"Difficult - Not for the beginner"
curtbroo (Provo, Utah)
I like detailed and challenging models, however this model was a complete disappointment. There were few pegs and receiving holes to align the various parts. For instance the body had no alignment pegs. The only places where there was any alignment was where it had to be to have rotating prop - and the tolerances for the prop allows it to wiggle from side to side. (this is only one example) It is actually kind of amusing that with even the crappiest, cheapest models I've built in the past, they've had alignment pegs (even though sometimes they weren't truly aligned) The worst section was in trying to attach the upper wings. The struts had very small pegs and holes which did nothing to help align them. This allowed the struts to move significantly when attempting to attach the upper wing - extremely frustrating - after several attempts I finally got them mostly aligned. The struts should be designed so they can be set into the lower wing to allow for proper alignment. This also applied to the undercarriage, no pegs whatsoever - very poorly engineered and even after all my effort to align the wheels and struts, it was still misaligned after the glue dried - very annoying. The decals did not want to stick. Overall - I was extremely disappointed in this model and for the price ($56.69), it should have been much, much better - a complete rip-off. I would not recommend this model for anyone and as for myself, in the future I will avoid models designed by this company (RODEN). I would recommend that Hobbylinc drop this brand, or at least this model from their catalog.
