2018-10-01 16:49:36First things, company is ok to deal with in regards to admin questions and requesting a replacement part. Parts can take up to two weeks after ordering though. Questions about the build is left up to the forum, so plan on spending time there. The plane, it's pretty detailed and not. They give you a semi detailed cockpit, but the canopy, you're given a flat sheet of clear material to cut out. Seriously, one of the most iconic features of the plane is the bubble canopy. For the price of the model, there should have been a molded part. The rest of the parts are pretty decent. Wood parts are cut nicely an fit well. There will be sanding to have a smooth surface for the metal panels to lay on. Receiving stages and instructions, the stages are out of order as are the instructions. You're given pieces of the plane to put together and then tell you to set it aside. There's little continuity. Example, the propeller is in the first stage. They don't give you all the parts, so they tell you clean and polish what parts are given and then told to set them aside. I believe the next time you'll work with the prop is five months later, why. All in all, it's a nice model.
