This kit scared me at 1st because of all the struts at this scale. However this was unfounded the struts went on easily and without glue. The tail wing was a little annoying there are 2 tail wings that go into the fuselage at the same time. They will need to hold one another in to stay in place So I glued them together. The rest of the kit was super easy. The canopy will be impossible to paint once installed due to the struts so paint that before assembly.
