It´s bigger, more chunky . The fit is better but..there are still gaps in the couling cover and the tailplane section. Not as good as the academy one, the fusealage / Wing details aren´t as defined.
The decals (there is a choice of two designs) are better than the shiny plastic ones from Academy.
|I´m finally getting the hang of making the props look like they are made from wood.|
|The rigging between the wing struts was a pain!|
|The nice thing about this Revell kit, the wingflaps are pre-scored so a small slice into each and they can be hung as if in a resting position.|
Both variants together. Note how much bigger the Revell version is compared to the Academy one.
|The top wing sits higher above the fusealage on the Revell version than the Academy one.|
|Wider, longer wings, much bigger fusealge.|
