"Great model but a lot of work"
Randy (Ohio, USA)
This is an old Revell kit which is a great subject but a lot of work. The molds are not good and the kit has a LOT of flash to be removed. The parts are sometimes hard to fit and the instructions a bit confusing in some areas. The plastic is so smooth paint is hard to stick to it. I love the way it turned out, but I would not recommend this kit for a beginner. I can only give it 4 stars under the circumstances.

"A real good kit but not perfect"
Shane S. (Dallas, Tx)
This is a real good kit of a really famous aircraft. My advise is that before you paint a piece, TEST FIT IT!!!. Especially the windows and the wings. The windows/openings required a tiny bit of trimming before they'd fit flush. And the way the wings mount, while making it easy to install with a very solid joint, care should be taken and pre-fit. Id advise installing them before painting as putty will certainly be needed if you're going for a seamless look. I built this kit quite a few years ago and she's still hanging from my ceiling.

"A Classic and an All-Around Sweetheart"

You've just got to love the principle of scaling up a highly successful smaller model into a bigger scale, as Revell did with the F-89, the 'Belle here, and probably some others. I can find troublesome challenges easily enough in the hobby, but there weren't any in the 1/48 'Belle. I've built it twice, both for other people. (My resident Fortress is a Monogram G converted to a PB1W.) For its size, this is a fast and easy project, and the results were delightful both times. You can approach this project with serene confidence, and allow for the fact that some people will always complain about nothing.
