It was $55.99 at my LHS, but I told the owner it was too high and he let me have it for $39.99. The parts look okay, but the plastic is a little soft. Some of the detailing is weird; tailwheel and well kind of overdone, too many parts that don't show (stick linkage, engine accessories) and I'm not a fan of gun bays. In the cockpit the boot at the base of the stick is missing. Overall, I think it will build up quite nicely, so at this point I'm happy.

For $ 39.50 so that sounds about right. I am very pleased with the kit and think it looks pretty good. I jud=st dont know why they did not give ya the part to do the cowl flaps open. I mean they made it a seperate peice like Tamiyas but just forgot to make the open option. But I am pretty happy with it.
