Smile The parts and kit

The kit design is good and relatively uncomplicated. It also has minimal internal framing that is common to so many new designs. I guess since it is round sections that are simply joined, there is no need to too much of internal structure. The kit is a repaint and small modifications to their earlier RF-84F and F-84F kit.

As stated before, the printed paper quality is average and could have been better. In any case we shall see as the build continues. I think that the final product is an attractive looking model at average complexity. There also will be a compromise between metallic paper and just varying shades of gray. I personally do not like the metallic silver paper, so this kit is good for me as is.

In addition to the kit itself, I purchased the laser cut frames, canopy and resin wheels. So the build will be easier for me to build. However, a quick look at the model and I can see that it is not too difficult to do without all these extras.
