The copyright on the instruction sheet read “1966”. And it showed. I opted not to attempt the operating landing gear, bomb bay or folding wings version of the assemblies. This was, shall we say, crude by today’s standards, It’s one of those “good from far, but far from good” builds. But…..I did the best I could with what I had to work with. Besides, it was practically free. I got 9 old Monogram kits for like fifty bucks! The engineering, quality, fit and detail of today’s stuff got me spoiled, I guess. These kits don’t have ANY of that….(sigh).
