  1. Elena

    The model parts do not fit together properly. It needs more body puty to make it fit.

  2. Alejandro Fernandez

    Initial details are great. Some scratch building kicked it up a notch.

  3. Rodrigo Mtz

    Muy buenos acabados, llegó antes de lo esperado, buena atención por parte del vendedor

  4. Steven S Ohata

    Model has a lot of potential to be really cool, but the kit I received was missing all of bombs that attach under the wings. No response from Revell customer service after 10 days and repeated attempts. Very disappointing.

  5. Yash Oza

    Quite disappointed, received the box with parts missing.
    Both GBU-31 and MK 83 bombs were missing.

  6. Jose Benjamin Lopez Echevarria

    Buenos detalles en su fabricacion

  7. Yash Oza

    Included extra parts with no instructions. You have to prefit pieces and do some adjustments to fit. Wish there was an option to build model with landing gear up.

  8. Michelle C.

    Quality model, But too bad that not all the parts were in the box. The manufacturer(Revell)agreed to send the parts for free.

  11. Donna Lovern

    No le doy 5 estrellas ya que la caja venía muy maltratada y las piezas corrien riesgo de daño. Fuera de ahí se que disfrutaré mucho armando este modelo.

    First thing I noticed is the instructions have been improved and there’s extra ordinances included. I’ve already built this same kit with a different decal set. Not too bad, but it does need work for best results. The fuselage and the landing components were the most challenging for me. I had to fill and reshape the nose because the plastic was not molded very well and the lading components have a lot of very small fragile parts. These small parts can get easily lost or broken. I pretty much sanded and smoothed out almost every part for best results. Laying the blue pinstripe decals was also a bit challenging because the reference pictures don’t line up correctly. The reference pictures have a smooth rounded tip instead of a point. The blue tip actually goes further up front on the this model. Once I did that, all the pinstripe decals lines up correctly. I painted it mostly with Vallejo and Testor’s model master acrylic paints. I did use my airbrush kit to paint the exterior. Overall I’m very happy with my final results on this one. Note: it comes with NO PILOT!
