The kit comes with five bags of sprues in four colours, black, white, grey and silver and of course the clear parts. There is good detail and the quality of the moulds is very good with do scratches, flashing and few injection pin marks, of which are all in good places so they will never been seen when assembled.


The panel lines are recessed and the rivets are raised. The kit comes with a stand which can be set at various angles using the supplied small nuts and bolts. There is also the photo etch parts for the cockpit and other areas.
