    A nice easy to build model.

  2. David McMillan

    Really liked the model and instructions.

    I thought it came out nicely. For the most part, everything came together well.
    Putting the cockpit in required a little elbow grease but everything else went smoothly.

  5. Matt

    Had some minor fitting issues and has decent details. Overall a good kit.

  6. niall h

    goes together well. needs a little filling and sanding here and there. the munitions have very poor fit so maybe leave them off or get after market

    I resumed scale modeling at the start of the pandemic so I’m certainly no expert, but this is the first Tamiya kit I’ve been disappointed in. Obviously an old tooling, the kit lacks detail, there are many ejector pin marks although most won’t be visible. A few ill fitting seams requiring sanding &/or filling. On the plus side, it’s a easy build & makes an impressive model given the distinctive profile of the aircraft. Feels overpriced with its issues. I’d go with the Hobby Boss kit.

    Excellent service great product.

  9. William Conwell

    This is a well made product. A lot of other models I’ve assembled before had overflow plastic and it took a lot of time cleaning thar away. These parts are clean and precise. I would definately give this as a gift. I’m putting this one together and painting it as a present for a ten year old with muscle control problems. I’m having a blast and hope the ten year old enjoys it.

    Brrrrt! Great kit although the panle lines are really bad for a Tamiya kit had to over scribe them to get the definition when washing it after painting lots of tiny details to lose yourself in and obsess over at 1/48 scale it’s a great size if you have the room

  11. regular guy

    Great kit, comes with decals for different units, can make a specific plans. Tons of detail. Parts are will for and molded. Option for gear up or down, canopy open or closed, entry ladder or not.

  12. Jack Hall

    Well the service was good got the product nice and quick, however this model really needs to be retired or re tooled, Tamiya are the best in the business but this kit is 43 years old and boy does it show it. Raised panel lines thick black plastic. No real cockpit details. I sold this and got the hobby boss one which is much better. Tamiya please re tool this to your modern standards it will have modellers purring with delight.

    After doing 8 Tamiya models, I can say they have excellent quality. Especially the large aircraft carrier.
    This model unfortunately is not up to their quality. Very little detail, very few parts, no masking for canopy. I had to check twice to ensure it was Tamiya.
    Very disappointing. It’s like a kids toy. Unimpressed
