Comments This is almost the perfect sci-fi model kit. There were only two problems.

The joint between the rear fuselage and the main fuselage could have have been a bit smoother. Make sure you keep the pivot rods and holes clean - paint build-up makes it harder to mount the wing assembly flush into the fuselage (and, thus, get the rear plate to fit flush.

The second problem was not the kit's fault. I was very grateful for the English translation available as a download but it was missing the painting and decal instructions. You get lots of decals and I'm sure some decals go on all versions and other don't. But you've really got no way of figuring this out without a translator.

That said, this is still a beautiful kit and it's easy to make it look good.
