I really enjoyed this kit. It is VERY close to perfect. Overall, detail is quite nice. All the panel lines are clean and recessed, and detail is present all over. A couple of small pitfalls, however- for whatever reason, Revell molds the wheel wells as a flat, solid piece. However, the bottom of the cockpit tub and the inner sides of the fuselage are both represented quite nicely. I would advise that you take something like a Dremel and cut out that part of the wheel well- it really adds to the final look of the model. The other big problem is the canopy. I have no idea what Revell was doing with this canopy. Everything else is well modled, well detailed, and well fitting. However, the canopy is just terrible. It is misshapen, doesn't fit, is very fragile, and is very foggy. I used an old canopy from a Hasegawa kit, and that fixed the problem. Overall, It's a good kit, and would make a good candidate for this plane in this scale. In this scale, it's only real competitor is the new Airfix kit.
