A re-boxing of a Hasegawa kit, this went together beautifully. No fit issues to speak of, save a small gap on the underside wing root to fuselage. The resin cockpit set is one of the best I have used so far, and if I have the choice, I’ll happily use SBS sets again. Decals were a bit of a marathon, taking a day and a half, but they too performed perfectly. All in all, a most enjoyable build.
Another one for the scrap-book!
