One of those models where everything went wrong: gluing a prominent piece the wrong way and noticing way too late to correct it, stepping on the canopy leaving a large crack down the length of it, doing everything I could to not knock off that tiny antenna on the rudder and then somehow knocking it off after it had been painted and decaled while gluing on the very last pieces (pitot probes, lights), etc. It was a relief to get this one finished! As far as the model itself, it was OK. Lots of parts for such a small kit. Instructions are a bit busy. The usual Hasegawa irritation of not including any external stores. Goes together easily except I had major issues trying to correctly seat the (avionics?) hump on the back. Next to my ancient Monogram A-4s, however, even with my self-inflicted errors, it looks light years ahead of them.
