This is an injection-plastic aircraft model kit.
Valom's kit is a worthy replacement for the old Airfix kit, and includes a resin engine and cockpit tub, as well as resin wheels and, in this release, two resin 500 lb. bombs. Photoetched parts are supplied for the cockpit panels and belts. An injection canopy is included. Panel lines are recessed and fine. Decals are for two camoflaged early-war aircraft from 1942: #8 aboard the USS Enterprise and #5 on Wake Island. This kit will require some basic modeling skills, but nothing beyond the abilities of those with a couple of kits under their belt. It will also give you the chance to add a modern kit of one of the USN's most important types during this period to your collection.
