    Perfetto, arrivato leggermente in ritardo ma prodotto come da descrizione

    This is a fairly good model set, albeit one with a few issues. There there were a few parts that didn’t quite fit perfectly together, though a more skilled modeler might have been able to work around that. A more serious issue is that the instruction booklet suffers from a lack of clarity in several places, meaning that one has to guess how some pieces are meant to fit together. I even finished the model with a couple of small pieces LEFT OVER. I’ve scoured the instructions many times trying to figure out where the pieces were supposed to have gone… and I still have no idea. There is also a great deal of ambiguity in the painting guide: while the smaller pieces are labeled as being painted black, white, etc… the instructions (a decently translated guide from Korea with a few instances of mildly amusing “Engrish” errors) don’t tell you what colors to apply to the main body at all. I went with a combination of Dark and Light Ghost Grays… which turned out to be much more bluish than I would’ve liked, but I digress. Aside from these problems, the molding of the pieces themselves is very good. If you are considering purchasing this kit, I would warn newer model builders that this kit in particular has some very, VERY tiny pieces, and many quite delicate ones. Compared to the Revel F-35 kit at this same scale (1:72) this kit seems much more delicate- many pieces (like the landing gear doors) connect at almost unbelievably small points of attachment. This is not a piece you’re going to want to pick up or move very much at all once it’s done. As for the nearly microscopic antenna that sit on the nose of the aircraft, I left those pieces off completely. All in all, a good model set that will be quite beautiful given a lot of patience and a steady hand, but not a perfect one.

    Assembling takes around 3 hours, maybe shorter for kit lovers.

    Kit itself is quite good (accurate, delicate, smallest parts of size around (1 mm)^3). You need to buy a tweezer and kit/plastic glue (0.1fl.oz is more than enough), you may also need to buy a side cutter if you don’t have a nail clipper.

    The water stickers are very easy to fall off (3 out of 8 stickers fell off when I touched them after 4 hours), not as good as the stickers of my previous models. This is the reason I didn’t give it 5 stars.

    Of 3 Raptor’s mock-ups that I have mounted (italeri, hobbyboss, and this one) that of Academy is an abyss as armed and detail, and the most exact to the aspect of the real plane. If, it gives work, this is the grace, it is not a toy for small children, and you them trace of Cartograf a marvel.

    This appears to be the 1/48 kit scaled down, with excellent fit and detail. Full weapons are included and decals again are by Cartograph. The model was an excellent buy from Amazon.

    Hermosamente detallado, con opciones para la cabina con plástico transparente o ahumado. 1000% satisfecho con la compra!!!! Y súper recomendable!!!

    This is my first academy model. I think that the fitting is good but not great. The accuracy with the real f-22 is good enough for me. Two canopy pieces with different colors is very cool. Wish this comes with a pilot but I already knew it does not before the purchase.

    Good model and replica. Had alot of fun building it. Pretty easy build and directions were pretty easy to follow. Never had worked with a Korean brand before, but overall I’d say that it’s a nice replica and fun build to do. Worth the money I thought.
