Roden 1/144 Boeing 720B Pan American

October 22, 2021 · in Aviation · · 26 · 2.2K

This is the first time I have assembled a kit.
The box art is attractive, but the kit itself has a nice atmosphere when completed.
The accuracy of the parts was good and they took shape quickly.
However, because the surface of the parts is pear-shaped, I had to re-carve almost all the molds during the surface treatment process.

Also, the quality of the decals was not as good as I would have liked, and I had a hard time with that.
