"Simple but nice mold"

Basic model but it is well made and shows well, especially with IJN carrier deck base painted as Akagi.

"Model fits really well with colorful decals"
ldrandel
Model was completed using almost no filler. Very nice fit except watch out for the upper wing-fuselage joint. Probably best to glue the top wing to each side of the fuselage and then glue on the bottom wing. This kit had really nice cockpit details and out of the box makes it possible to build a nice open canopy version. I used the kit decals and they worked very well for a very colorful, red-tailed, green over light gray scheme from the Soryu at Pearl Harbor that is provided. The kit decals included some nicely done yellow stripes to go over the red tail.

 
"Nice kit"
roncopperhead
I enjoyed this building this kit. Only problems I had were the canopy didn’t fit well and the rear machine gun mount is a bigger to install. As I matter of fact I discarded it. Other than that, it turned out nice.

 
"Very nice kit with excellent details."
davezz4 (Schaumburg, IL)
This is a very nice kit. I built the Shōkaku version. Assembly was was very good, Fit was pretty good only needed some very minor fill for wings to fuselage. The cockpit is well detailed and you have two canopy sets, one piece for closed and multiple pieces for open. The only challenging part is the landing gear. It would have been better if the gear shroud had larger alignment pins and possibly a locating pin. The wheels have a flat spot to give the look of weight on the tires. So trying to assemble the shroud and keeping the tires aligned for the flat spot can be difficult. The decals are nice. They conform to the surface and went on with no problems. I enjoyed building this and it makes a nice addition to my collection.
