"Pretty Alright, Given the Time"

Considering how old this kit is, it is pretty good. All the parts fit and there is very little flash. There are really only two downsides to this kit- the surface detail, and the decals. First up, the surface detail. Though there is an acceptable amount of surface detail, every panel line on this aircraft is raised. Some people don't mind this- but I am a huge fan of panel line washes. If you like them as well, be prepared to do an insane amount of rescribing. The other huge downside is the decals. I don't know about the natural metal with red tips scheme, but on the radar-equipped plane, the decals for the tail and wingtips are absolutely awful. They don't fit, and once you force them to fit, they don't conform at all, which is very problematic when all of your panel lines are raised. If you want a F-82 in 1/72, this is pretty much your only option. It is not bad, but be prepared to put in a lot of work to get it too that point.

"First build"
rodkuntz (Colorado)
This was my first kit after a long time of not building any plastic models. The fit was ok, lots bad seams however there was no flash and no injector pin marks where they would be seen. Detail is nice, but the panel lines are raised. The clear parts were very nice super clear and no distortion! The decals were on register and laid down well however they are thick so two coats of setting solution was needed. Nice little kit! It was fun to build.

 
"Old, but a definite classic"

This is a good kit, provided you keep its age in mind. The Revell Twin Mustang is the right shape, with adequate surface detail, although the panel lines are raised, which is an issue for some modellers. Parts fit very well for the most part. The twin cockpits have acceptable detail, which is somewhat ruined by a sliding mechanism for the canopies. A bit of work can remove the gimmick and produce a nice cockpit. The landing wheel bays are well-detailed, and the kit has a nice bonus in the form of a machine gun bay which can be posed open to display the guns. Also includes two drop tanks, two small bombs, a rocket pack, and a large radome to hang under the airframe. The kit comes with the choice of either the pictured bare metal/Arctic red machine, or an all-black night fighter from the Korean War. Both are eye-catching schemes for a unique aircraft. The instructions have a neat feature where each part is given a name, in addition to its number on the sprue; this gives a bit of extra educational impact to the kit.
