Looking for the best kit in terms of accuracy, detail and ease of build. Normally build props so need the jet experten help here. I have both Hasegawa and Academy available.

TIA,
Mike

As Paul said, don't bother looking any further. Fujimi is a solid second though.

The fit is terrible compared to Hasegawa which has a better shape overall. The poor fit of the Fujimi kit is a result of unnecessary engineering breakdowns. Both kits suffer from lack of detail, though Fujimi does get some points for the intake ducting attempt.

to make "specific" birds you have to REMOVE details...NOT add them. Overall look a darn site closer to the ones i see on the flightline everyday.
