"Good Value, Some Time & Patience Required"
A good value for the money. Expect to spend time filling, sanding and trimming if you're picky about the finish model detail. For an older kit you can end up with a great looking Tiger Shark with some time and patience. This one won't give you the out-of-the-box seamless fits and detail of a Tamiya model for example, however you still can end up with a very good likeness of a true classic. Every collection needs a Tiger. I went with the AVG version and am quite happy with it. This one takes me back to model building as a kid, which is okay every now and again. After three straight Revell-Monograms, it's back to Tamiya or Eduard for the next one. Overall it is a fun build and I would recommend it.

"An old mold, lots of problems"
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.

The plastic used might be from recycled plastic, the egg shell is strongest than this kit. The color is very nice but the engraved details are poor and on some areas non existing. be careful when make your choice, Tamiya, Eduard or Hasegawa are more expensive but you get what you've paid for...

"Very easy starter kit"
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.
