"Pretty good kit"
This is a pretty good kit. I would rate this at something a bit above a starter kit. The price is fair on it and it has a bit more detail than expected from a lower end Revell model. The gears can be made to be adjustable/operate along with the wings (just a detail i like to see in models), but you have to be careful with the gear covers if you make them operable. One of the big problems i always find with Revell is the strength of the plastic. This one is has some strength to it so it wont be prone to breaking while handling or building. This is not a bad kit, i suggest it. If you're a starter builder, this is a good challenge to step your skills up.

"Awesome plane, good kit"
rockykeele (Tucson, AZ)
The Good: Reasonable price, fair amount of detail, good decals. The Bad: Moderate number of parts, flash on many parts, scale of pilot. For the price, this is a nice, simple kit, but don't expect the detail or number of parts you would get from a Hasegawa kit, for example. The kit does come with a center-line drop tank, two bombs and 10 under-wing 5 inch rockets. The pilot figure seems a bit too small for 1/48 scale. Overall, a fun kit with only a few minor issues.

"Interesting kit with operating features but need a lot of work to make it look good. You need lots of patience for this one."
wyee (Virginia)
My kit sat in my closet for decades before I decided to build it. It looked good but requires a lot of patience and inventiveness. I used this kit as a test bed to experiment and gain experience with unfamiliar techniques. I liked kits that have operating features and this one have folding wings and retractable landing gears/doors. This was a plus but also a minus. On the minus die, the operating features required precise fits and robust mechanics. Unfortunately this kit had very poor fit in a number of places. The wings don't fit well and the hinges could be easily broken. The gear mechanics worked well but the doors were extremely poor fit and looked horrible when closed. The wind screen and canopy pieces were too small for the frame and required fabricating new ones. Overall, the pluses were price/value and operating features and the negatives were the poor fits and awkward folding wings.

"worth the trouble, great bargain!"
first i want to say how much i love the results of this build. but phew, what a delicate, tedious,sometimes frustrating build it was! plan on re-doing the wing hinge pivot points a couple times to make them fold. even though there are positive locating pins to position them inside the wing halves, they locate them in the wrong spot, and i resorted to prying the wing halves apart and moving them a couple times. also quite a bit of filing and shaping was necessary to allow the folding section to clear the center section adequately to fold without binding. the retractable landing gear required a lot of test fitting to decide which direction to assemble the various parts correctly. i don't have the stomach to try and retract them, for fear of breaking them off, but i think they are put together right, and they look great. that pretty much sums up this kit: when it's done, it looks great! but what a time putting it together. i'm very proud of the results. i would recommend this kit to rather experienced modelers, because it actually is challenging to build, and would(and probably has) frustrate inexperienced builders without considerable patience. overall, though, an inexpensive, convincing model of a great piece of aviation history, and a nice addition to my collection of 1/48 scale warbirds. recommend only to experienced builders.
