Devastator Floatplane

GWH's is a complex kit. The fit of parts is very good, and the detailing of panels and cockpit components is satisfactory. On the downside, the kit lacks a dolly. Moreover, there are many small, photoetched parts to add. The majority of them do not make a substantial difference to the detailing of the model. References are required because the instructions are misleading in terms of wrong numbering and placement, particularly photoetch parts. Also, some components of the wheeled do not appear on the , such as antenna mast, sight, rear machine gun and the arresting hook.
