Spotlight Review

"F-4U Corsair Birdcage"
ricmac50 (el paso, texas)
I was impressed with the size of the model considering the price of the model, very reasonable for a 1:32 scale model. I did enjoy building and modifying the engine which I proceeded to make into a highly detailed engine. Few flashing parts but overall not bad and a few alignment issues but none that can't be resolved with a little work and patience. Model size is nice and makes for an easy assembly model. Overall model rates between a four and five star, so I'll ,go ahead and rate it a five.

"Good model, tricky assembly of wings"
As the information says, the wings on this one can be folded up. The mounting for this is a tad difficult, so don't rush. WAIT for the glue to really bond and dry or you will be doing this over and over and over. Same for the landing gear. That said, this is a big model that paints easy and the rest comes together easily. You won't be disappointed if you put the time in on this one. I gave it a Good rating and not excellent because of the wing mounting system for the folding wings.

"First Model In A Long Time!!"
twincitylines (American Fork, UT)
This is the first model that I am building in a long, long time. Like others, I found some flash on the parts, but nothing I can't live with. It's a fun model to do since it's been a long time since I've done anything in plastic. I'm taking my time with this model.

"The Bent-Wing Bird"
jimwoodward1943 (Broken Arrow, OK)
Not much flashing -parts fit well - instructions could use some improvement especially the build of the engine and the manifold in the rear - other than that it was a fun build. I glued the wings into the down and fixed position - too much hassle to try to have folding wings
