"The Perfect Aircraft Kit"
johncpo41 (www.hobbiesinabarn)
The model fills the gap within the model aircraft selections. The kit is well designed for the beginner or advanced modeler and with easy to read instructions and concise diagrams the kit will go together with out any major problems. As shown the dive brakes can be shown either out of in and the landing gear is detailed enough to have shown in the down position. The details are enough to show off some of the actual aircraft.

"Cheap, easy, looks good"
The only issue, which can b easily rectified are the wing flaps. Contrary to the directions, u can't leave them in an open position, u HAVE to glue them together and to the bottom of the fuselage. Otherwise, the fuselage and wings all come together flush, and i really cant complain. The rear gunner and his machine gun fit perfectly through the canopy, as does the pilots frontal gun! Great kit, cheap and worth it!

so i spent ALOT of time on this model as i wanted to make it better. i used a small drill bit and battery operated drill to drill out the individual holes for the air brakes. i couldnt believe how much better it looked once it was in paint and mounted. i started with just doing one side to see the difference and what a difference it makes. WAY more realistic but took a ton of time to drill the holes out then sand the edges down but, again, it was well worth it. the aircraft itself went together well with no real gaps or filler needed. the cocpit is quite bare but dressed it up with some paint and such. could have been a bit better but it looks great for being such a cheap kit.

"Takes some work"
I enjoyed this kit overall. There were some problems with fit, so you will have to modify the parts to come together properly. Also, the air brakes were a bit problematic at first, but once you get them fit together, they open and close together nicely. Extra figures can add more background story to the model if you want. Finally, directions were clear and concise.
