"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 great model"
build master
Great model of a great airplane. The details of this model are remarkable. Except for some of the clear pieces, very little trimming is needed. This is by far one of the best airplane models I have assembled.

"Famous aircraft"
nscrfns (Killeen, TX)
Big model, you'll need lots of paint. Parts fit is just OK, not great. Old molds with about average flash for a Revell kit. Very little interior detail. Strongly suggest PE sets to improve detail. Light trimming and/or sand needed around windows. Overall shape and dimensions are good. With a little extra care it can be made into a very nice aircraft. No provision for retracted gear although it can be done with a little extra work. Check references. Recommend watch crystal glue for machine guns in the nose to secure them to clear nose. Looks awesome hanging from the ceiling. Reasonably priced and good bang for the buck. Would love for Revell to make new molds and add detail to this famous aircraft.

"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.


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