  1. Donald Hoffmann

    I am thankful for my brother-in-law for being in the air force and getting me into doing aircraft

  2. Overthehill

    Challenging build, good fun.. kept me occupied for an entire day, and still got decals to do, cool!

  3. Dr. B

    Positive(s): I found that the detail of various sections were very good. Instructions could have been better, but sufficient for the model. Negative(s): Fittings were not very good. I had to cut, fill, and sand many parts to get the best fit. A super negative was that the kit came with only one version – that is – landing gear down, ait brakes fully open, and cockpit glass had to be open. For that I am not impressed. In order to change it into a ‘flying’ mode would have taken several additional hours to complete. Probably would not purchase this brand again.

    I do love the finished product, however you will need to be able to putty and sand as there are major gaps on the wings. If you are comfortable with putty and sanding go for it, it starts off a mess with very basic instructions but if you put the work in you will get it looking good.

  5. Chris J

    Had a lot of fun putting this together. I wish they made it easier to keep cockpit closed and flaps down but nice detail and easy to put together.

  6. Nilst.

    Very good model

  7. Chris rishor

    Some of the pieces were a chore to make fit right. A lot of sanding and filling. But over all it turned out pretty good for the money.
    I usually build tamiya. But the warthog wasn’t bad I’ve built worse

  8. dav nagle

    Great kit. Detailed parts that fit together well. Not an expert by any means but relatively easy to build and looks fantastic

  9. Timex

    Easy to build but not to easy so it keeps things interesting. The box was in great shape so shipping did a great job at protecting the package. I like that this model has several munitions and ways to set up the aircraft. I do wish they would include the weight for the front of the plane for balance but nickels work fine too.

  10. Ana arellano

    It was a fun and easy assembly, but it’s designed for ground mode not flying mode.

  11. datty

    Not one of Revell’s most complicated kits; not many parts, the etched details are good and the decals are many although the cockpit ones did not fit well. Once complete and painted up the model looks great. Definitely one for any grade of modeller and a good beginners kit.

  12. Sarah Gilmer

    Product came exactly as described, new in box. A gift for my dad that he’s so excited to put together. “Easy to assemble” was an odd ask, but he said 3/5 because it’s looking like it’ll take him a while to put together haha.

    Overall, I enjoyed building this model. I haven’t assembled a model since I was a teenager. Like a lot of the reviewers, I experienced some challenges with the fit, confusing instructions, and difficulty gluing some of the parts. One thing I have not seen in the previous reviews is the mention of a flaw in the order of assembly.

    The second major step is the construction of the fuselage, and the instructions state to add a small weight to the inside of the nose for proper balance. You then seal the nose cavity with Part 3. Later, you attach the tail assembly. This is the point at which you learn what constitutes a small weight. The weight I added was too small, and I had to cut out Part 3 to add additional weight. I would recommend waiting to attach Part 3 until Section 7, after you complete the landing gear, at which point you can best determine the required weight. Perhaps experienced modelers have the foresight not to follow the instructions, but for less experienced people who follow the instructions, it’s a serious flaw.
