Overall Rating       Well worth getting.
Comments This is the first "real" model I built. It is the sweetest thing in the world. I airbrushed it so all the parts would look more "real", a little matte, and not so plasticky. Its really easy to build, I had no problems as long as you follow the clear instructions. If you break/mess up anything (like I did due to airbrush inexpierence) you can reorder runners, but they are around 10-15 USD a runner I think. CAUTION take your time on wiring. It was hard for me, and if you mess it up, it is a pain to fix. My cockpit only lights up half the time, and I can't figure it out. Verdict: if you build this, people who know what it is will be super impressed. People who don't what it is are still impressed when you show it to them. Even all my friends that laugh at my "toys" were impressed. I never regretted speding the money: I got weeks of fun building it slowly in stages.
