Your career as a straight man needs some more work

Yes, I spotted your fiendish trap, Evil one.

 

Anyway, who's bought this blasted kit, enquiring minds need to know

I heard the word 'patience' once. I went to look up the meaning, but I got annoyed and gave up because it was taking too long.

The kit is now available from the Roden Store, in Australia it is $65 plus post, I think I will wait until our local hobby shops have them in stock, at least I will be assured of prompt delivery. Before buying one I will wait until I see a decent review of the kit, lots of bad things have been said over the past few days so I will wait to read a proper review.

Hi All

Just received one from an eBay seller in Poland.

First review out of the box:
- Lot of sprues in a small plastic bag in a large cardboard box with a great box art in the cover, no pb all content absolutely well protected.

- First personnal impress: parts and runners are flawless. That means production process quality (and/or control?), and one other remark: sprues are "heavy" (good plastic fill in the mold cavity).
Great surface detail too, looks like the O-1.

- clear parts are thin and transparency is here, the windscreen is perfectly molded and very thin too.

This is what I can say from now and I repeat: from my own copy.

Yes, it looks a whole lot better than before. I also notice that the window retaining flanges do exist but are located on the fuselage parts, which allows for them to be inserted after painting - though the roof one may be cussedly difficult still.

Thanks for posting the mini review
