The original Monogram release was the first kit I remember building with my father back in 1959. It helped to lead to a life-long love of modeling for me. The molds were in remarkably good shape with minimal flash. One change I noticed was that the original Monogram kit had rubber main landing gear tires where you had to use a hot knife to flare the end of the landing gear axles. This release has plastic molded wheels, which is an improvement in my opinion. Shapes and proportions look good, representative of Monogram kits of that era. A nostalgic build for me, but the finished model looks great.
Nice model. Low parts count. Very prominent raised details. Blue mold color allows for only having to paint the underside. Parts fit was good.
