"PV-1"
mlaponte
I had an earlier boxing of this in my stash for over 25 years. The molds were from 1987, so they are not the latest and greatest. I enjoyed putting it together. It did require some sanding and filler. The landing gear doors needed to be cut apart and there were no mounting tabs. My decals ended up cracking, but with a little patience and care, they were still usable.

"Disappointed"
sboreczky
I was excited to add this plane to my collection, but ended up very disappointed. The overall fit was terrible. If you want this plane, be prepared to add plenty of filler. The entire nose is clear which you have to put together. The painting was not a problem but again the fit did not meet flush to the fuselage. The wing tabs were not deep enough to hold them in tight to the fuselage. It does have the parts to build an earlier version, which I did. The instructions do not cover this, so I relied on one of my WWII Aircraft books.

 
"poor kit"
hobbylinc1943
I was excited about this model because of the relative obscurity of the plane and the simpleness of the paint schemes. Unfortunately this model has a very poor overall fit, with many parts not fitting. Minicraft kits have engines that generally do not fit well, the fuselage had gaps, the wings fit poorly onto the fuselage, and the tail. don't spend money on this
