Extremely detailed kit with many tiny fragile parts such as pitot tubes, antenna, wing lights. Built the Bock's Car version (same parts, different decal choices).
Instructions could use more close up detail to determine the positioning of parts. For example, the interior decks are very detailed but it is not clear what side of the ribs in the fuselage they go on. You will be required to repeatedly test fit as you assemble the aircraft. The bomb bay racks are supported by reinforcement pieces to maintain their shape that need to be removed. This is a very difficult process since the supports are thicker than the bombs frames. Sprue mounts are thick, use caution removing pieces.
There are additional pieces included with the kit such as propellers plexiglass parts. Acadamy must use the same kit for the post WWII B-50 version (larger tail however is not included). Gun turrets and guns are included but not used since they were removed to save weight for the Atomic bombers.
This kit has no crew figures. The only moveable parts are the propellers. Ailerons, flaps, rudders and landing gear are all fixed parts.
