"good kit for the price"
if you have spent any amount of time looking at U2 kits, you know they can cost a pretty penny. this kit is priced right, and for the money it is a good build this kit fits well, there are the usual fitment issues on fuselage halves, nothing a bit of putty and sanding cannot fix. not many parts, witch isn't necessarily a bad thing, cockpit detail is slim, though when hanging from the ceiling you wouldn't know the cockpit was sparse. come with a cart that was used to move the aircraft. wings fit well, I trimmed a little of the wing spars to get them to fit into the wing slots on the fuselage. engine intakes required some putty and sanding to get a smooth finish. overall, for the price i am happy with the kit.

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.

Not worth the $$. Cool looking plane but not much to it. Bla, bla, bla. What there is requires TLC. Can build in a few hours. Molded in black but black paint improved the finish. Turned out OK .


Due to small parts that could cause a choking hazard please kee away from children 3 years of age and younger.
