be a tail sitter, but it can be done if you use all the space it has. But it is an interesting airframe that is worth building for your collection.

"An old AMT/Ertl Kit"
johncpo41 (www.hobbiesinabarn)
This kit is average to say the least, being a re-issue and using old forms which are showing their age as flash is on many parts of the wings.The cockpit interior is a basic bathtub style with little hope of seeing the interior and the RADAR operator compartment in the rear of the cockpit is totally lacking any details. The rest of the kit appears devoid of any detailing possibilities so I'll paint it accordingly. I purchased an aftermarket decal sheet as the original kit sheet looks as if the decals will disintegrate. The aircraft's history is included in the instructions and shows the actual aircraft was short lived but a good idea. I'm looking forward to adding this model to my Korean war era models. I recommend this kit to anyone with experience.

This is my first Italeri kit so I am excited to see how it assembles. Follow up review to come. I have heard good things about their kits so we shall see. From the review of the parts everything looks well made and not a lot of flash like in some kits.
