    Great price, great model kit

  2. JFMG

    Nice build. Great detail. Uncensored decals. What is unusual for Germany. All In all a must if you’r an aviation fan of the WW2 Era.

    Gift for my friend. Part of the decal sheet had been cut off but otherwise good

    Let’s just say that the only model kits I spend my money on are Tamiya. I have yet to purchase one that was not to the typical high quality and workmanship they are known for. The thing I liked most about this kit is the integrated weighted nose and front landing gear wheel well. The only places that I used any contour putty was a couple of seam lines where the wings mounted to the fuselage, as the any other seam lines were hidden with minimal sanding and primer.
    All in all, a good build…..

    Had to trim more on this plane than any 3 others

    Tamiya kits are fun and challenging. Build was easy to follow, paint and decals make a wonderful model. You won’t be disappointed.

    I am collecting the Early jets so I definitely wanted this one.

  8. Hermi

    Una maqueta espectacular que se puede montar casi de caja, sin necesidad de añadirle ningún accesorio. muy buenos encajes y muy buen despeiece… Altamente recomendable

  9. Amazon Customer

    Looking forward to building this model.

    I gave it 3 stars because I sent it back. I’m sure it would have been fine. I just decided to not tackle the project (changed my mind) at this time.
    I wouldn’t even have given a review except that they’ve been asking me to review it for 6 months and I’m tired of seeing the same, “would you review” popping up!
    I’m sure it’s a great model.

    Really enjoyed this kit. Easy to build, great fit and nice details. More photos on Instagram @bollyiam.

    Nice model

    An diesem Baukasten besticht die hervorragende Passgenauigkeit der Teile. Einziges Manko waren die Aufhängungen der Luft-Luft-Raketen, welche nicht zusammen passten. Toll ist auch, dass dem Bausatz ein Metallteil zur Beschwerung des Bugs beigefügt ist. Somit steht das Modell sicher auf den drei Fahrwerken.
