"A must-have"
By and large a good product, better in fact than I had hoped! Good details, a few minor adjustments needed insofar as getting some pieces to fit, but nothing too drastic. A couple of parts in this design of kit which seem to use a different colour and type of plastic do not seem to be compatible with the usual kit-cement and have trouble joining, but using something like UHU glue or Superglue appears to do the trick - just on these parts. Overall, a good replica of an uncommon aircraft which is a must for any modeller, like myself, who likes to include the rare-breeds.

"Nice kit for Special Hobby"
For a limited run model, this is a great kit. I only had issues with 2 pieces and they were minor. The PE tail landing doors had to be trimmed and the gun sight interfered with the canopy initially. The interior detail is really nice and fit nicely even though it has to be preassembled. You can't see much through the canopy but it comes with a 3 piece canopy so you could display it in the open position. For once, I didn't have to trim a bunch of parts and the build went together nicely. While the instructions were not the greatest in the world, careful planning and study of the directions will let you figure it out. The decals are good and 4 options are available with 2 different paint schemes. Exterior detail is also nice. Overall I was pleased with the kit as a whole and the finished product looked good. While I don't enjoy some Special Hobby kits, this one was a pleasant build.

"Rare kit but nice to have"
Got this model out of curiosity. It was nearing obsolescence when WW2 began in the Pacific. No match with the more powerful and advanced Japanese zero fighters but the great men who flew this aircraft gave a good fight against the invaders. This kit exceeded my expectations. Good design and construction. An exciting build for both beginners and intermediate modelers.
