OVERALL I'M A FAN OF TRUMPETER KITS, THIS ONE IS NO EXCEPTION! STARTING WITH MY LIKES=THE KIT HAS A TON OF DETAIL, THE TAILHOOK/REAR LANDING GEAR WAS A NICE FEATURE. I LOVE THE SEE THROUGH COWLING AND LEFT HALF OF IT CLEAR TO SHOW OFF THAT BEAUTIFUL RADIAL ENGINE DETAIL! THE COCKPIT WAS DECENT FOR A STOCK SETUP. ALSO LIKED THE RUBBER TIRES, I HATE PAINTING THE PLASTIC ONES! I PERSONALLY DON'T CARE FOR TRUMPETER'S METHOD FOR FLAP AND AILERON HINGE POINTS SO I JUST GLUED THE FLAPS IN THE DEPLOYED POSITION, ADDITIONALLY I DID NOT HAVE THE WINGS FOLD, AND I GLUED THEM IN THE FLIGHT POSITION. (I WANTED LONGEVITY OVER FUNCTION) (PERHAPS MY SKILLS NEED IMPROVEMENT) THE ONLY REAL NEGATIVE WAS THE DECAL SHEET, THE WHITE STARS ARE ALMOST TRANSPARENT AND THE BLUE FUSELAGE COLOR BLEEDS THROUGH. I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS KIT AND OBTAINING AN AFTERMARKET DECAL SHEET
