Ordered this model for my son who enjoys working on model airplanes, this one in particular had a little sentimental feel to it as he works on jets similar. For those enthusiasts that enjoy models. It's a bit small but still enjoyable to do.
The previous reviewer slammed this kit because he claimed" it's a snap together kit and easily falls apart". This is not a "snap together kit" , I don't know how he came to that conclusion, obviously he didn't read the instructions or the box for that matter. This is a glue together kit, and it's very well detailed. The parts fit is excellent. Hopefully Revell will follow it up with other new tool Star Wars kits, especially a new tool Imperial Star Destroyer kit to replace the horrible 35 year old 1/4222 scale MPC/AMT Star Destroyer. This Republic Star Destroyer is in 1/2256 scale and it is a wonderful kit. Children will need supervision and help in building it. Highly recommended!
I just want to say that I thoroughly enjoyed building this model of the 1/48 scale F-14 Tomcat from Revell. I know that this model is fairly old and that it still continues to be an impressive model to build. I painted the plane with the light colored gray of the underside and a darker gray on the top side of the aircraft. I placed two figures inside the jet to portray a pilot and RIO and was quite pleased with the final assembly of the F-14 TOMCAT. I rate this model a five because of the accuracy, easy assembly and detail of model.
