Daniel Smith
This can be a great starter kit for a beginner, and at 20 dollars you can't beat that. Places like HobbyLobby you can pick one up for even cheaper with there 40% off coupon(around 8 dollars with coupon before tax), that you can get off there web site. The only real downside is the amount of injector pin marks, there on about 50% of the parts. Which have to be cleaned up, some are removed with little to no work with putty and sanding. While others that are near raised panel lines, will need more attention so not to remove the panel lines and other detail's.

Kevin Ekstrom The kit builds into a great replica with some elbow grease. It's not really a starter kit, just a kit that needs some muscle to make it shine, and having that muscle to make it into a winner goes way beyond being a so called "starter kit". I don't believe in the moniker "starter kits", it's a fallacy calling any kit a starter kit. It comes down to degrees of difficulty in the build and the effort the model builder is willing to put into it. Just because a kit is sparse does not mean it wont shine.

Lost_Erik Looks great. Any details, struggles or victory stories to share?
24. April 2017 at 04:40:29
Daniel Smith Thanks Erik. The kit is simple, with very little problems. I'll post a run down of the problems I ran into. :)
24. April 2017 at 16:00:49
Daniel Smith One of two problems I ran into was, part E1 and B16. When B16 is placed as shown, the center cone did not line up flush with E1. So I glued the cones together first, then glued sides that go over the air intakes. Second was the nose did not line up flush with the main air frame, so I started with 400 grit sand paper and grinded it down flush, then polished the scratches away with fine sandpaper, starting at 800 and finishing with 2000.
