I want to start by saying Why the Hate? YES.. There are seam issues but as Scale Modelers We Overcome. The kit is simple and very fun to build. All issues with the kit can be conquered with patience. The Longer you take the better the result will be..But lets face it ..its big and black. Its nice that they included 5 different decal variants, optional drop and wing tip tanks. A cool little ground cart is added for the fun of it and 2 pilots. AS usual.. the kit is not as important as the effort and FUN you put into it. Its not that expensive... the result is rewarding and you can spend the same amount of money on a 12 pack of Micro Brew Beer...My advice.. Buy the kit and ENJOY the challenge and the result.
