Spotlight Review

"Tribute to “That’s All Brother” lead paratroop plane to Normandy on D-Day."
I build this to look like this plane I had a chance to see at an Air Show. I painted the stripes since another review warned of the decals and used numbers from other kits to make the numbers on the tail accurate and used a stencil to paint the W on the tail. It is a very nice kit and my 1st experience with Photo etch, 30 sets of seat belts in all. Look up the plane on google and read the story of restoration, It was found junked and restored by Commemorative Air Force. Had to free hand nose art, but couldn’t find anything else to do it with. It was fun and turned out ok, We like it anyway.

"Overall good kit. Not for a beginner, instructions lacking."
Fit was decent. Still needed to test fit, and file some pieces to get them to fit. But overall it went together nicely. Instructions are horrid. Barely any color call outs on a lot of the parts. I didn't use any of the kit decals, masked and painted the markings, so I can't speak for those. I do like the level of detail in this kit. An improvement over the old Monogram. Just make sure to get the Quickboost corrected rudder.

I built this kit many years ago and with the best intentions of having a D-Day invasion version. The first problems were with the decals which I would recommend to be after market. The kit decals peeled after about a year and as of today I completely changed the whole aircraft decal sets into RAF as a plainly marked version without the invasion markings. After care research of actual aircraft I noted the fact that many marking existed during WW2 and I set off to improve the model's look to some degree and received many Likes and good comments from a group that follows this aircraft and any models and photos. I would highly recommend the kit to anyone for the simplicity of construction but be forewarned that the wingspan is 24 inches. But the wings are removable which is a redeeming feature. So be ready to get after market decals or use ones you might have in your extra box as I did. I even had markings for making a plane from Portugal.

Enjoyed putting this model together however, found it a bit challenging to figure out how many pieces fit together. Without worded instuctions, supplied picture instructions were not always clear using arrows pointing to locations. Too many times required separating completed parts to reclue. Take it slow, be careful and be patient both with assembly and disassembly and then reassembly, especially if you are unsure.


Actual model may vary from image on box Due to many small parts that could become a choking hazard, please keep away from children 3 years of age and younger.
