"Good build for the skill level."
Dccsrps
This was my second build, and offered an opportunity to practice new techniques. Model went together fairly well, and required a little filler on the top and bottom of the fuselage, but nothing drastic. Left strut cover mold only partially filled leaving about half the cover over the wheel missing. Canopy had bad spots at both the front and rear that I managed to at least tame a bit, but we're left cloudy and looking a bit fractured. The canopy also didn't mate with the fuselage very well and also required a bit of filler. All in all, I liked building this one and will more than likely build the other variant for practice before moving on to more detailed examples. If you are just starting out, this is a great model to start out with!

"A kit that doesn't compete with more modern offerings"
jimmbbo
This is another of Monogram's reboxed '60s kit, produced during the transition from models with toy like features to the age of truly scale models. To tap into popular airplanes back in the day, Monogram turned out a Zero, Me-109, Fw-190, and Spitfire in the new 1/48 scale. The Zero was among their earliest attempts, and by more modern standards, it lacks detail when compared, say to a 1990s Tamiya Zero for about the same price... This kit is a quick, easy build that looks like a Zero, but is not at all competitive with more recent offerings. For a child's first model with minimum parts count that will likely be broken in a week, it is worthwhile. Otherwise, look elsewhere.

 
"Fun build"
ryan_mowat_9
It was a fun build, a little frustrating as the box seemed to be missing the propeller shaft, but using a piece of the sprue you can easily make one. Landing gear is a little iffy, either completely stationary or jiggly. BUT, I had a load of fun building it which is what matters the most! Good for a first or second, maybe even a third build.

 
"Ye Olde zero kit"
woofdogmeow
This is a old monogram kit it has good features like actual working landing gear that is easy to install and mostly idiot proof. The prop spins and the wheels will turn if you use the old hot knife method of melting the tip of the pin holding the wheel on allowing the wheel to spin. The interior is spares as you can't see in it anyway due to the way the canopy will be heavily painted. The texture of the fuselage is old school with raised rivets this is considered a no no for todays perfectionist but for the average kid builder for which this kit is meant it will do quit nicely. There is a whole series of these kits that I will be collecting just because of the ease to build and the landing gear feature.
