"Very easy starter kit"
masterchief191
This is a very good starter kit (but i say that about mostly all Revell plane models). It is very easy and is not detailed or have complicated parts, etc. If you're an experienced builder and just need something to build, this will only take you a few hours. It has very few parts. Regarding the strength of this model, it is brittle and will break extremely easily, especially the propeller, so handle that with care. Overall, this is a good starter model and is worth the price, you're getting what you paid for.

"Inaccuracy!"
clunymike
The discerning buyer may want to know that the markings are wrong. Plane number 14 in the AVG would have belonged to the 1st squadron which was the Adam and Eves. Rather than a red woman, it should have a green apple with a naked woman chasing a pilot (it's a depiction of the first pursuit for the first pursuit squadron. . get it?). The red woman was used by the 3rd squadron hells angels and I think their numbers began at 60. Also, AVG stands for American volunteer group, not All Volunteer Group. However, for $14 maybe it's worth it and you can build the USAAF or RAF versions. Maybe they're more accurate.

 
"P40 oldie but goody"
j w bolen (Ohio)
Older Kit, some of the decals cn be tricky but a great kit for a beginner with possibilities for advanced modelor to super detail. Built my first one in the mid 60s and did one recently. Graded it average as it lacks the detail of newer kts, but that is a plus for me as I don't want to invest months on any one kit. Lack patience in my advancing years. your mileage my vary of course

 
"An old mold, lots of problems"
jsaber09
This was the first kit I attempted after getting back into modeling after a 40 year hiatus. In theory it should be an easy kit to build, but it's not. The molds for this kit are quite old, at least fifty years, and there is a lot of areas where the fit is bad. Combine the poor fit with an inexperienced builder and it became a very frustrating build. The trouble spots for me were the fit of the wing root and the front of the aircraft around the guns, and the landing gear housing. The exhaust pipes are not supported well in the design, and at one point I picked up the model by the front and popped the pipes into the fuselage, and there is no way to get them out again. In short, I've seen people build this into a nice model, but it takes a lot of experience. But for a kid who is not that concerned with the fit, it's probably fine.
