  3. I hate being a nitpicker, but one of the best models in this selection, the highly-weathered Kate, is a perfect example of the most common failure of modelers: failure to do research. That's pretty much the way a Kate would have looked, had it been found at Rabaul in 1943 or Truk in 1944. But on Akagi? Sunk at Midway? Sorry, the aircraft of Kido Butai we kept in like-new condition on those ships that first six months of the war. Put a different air group marking on the tail, like the 252nd at Rabaul in November 1943, and this model is wonderful. And it's not like this is rocket science or highly-difficult information to obtain.
