"As expected"

Accuracy as expected for 1/72nd Tamiya kit. Should go together quickly for a wargaming model.

"Overall Good"
firekosc
There really isn't a whole lot to say about this model. It's Tamiya, and it's WWII. The fit is fantastic, detail is good, etc. It's actually an older kit, but all panel lines and rivets are recessed. The decals are well printed, and thinner than Tamiya decals usually are, but they are as insufferable to work with as ever. If you go for the option I did, with the multicolor fuselage band, it isn't even remotely close to the correct shape. Another thing to look out for- even though my kit was still in the shrinkwrap, the decals had gone a bit yellow. A couple weeks taped to a window in direct sunlight solved this, but the decals didn't stop looking faintly yellow until they were placed in the water. I'd find a decal you aren't going to be using and test it before you decal your model. The only other thing to note is the lackluster fit of the rear canopy. The slot it is supposed to slide in is too small, and the place were the canopy frame meets the fuselage is too thick to allow it to be posed open. Some minor plastic surgery would be required to do that. Even posing it closed, I had to take a sanding stick to the tab that's supposed to fit into the sliding slot to get it to sit flat. Just keep an eye out for those things, and you'll be able to build a fantastic addition to your collection.
