"Great Kit w/two warnings"
audie.perkins (Oklahoma City, OK)
This is an awesome kit! It lends itself to a very high degree of detail so take your time with it. I didnt, so by the time I realized that I could have added some great details it was too late. Two cautionary notes though: 1. The nose requires 2oz (62g) of weight to prevent it from tail-sitting, thats a lot of weight to fit in there! 2. The five-piece canopy, mine anyway, had a large 1/8 gap between the top piece and the two side pieces. Not a problem if you pose it open. Id highly recommend this kit though, one of my most enjoyable to build....Ill likely build it again within a few years.

"Great kit"
Dave360cimopar70
Will purchase when available. I dont normally build planes but this was fun

 
"engineering flaw"
jonboy50
what a BIG beautiful model ! one design flaw is the wing. too much thin plastic that will warp. And, mine did. Now the wings are not even. Those outboard wings should have been engineered to to go on seperatly. Other than that issue, went together rather well.

 
"Do not buy this kit!"
abutt1
This kit looks like you're going to be able to build a wonderful model of this aircraft...but don't be fooled! Inaccurate illustrations in the directions. Parts don't fit. I've been building kits for 75 years. This one is one of the worst. It's not easy to throw out an expensive kit. But I have no other choice. This hobby is supposed to soothe nerves. This one makes you a screaming idiot!
