      Mixed feelings..

      The airmodel itself is very nice for the most part, however the tail comes off super easy, other then that the model is fairly nice. My complaints lie with how it took to get here (2 and 1/2 months) As well as the quality of the stand that comes with it, Not only is the stand not great quality compared to the plane but the part the plane sits on is both crooked and doesn't fit snugly in the plane, so when it's sitting on the stand the plane has a lot of degree of motion rather then sitting still, It's also slightly angled downwards on the left side so the plane doesn't sit level on it either. All in all the plane itself is okay however the time it took to arrive as well as this absolute sorry excuse for a stand are the reasons i can't give this a higher rating then 3* Like I honestly cannot stress enough how disappointed I am with this stand it is truly terrible.

        Accurate details, pleased with model

        For the price I understand it is no conversation starter, but the detail is very good for the size of the model. More than happy!

            Great looking model

            The model looks great but the gear was a little bend when it arrived, but that was nothing serious.
