"Decent First Kit"
rja12 (Viera, Florida)
This was my first kit after a 20 + year absence from the hobby. The kit is basic with raised panel lines. My expectations were low, not because of the kit but because I had very little confidence in my building skills. The instructions are simple and the kit went together well. there was some flash and sink marks I had to take care of. the wing-body join seem required a lot off putty. After priming, I used Testors MM paints. This kit was also the first time I had ever used an airbrush. I did the camouflage free-hand. For my first model in years, I was very pleased with the results. The decals were in register but required Solvaset to get them to settle down over the panel lines. Overall, a decent beginners kit.

"Another Fine Revell Kit"
mirecyli
My only British entry into my WWII collection as yet, although I have my eye on the pricey Avro Lancaster bomber. I have seen the Spitfire in action and it is a wonder to see. Every chance I get to see actual birds flying I take it. It will make you want to model all the more. I think Revell models are fine representations of these WWII aircraft if you do not want to spend a lot of time on detail, like cockpits. If the actual lines of the bird is what you want then these kits are for you. Most builds go together beautifully and this was one of those.

 
"Light on the Wallet, Light on the Detail"

I only gave this kit a 3 star due to the lack of detail that is well known for Revell/Monogram kits. If you are looking for detail, you won't find it in this kit. You will be constantly filling seams due to the parts not fitting properly, as well as constant sanding, clipping, and trimming due to poor molding of the kit. However, if you are looking for a relatively easy build that is not too time consuming and a small little project, then this kit is for you. If not, then go with a Tamiya kit, and you'll get your money's worth.

 
"No Frills"
51c4r1u5d0m1nu5
This is a simple model, with very little challenge, no guns, bombs, drop tanks or pilot. It was enjoyable but went together far too quickly, I had it finished in no time. The decals in my set did not match the ones listed in the manual so I had to go by eye, which wasn't difficult as there was very little in the way of decals to start with, most sets have Prop blade stickers, undercarriage decals and smaller decals like no step etc to add that extra level of detail, which this set does not have, overall value for money should be sought in another product.
