"Awesome"
simpson.leon
Having built over 100 1/72 scale kits, I can honestly say that this one is in the top 5%. Molding is flawless, fit is perfect, and assembly easy as it gets. Landing gear is a bit fiddly, but well represented. Instructions are good, and should be followed carefully. Paint callouts abound. Decals are top notch. I would highly recommended this kit to all 1/72 aficionados.

"Outstanding fit and detail"
james.white (Portland, Oregon, USA)
This is a lovely kit of a beautiful airplane. I chose to build mine in a wheels-up configuration. The gear doors fit perfectly, as did all of the other parts in this kit. The only screw-ups were my own. I've built dozens of 1/72 kits, and I can't think of a better one than this. I was grateful for the amazing decals to help with all of the blue surfaces. I thought I might work my way up to some kind of con about this kit, but I just can't do it. You know those times when you're building a kit and you think, Oh, here's the part where I'll be filling and sanding for an hour. Not with this one. Astonishingly good fit. And what about the detail? I paused to take pictures of the panel lines before, during, and after painting. This is a great kit to geek out about, especially since few of us have ever seen one of these birds in person. And who can't love the sweeping lines and elegant curves? Highly, highly recommended.

Another nice kit that’s all time consuming everything fits great...

This was a great build. Very easy and everything fit beautifully. Because everything just seem to be perfect as I got deeper in the build I found that what I had started on Friday after work was a great finished product on Sunday afternoon. The cockpit has a lot of detail and the decals are flawless and line up perfectly.
