  1. Amazon Customer

    Not for faint of heart. Takes a skilled hand.

  2. Amazon Customer

    Assembly hard, but very fun. Also relaxing. Lots of parts, which I like. Would like to see people with kit to put in seats. All in all, great kit.

  3. Russell Williams

    Excellent Model, excellent service from seller! A++++++

  4. Techknowman

    This model fills a niche in my collection that I’d thought would always be lacking. I’m pleased to see that extra parts allow me to use my imagination to create either a bomber or early air tanker. I’m very pleased with the instructions and the fit of the parts. Decal markings leave a little to be desired but that is easily rectified with the aftermarket.

    doesn’t come with paint! says so in the description, also doesn’t come with glue!! this build was an awesome gift for my boyfriend he loves old plane models <3 he finished it in a day, he’s worked on some in the past so that’s also something. great gift!! the size was roughly like a textbook, ya know like a civics/econ or those thick math textbooks.

  6. Techknowman

    Excellent model. Very detailed and informative about the crew areas.

  7. Charles J Gonce

    This was a fun model to build. Its instructions are a little hard to follow and understand and some of the fitment of parts is a bit “fun”. this is why 4 stars instead of 5.

  8. Ed Brewer

    Model is just right. Nice size and pieces are detailed perfectly to fit this scale.
