For a model airplane, it's great, only 28 parts to snap together. The product description claims no glue is needed but the instructions booklet does mention that cement may be needed based on your preference. One of the bombs did not stay in place from the start. I bought it for our 6 year old son who loves airplanes. After several hours of playing, other pieces started to loosen out of their holes (vertical tails, bombs, Pave Penny) but he still loves his Warthog. As a model to sit on the stand for display, glue may not be necessary, but for playing, this will need cementing. The instructions include very clear diagrams and are easy to follow.
Reissued from an old mold that is almost 50 years old. Its was one the best efforts from Revall/Monogram then and still a very much valid kit. Not as good as some of the more recent kits produced with newer technologies, but neither is it costing an arm and a leg to buy. For it size, when completed, its a bargain. Its had lots of parts and is some what complicated and requires some detail works from the modeler. Its not for beginer, advanced modelers will find lots of aftermarket parts to add on. I wont be surprised those photo etched details and beautiful decals will end up costing more than the kit itself.
I am in between completing this airplane and have found some issues but of course, this is a fairly old plane in the market, almost 10 years old. I have found the plastic molded parts to be very substandard. Plastic very pliable or soft and will bend very easily. Some parts are not aligning properly and is taking a little work to align. I have to be very careful on how much SQUADRON GREEN PUTTY I can use on the model, I don't want to start melting parts. I will post again when the model thoroughly completed and another issues involved.
