so i cant hate on italeri too much, being that they are really the only company to tackle the most widespread cargo aircraft in the world (which still confuses me). i'm in the air force and see these planes very regularly. this kit looks good from far but is far from good. its obvious that they used their old mold for the H model, which is fine but i would have expected a little more correction that they provided. the engine nacelles are totally the wrong shape, they were changed to fit the much more powerful engine for the J model. the sponsons on the side of the aircraft are too short, the intake on the right side is a big difference between the H and J and is almost laughable at italeris attempt at it. all this being said, it is your only option for a J model. so i sucked it up and im working on their 1/48 scale one now.
