I appreciate this kit being available, the engine detail, instructions, only a little flashing, the decal options, variants and separate ailerons, elevators and rudder. But I personally found it to be a difficult kit. The fitting of the engine in the cowl is difficult. I had to trim parts of the engine. Assembly of the cockpit into the joining halves of the fuselage is fiddly. Fitting the top wing on the six struts is difficult. There are minuscule holes on the wings/fuselage for the minuscule studs on the base of the struts. It would have been a lot easier and stronger if the struts had fit into cavities the size of the base of the strut. The engine gets stuck on the front a bit haphazardly. The struts have to be very carefully removed from the sprue to avoid damaging them. So expect some awkwardness.
