Eric Another typical Revell offering. Raised panel lines, a truly antique kit using 60s tooling. There are some neat engineering factors with this kit, the guy who oversaw the engineering of this one, considering the time period it was made, was actually thinking. One-piece tail plane makes assembly easy in that area, and protects you from Revell's inability to mold matching halves of an assembly, though you will be sanding the flash off the edges. Articulating gear, arresting hook and wings, though I glued everything in place, styrene shouldn't be made into toys, which is what this kit would be.

Augie Wow Wrench, I think you a little hard on Revell..
I've built many of their kits in my time and I think you might be being a bit harsh they have their problems with some molds, but to be honest I think most manufacturers do
unless its a shake an bake tamigawa...

Eric Haha, maybe I am! I have an Academy b-17 I got as a gift in November, which was my first model. After that It's been revell, (old revell) and the difference in fit is night and day. My point, I'm a modeling noob, this may just be the way things are and I'm too new to know it.

Augie Ahh then welcome to the wonderful world of mold roulette..
to quote the film... "Ya never know what your gonna get"

Clifford Keesler The newer Revell kits are nice, Recessed panel lines etc. But I'm with Augie I like the older Revelle kits, especially the price. It just takes a little work to make them look nice.
