FineScale Modeler reviews the 1/48 scale plastic model aircraft kit

Upon opening the box you are treated to several blue-gray sprues, an instruction booklet, a beautiful decal sheet by Cartograf for two aircraft, a separate color guide, and a small fret of photo-etch (PE). Weapon pylons for the wings are provided, but no weapons for them. Only test aircraft had these, which rendered the aircraft’s RCS (radar cross section) more visible. I’ve read complaints that the tape to seal the panel gaps is too thick, but less depth would make masking difficult. Since it took me 16 hours to mask and paint this kit, I’m glad the tape is a bit thick.
