Taking into consideration all the inaccuracies, the purchase of this kit is IMHO wasting money, despite its engine. Ridiculous cockpit and shape of canopy, canvas surfaces (corrected a little), wrongly shaped rudder and tailplane, wrongly angled strengthening ribs in the wheel wells, poor quality and wrong colors on decals (especially in British Tomahawk Mk II edition) in a modern kit with such a high price is unacceptable. I will not spend so much money to buy this kit only to take the engine to install it in Airfix kit. The rest can go to the trash bin. Airfix wins here. Sorry Bronco. Since we have Airfix, your kit is wasting time and ammo.
