Looks like a good kit!

The only thing I don't like, in the pictures, is the windscreen. In scale that looks like it would be about five inches thick! I understand that this is a result of the manufacturing process, but I'd think that a "special edition" kit like this could at least include a sheet of clear plastic and some cut-out templates.

Much agreed

On the whole when it's finished I think the single weakest part is that windshield, it's just way to thick and it's always the first item people point out when I show them the model. Simple Fine Molds can do way much better than that but for whaterver reason choosed not to.

Thanks for reading the article!

Fantastic review Leo. I love

Fantastic review Leo. I love the designs in this movie and I have always wished for an honest-to-goodness toy of this. Maybe this will just have to do...

Savoia Fine Molds prebuilt

Thanks Josh!

I believe Fine Molds just released a pre-built and painted Savioa S.21. I think Habby link Japan has them for sale, although it would be cool to get a nice metal Savoia s.21.

Cheers!
