A kit that doesn't compete with more modern offerings
By jimmbbo May 5, 2015
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.

Disappointing
By Caconnell91 February 17, 2015
This model has very little parts or detail really. I'm kinda dissapointed in the overall quality since I've built other Revell models and enjoyed them. A seasoned model builder could prob build this in about a hour.

Nice kit
By BlucherFamily August 8, 2015
A good kit, that is typical of Revell's excellentt value for money. Exterior detail is good, and the interior detail is quite acceptable given that the cockpit canopy is closed. Extra attention in the exterior paint job, to excentuate the existing detail, and add some weathering produces a very realistic looking result without much effort.

Good build for the skill level.
By Dccsrps April 25, 2016
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!
