"Not bad- good value"
3rdslow411
This kit is not all bad. I have several of these old dogs. Yes the folding wings are difficult, but they can work. Yes the landing gear is difficult, but they can work too. Yes the gear bay doors are really bad. BUT- if you glue the wings closed, the gear bays closed- you have a decent model for $13.

"Pretty good kit"
masterchief191
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.

 
"Not a bad kit"
polockman (Lagro, IN)
This is an average kit. The instructions are pretty straight forward and the parts are designed well enough to give a good fitl. Like in several other reviews, I too had issues with attaching the folding wing tips - but I think I found what the issue is. In step 5 of the Instructions, they show part #'s 20 and 18 being attached upside down. I think if you put the offset on those 2 parts facing down instead of up; the wing tips will fit on nicely. Unfortunately, I had glued them on already as shown, so I was unable to check my theory. If you purchase this kit, tape those pieces on like I suggested first and see if the wing tips will match up then.

 
"Good Possibilities"
aliporace
I've read many reviews that bash this model and especially the outer wings. I agree with most of them, especially if you are looking to build this one in a weekend. My approach is a much longer timeframe, I spend the time to get the best results a kit can deliver. This one is one of those kits. Yes you need to sand, fill, trim, fit and spend some time getting things lined up and working. But the end result can be a beautiful bird. Not quite the detail of today's model kits but I do get a lot of positive feedback on this one in my collection. Let's face it, the gull wings make this one instantly recognizable and if you have patience, it can be a very good model, especially for the money. I would recommend building this one if you are a patient builder. A true American classic fighter.
