Such a great build! Like it! I already saved some stuff as reference for my own kit when being build!

Great reference build.

 

May i ask how would you rate the kit in aspect of buildability (including issues and positives that it offers)?

 

Im deciding what should i take (hasegawa/eduard-academy or ZM) considering that the ZM costs nearly double as either of both, is the question if it is worth? Does it assemble itself so much better? Im no external contour fanatic, so if it looks like a F-4J its pretty much close enough for me.

 

I did not read carefully enough though, are the fit issues due to insufficient dry-fitting/or similar, or are a general design issue - i know that i should read it once more in detail prior posting, but somehow i dont get to it at this time due to work :(

 

regards, Marko

Marko,

   if price is a consideration, I'd opt for one of the Academy F4 kits. I built the B and it's more detailed and a better fitting kit then the old Hasegawa kit. Buy what AM parts you feel you want, not what Eduard decides to include in the kit.  Like I posted, I'm getting a ZM J and the Academy C.
